The Business Conversion of petrol vehicles to run on Auto Gas (LPG)was introduced by the LAUGFS under the name of Gas Auto Lanka Limited in the year 1994, as a pioneer of this enterprise in Sri Lanka with ten Auto Gas filling station network to carter to motor vehicles converted for Auto Gas. In August 2004, LAUGFS Petroleum was conceived to give focus and to enhance the operations of the LAUGFS filling stations. Simultaneously, with the liberalization of the petroleum sector, the opportunity to retail all auto fuels including petrol and diesel arose creating a sound platform for the company to enter into petroleum distribution and retail. Pioneering the state of the art filling station concept to Sri Lanka, our service and presence have enabled us to achieve a firm footing in the market. In 2004, with four filling stations our sales were 290,360 gallons per month , where as in 2014 with 14 filling stations the gallonage have increased up to 1,451,800. Our annual revenue in the business is approximately US $ 78 million. We are the dealers for Ceylon Petroleum Corporation and Lanka Indian Oil Company who are the current TWO players in this fuel industry in Sri Lanka. Our ultimate goal is to become the official THIRD player in the petroleum industry in Sri Lanka in 2017 with 100 filling station joint network (LAUGFS 50 and Franchised outlet 50) It is our foremost intention to open up at least seven new filling stations at selected locations in different Provincials before the end of this financial year (2014/15) and to enhance the number of filling stations to 25 and already we have reached up to 14 including 3 LIOC dealerships. Our greatest expectation is to increase the number of filling stations up to 20 or more at the end of 2014. 5. Ceylon Petroleum Corporation dealer outlet at Yakkala in Western Province 6.
