The retail arm of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) is expanding its network in the region. As part of the expansion plan, it is planning to build 54 new service stations in Dubai and 11 more in Saudi Arabia. It expects to increase the capacity of its network of stations by 40% in the next four years.

“Our service station expansion programme is part of our growth strategy and we hope to alleviate some of the issues for our valued customers as we innovate to implement new technologies to promote sustainability, enhance customer experience and ensure the highest standards of health and safety,” says Burhan Al Hashemi, managing director, ENOC Retail.

ENOC is currently operating a network of over 112 service stations in Dubai and the Northern Emirates and has three service stations in Saudi Arabia. Currently it is renovating two major service stations in Dubai Internet City and Oud Metha to add more facilities and reduce waiting time at the pumps. The Dubai Internet City station is likely to start operations in June.

Further ENOC Retail has seven stations under construction in Al Barsha South 1st and 4th, Al Ruwaiyah, Warsan 3rd, Al Sufouh, Discovery Gardens and Oud Metha. Additional locations planned for 2016 and 2017 include eight stations across Jumeirah Village, Dubai Investment Park 1st, Al Marmum, Nad Al Sheba, Dubai Industrial City 3rd, Al Lusaily, Dubai Al Ain road and Hatta.
