Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) has announced plans to build 10 new service stations in 2017, as part of its 2020 expansion programme to increase its retail network capacity by 40 percent.

The group’s plans for this year started with the opening of its new Warsan service station, with other locations to include Sheikh Zayed Road, Al Barsha South, Hessa Street, Sheikh Rashid Road, Bab Al Shams, Hatta, Jumeirah Village, Al Lehbab Road, and Academic City Road.

The company said in a statement that it also plans to open 54 new service stations across the UAE by the end of the decade.

Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC, said: “The growing demand for service stations is directly linked to the country’s rapid population growth, which presents an opportunity for us to contribute to expanding the UAE’s infrastructural capabilities.

"While the UAE is gearing up for the Expo 2020, we are committed to aligning our strategy to meet the energy needs of the country.”
