Total number of fuel stations offering self service facilities between midnight and 6am tops 65
Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) has introduced fuel self-service to another 20 service stations in Dubai.
The move will take the total number of ENOC/EPPCO service stations offering the self-service facility, from midnight to 6am, to more than 65, the company said in a statement.
ENOC said it has also introduced the convenience of making fuel purchase payments at the forecourt itself instead of having to make the payments at the convenience store.
A spokesperson of ENOC said: "The self-service facility is being introduced progressively across the entire network of ENOC/EPPCO service stations. To add to the convenience of motorists, they can now make payments at the fuelling point itself.
"We had initially launched self-service at service stations that have relatively low vehicle traffic at late operational hours. The effortless ease with which customers can fill fuel themselves and more motorists embracing the initiative, we are now extending the facility across the network."
The new sites where the facility has been introduced include ENOC service stations in Bur Dubai, Umm Ramool, Al Wasl, Mohammed Bin Zayed Road, Ras Al Khor, Rashidiya, Jumeirah, Al Barsha, Hatta Road, Al Ghusais, Jebel Ali Industrial Area, Al Khail Road and Oud Metha.
"The introduction of self-service will result in no staff redundancies as affected staff members are being deployed in other service stations within the network," the company added.
