Service is offered from midnight to 6am but retailer says keen to extend facility to regular operational hours
The entire service station network of Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) and Emirates Petroleum Products Company (EPPCO) in Dubai now offers the self-service facility from midnight to 6am, it was announced on Monday.
This follows the introduction of the self-service facility during late operational hours at 23 more service stations across the network, taking the total number of service stations providing the service to 88.
All the stations also now accept fuel purchase payments at the forecourt itself, the company said in a statement.
A spokesperson of ENOC said: "We have achieved a milestone in implementing fuel self-service during late operational hours across our entire ENOC/EPPCO network in Dubai. Our goal is to extend the facility to regular operational hours.
"More motorists are now using the self-service facility effortlessly, with the added convenience of making the payment at the forecourt itself. We are thankful to our customers for adopting the initiative, which gives them the freedom to fill-pay and go, at their convenience."
The new sites where the self-service facility has been implemented are along 2nd December Street, Oud Metha Road, The Meadows, Discovery Gardens, Al Barsha 1 and 3, Al Mamzar, Al Ittihad Road, Mirdif, Al Warqaa, Al Twar, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road, Al Mizhar, Al Awir, Emirates Road and Al Qusais.
The company said that the introduction of self-service has resulted in no staff redundancies as affected staff members have been deployed in other service stations within the network.For all the latest retail news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
