Emirates National Oil Co (ENOC) has announced plans to build 54 new service stations over the next four years.
The expansion plan kicked off with the opening of a gas station in the Dubai International Academic City area, the company said in a statement.
Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC, said: “Our service station expansion programme is part of ENOC’s wider growth strategy over the next few years to cater to the growing demand of our valued customers.
"We continue to innovate in implementing new technologies to promote sustainability, enhance customer experience and ensure the highest standards of health and safety."
As part of the five-year strategy 2016-2021, ENOC said in August that it will focus its efforts and investments on fulfilling Dubai's energy needs through the expansion of its refinery and service station network, building terminals storage capacity, and increasing its market share in the marketing of diesel, jet fuel and LPG.
The company said it will focus on expanding capacities in order to support domestic energy demand including a 50 percent capacity increase of its Jebel Ali refinery to reach 210,000 barrels per day, as well as the construction of Project Falcon's 19km jet fuel pipeline extension to Al Maktoum Airport by end of 2018.
"The Academic City service station is a model of a sophisticated service station that makes our customers’ lives easier and minimises environmental impact,” added Al Falasi.
Other retail facilities at the station include ZOOM convenience store with Pronto, Autopro, Papa Murphys Pizza, Popeyes Chicken and McDonald’s.
