Qatar Fuel (Woqod) has signed seven new contracts with two local contracting companies for the establishment of fuel stations in different areas of Qatar.

Woqod chief executive officer Ibrahim Jaham al-Kuwari and Al Uqab Trading and Contracting Company chief executive officer Siva Prasad signed the contracts at the Woqod Tower in Doha.

Al-Kuwari said: “We are glad to  sign the seven contracts for the establishment of new fuel stations in different areas of the state. Construction work shall start immediately at Al Qtaifyah, Freij Bin Derham (Bin Dirham Road), Al Rayyan and Al Jadeed in Doha.”

He said the contracts covered the construction of two stations on the Salwa Road, particularly along the Al Mseihabiyah and Sodanthell Crossroads areas.

“In light of the pressing demand at the Al-Shemal area, top priority has been given for immediate construction in the Ein Sinan (Fleiha) area and Al Shemal city where these stations are expected to meet the local demand for various essential petroleum products and services among our clients,” al-Kuwari explained.

He noted that the company was expected to build and operate some 13 new stations between 2014 and 2015 following Woqod’s plans to reach 100 stations by the end of its 2014-2018 plan.

Through an Emiri Decree, Woqod was established mainly as a services company. Its major goal is “to provide distinguished, high-quality services that meet the latest local safety, security and environmental standards and to set a leading model among modern fuel stations that operate in top industrial and high-tech countries in Europe and overseas”.

Rather than seeking mere profitability, Woqod says it has been “keen on providing service wherever needed”.

Woqod is “determined to proceed with the strategy of providing quality services at its fuel stations and for its butane gas and retail services”.
