Woqod is also planning to increase the number of dispensers at fuel stations.


Woqod (Qatar Fuel) has an “ambitious” plan to increase the number of its fuel stations in Qatar to 120 within three years, according to CEO Saad Rashid al-Muhannadi.
Within the next one year, about 30 fuel stations will be completed, he said.
The company is also planning to increase the number of dispensers within the currently operational stations by 59% in 2018, and will continue with the same rate of increase in 2019 and 2020. 
This, he said, is to “reduce the vehicle congestion within petrol stations resulting from the decommissioning of many private stations.”
Al-Muhannadi said Woqod “in pursuit of its role of serving the country and the community would not hesitate to build fuel stations on any location and at any time in case of availability of land and viability of the project, regardless of the cost value and profit and loss considerations.”
As regards the precautionary measures undertaken by Woqod to face the “negative repercussions” of the blockade, and ensure continuity of company operations in relation to bitumen, oils and lubricants imported from abroad, al-Muhannadi said the company had carried out the necessary contractual arrangements with substitute sources, and provided appropriate means of logistic support, such as ships and other means. 
The company also co-ordinated with Qatar Petroleum (QP) in relation to the “Ship to ship” bunkering operations from Ras Laffan bunkering facilities.
