Qatar Fuel (Woqod) on Tuesday opened the Ras Bu Abboud Petrol Station, taking the number of petrol stations on its network to 88. This came as part of Woqod's ongoing expansion plans that seek to serve every area in Qatar, the company said in a press statement.
Woqod managing director and CEO Saad Rashid al-Muhannadi said, “We are pleased to open a new fixed petrol station in Ras Bu Abboud. Woqod aspires to expand its petrol station network in the country to meet the rising demand for petroleum products and achieve the goal of providing customers with access to best-in-class products and services at their convenience and comfort.
"Woqod recently accelerated the process for the construction of new petrol stations to meet the fuel and energy needs of the country. The Woqod team would like to extend their gratitude to all governmental and private entities concerned that contributed to the completion of this project.”
The Ras Bu Abboud Petrol Station is spread over an area of 15,200 sq m and has three lanes with nine dispensers.
The new petrol station offers round-the-clock services to residents, and includes a Sidra convenience store, manual car wash, oil change and tyre repair, and sale of LPG cylinders, in addition to sale of gasoline and diesel products for light vehicles, the statement notes.
Al-Muhannadi added that Woqod is currently overseeing the implementation of 23 new petrol stations, most of which will be operational in 2019.
He concluded his announcement, saying: “As part of its strategic expansion plan, Woqod is targeting the achievement of a total of 114 fuel stations by the end of 2020.”
