Dammam, Saudi Arabia; March 8, 2017: Emirates National Oil Company "ENOC" revealed its ambitious expansion plans in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, by opening the sixth service station in Saudi Arabia with the aim to reach up to 14 stations in 2017.
The new service station operating 24 hours in Dammam is located on King Khaled Street and is differentiated by its convenience store offerings, incorporates world-class standards of Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) processes and procedures and ensures the highest levels of safety standards for customers and their vehicles.
His Excellency Saif Humaid Al Falasi, Group CEO of ENOC, said: "We remain committed to our investment in Saudi Arabia as the Kingdom looks to diversify its economy in line with the Saudi Vison 2030 agenda. As the largest Arab economy in the region with one of the highest population growth, we believe there is great potential for the fuel station business, especially as the country's road and transport infrastructure receives a boost from private investment. Inter-Gulf cooperation is integral to the region's resilience in light of the current economic challenges and we are committed to supporting this drive and sharing best practices.
"ENOC is known for its high safety standards both in its fuel and non-fuel business. We will ensure these stringent standards are met across our network in Saudi Arabia, which will directly benefit customers who frequent our stations."
The group plans to solidify its presence in key areas and highways by increasing the number of service stations in KSA from five to fourteen station during the current year, taking into account the evaluation of new sites to widen its network of stations in the coming years. The new stations include 2 in Riyadh and 7 in the East of the Kingdom covering Khobar, El Ahsa, Saihat and Dammam.
