Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) plans to expand its retail and service stations network by 2020 to 191 service stations across the UAE, up from its current 129 stations in the lead up to Expo 2020 Dubai, the company announced on May 27.

“We are committed and well-prepared to support the UAE’s expansion vision by building a robust fuel retail infrastructure needed in the run up to EXPO 2020, expected to attract over 20 million visitors, and beyond,” Saif Al Falasi, ENOC CEO said.

ENOC is working on opening 15 service stations in 2019, with five service stations and three compact stations in Dubai. In addition, the company plans to build a total of 47 service stations by 2020, of which 25 stations are in Sharjah, four in the Northern Emirates and 15 stations in Dubai.

Moreover, ENOC’s new service station at the Expo 2020 Dubai site will be contemporary, sustainable, and will feature a unique architecture design that uses the latest technologies such as carbon-fiber and wind turbines.

It is worth mentioning that ENOC has launched an innovative payment system with the use of ENOCPay, a cashless, cardless payment solutions app for both fuel and non-fuel products at ENOC and EPPCO service stations.
