Woqod Opens New Service Station in Al Egda
Wednesday, June 21, 2017
Gulf Times -- Qatar Fuel (Woqod) opened on Wednesday a new petrol station in Al Egda - Al-Khor. It is the fourth station to be commissioned in 2017 after Al Mashaf – Wukair, Abu Nakhla – Salwa Road, and Um Ghuwailina – Doha Center, which were inaugurated during the first quarter of the year.
With the opening of Al Egda, the total number of petrol stations owned by Woqod now stands at 46, excluding mobile stations.
This new petrol station is spread over a 17,000 square meter area, and has a Fahes Center within its premises. The center “is almost complete and is expected to be open very soon.” The station will offer basic services, including all petroleum products, in addition to Sidra C- store, oil change, tire repair service, and LPG cylinders.
The station also has an electronic payment service (WOQODe) for individuals and companies that offers many benefits, especially shortening the filling time, which reduces congestion at the station, controls customer purchases, and prevents the manipulation of invoices by drivers.
Woqod CEO, Saad Rashid al-Muhannadi, said, “We are pleased to open this station in the area of Al Egda as part of our strategy to provide essential services to different areas in the state of Qatar, especially places that are witnessing the closure of private stations due to maintenance work or the change of business, as well as the need to satisfy increasing demand in new populated areas or in delivering new infrastructure projects.”
Al Muhannadi said Woqod is currently engaged in eight projects under construction, “which are almost complete.” Part of them is expected to be open during the second half of 2017, while the other during the first half of 2018.
“In addition, seven projects are in tendering stages and five other projects are in the design stages. These projects are expected to be commissioned by the end 2018.
“Furthermore, we are coordinating with the Ministry of Municipality and Environment to allocate new sites in different areas of the state for Woqod new projects. Finally, Woqod is sincerely grateful to all the public and civil authorities that contributed to the completion of these projects,” al-Muhannadi reiterated.
