Abu Dhabi-UAE: 06 February, 2017: ADNOC Distribution today announced that its new Al Rgayyb service station, located on the Ghayathi-Ruwais Road in the Western Region of Abu Dhabi, had started operations. The opening comes as part of the company's ongoing expansion strategy that aims to meet the growing demand for its high-quality products and services in various parts of the UAE.
Operating round-the-clock, the service station features six islands with 10 dispensers offering E-Plus 91, Special 95, and Super 98 fuels, as well as Green Diesel. Work is underway to equip the station with natural gas for vehicles (NGV) facilities.
Speaking on the occasion of the launch, Saeed Mubarak Al Rashdi, Acting Chief Executive Officer of ADNOC Distribution, said: 'The opening of Al Rgayyb service station reiterates our commitment to expanding our geographical footprint across the UAE in line with the country's rapid economic growth. Furthermore, the move aligns with our ambitious plans to modernise our service station network to cater to the specific requirements of each region.”
The station offers a wide range of modern facilities and integrated services including oil change, an LPG cylinder depot, a mosque, an ADNOC Oasis convenience store, a bakery, and an automatic payment machine for convenient payment of utility bills. In the future, it will also include an ATM machine and a fast food outlet.
In compliance with ADNOC Distribution's quality standards, Al Rgayyb service station is fitted out with state-of-the-art HSE equipment, creating a safer and healthier environment for employees and customers as well as residents of the surrounding areas. It also features a CCTV system, covering every square metre of the premises, and sensors monitoring the length of time vehicles spend parked in the slots designated for customers.
The facility has a direct electronic link to the General Directorate of Civil Defense Abu Dhabi to minimise the response time in emergencies. Furthermore, the station uses a vapour recovery system that extracts fumes discharged from fuel tankers to protect the environment.
The latest addition takes the total number of ADNOC Distribution service stations in the emirate of Abu Dhabi to 169, including 93 service stations in Abu Dhabi city and its suburban areas, 35 stations in the Western Region and 41 stations in Al Ain. In addition, the company has recently launched two new stations as part of its ADNOC Xpress concept.
