“The authority is working to raise the number of fuel stations operating in Bahrain from about 48 to about 80 within the next three years,” said Mr Jassim Al-Shirawi, the Acting Executive Vice President of Production and Petroleum Industries at the National Oil and Gas Authority (NOGA).
He added that NOGA had a program to develop existing fuel stations to keep pace with developments to include rebuilding old stations.
Al-Shirawi expected that “mobile fuel stations” will be delivered and activated in the middle of this year. He noted that “mobile fuel stations” will bridge the shortage if stations are closed for maintenance.
Al-Shirawi’s statements came on the sidelines of the official opening of the Al-Sayah Refueling Station in Busaiteen which was patronized by the CEO of NOGA, Nasser Sultan Al-Suwaidi.
NOGA CEO assured that opening new fuel stations came in accordance with the NOGA’s strategy to increase the number of fuel stations in all governorates in order to develop and improve oil services in the Kingdom.
