Two new petrol stations to open in Qatar this month
For all those bemoaning the closure of petrol pumps around the country, there is some glad news. Woqod has announced that they will open up two new petrol stations in Qatar this month.
The two new stations will be located in old Ghanam and Al Thamid areas. A third petrol station, which will be situated near the Hamad International Airport, will be opened later.
In addition to this, four new mobile petrol stations will also start to function this month. They will be located in Al Saad, Rawdat Al Khail, Qatar University and Al Gharrafa.
The Peninsula reported that three new fuel stations will open next month, in Meshairib on Al Rayyan road, Al Masham (north of Al Wukair) and old Al Rayyan area.
Eight more fuel stations are expected to become operational by December. Once all the stations come online, the heavy rush currently being experienced at fuel stations is expected to ease considerably.
A number of privately owned petrol stations had closed down in recent months, leading to overcrowding at other outlets.
