Under the patronage of His Highness Sayyid Faisal bin Turki Al Said, Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Oman Oil Marketing Company (OOMCO) has commenced the operation of its fifth service station in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Located in the Eastern Province, Dammam, the one-stop-shop service station caters to customers living in the metropolitan area. The service station features an exciting range of on-the-go shopping, and food and beverage offerings, in addition to essential automotive services that go “beyond the pump”.
The latest addition is part of OOMCO’s strategy to accelerate its expansion in KSA as well as its global expansion footprint. The company will also add another five service stations around Jeddah to its portfolio in the Kingdom this year. The facility comprises a car care center, a convenience store, cafeteria, a drive through coffee shop and ATM. Customers can further take advantage of the quick car services provided including oil change, car wash and tire services.
“With customers being the key players of our success, the launch of our fourth service station in Saudi Arabia demonstrates our unwavering dedication to offer convenient and flexible shopping experiences, while catering to our customers’ refueling and car care needs,” said Ali Muqaibal, General Manager – International Relations at Oman Oil Marketing Company. “In addition to the five operating stations, we secured 11 sites that are at different stages of development. We opened our first mega station in Dammam in 2019, and we continue to harness more opportunities to strengthen our service offerings in the Saudi market while always putting customer-centricity first-and-foremost.”
Earlier this month, Oman and Saudi Arabia have signed 13 memoranda of understanding for joint projects worth $30 billion within the economic sector. The agreement continues to build on the strong bilateral relations between the two countries which reached $840 million in 2020. Moreover, with the objective of maximizing trade cooperation, the road and border port linking Oman and Saudi Arabia was recently opened and is expected to provide easy access and reduced time and cost of imports and exports.
With its forward-thinking strategy, OOMCO strives to transform the industry with the introduction of innovative products and services across all aspects of the business, both locally and internationally. Building a brand that provides much more than only fuel, OOMCO is creating an unparallel chain of service hubs that provide access to integrated offerings including quality shopping, food products and services.
