Azerbaijan's state energy company SOCAR has commissioned a new gas-filling station under its own brand in Ukraine's Odessa region, SOCAR said on July 9.
This is the ninth gas-filling station in Odessa which is included in the structure of SOCAR Ukraine.
The fueling station was put into operation by the Transoil company.
The new fueling station will provide additional services to cars and trucks as it is located on a circular road with intensive traffic. Customers will also be able to use free online services there.
Furthermore, all conditions for rest and lodging for the night have been created for drivers of heavy duty trucks.
Fuel filling columns which allow to simultaneously fill ten vehicles have been installed at the filling station.
Customers are offered high quality gasoline and diesel fuel of the Euro 4 and Euro 5 standards produced by oil refineries of Lithuania, Poland and Belarus.
The variety of oil products includes A-92 and A-95 gasoline as well as Nano-95 and nano diesel.
Thus, the number of gas-filling stations operating under the SOCAR brand in Ukraine has risen to 34.
