Following the ease of lockdown and movement restrictions in the UAE, the company has experienced a recovery of fuel volumes. In July 2020, ADNOC Distribution’s retail fuel volumes recovered to 90% of volumes for the same period last year.

ADNOC Distribution continues with its operations and, in line with the UAE’s efforts to reopen the economy, has successfully and safely relaunched services during Q2, including car wash and oil change, while ensuring stringent health and safety measures are implemented.

Another development part of the business is to strive for a superior shopping experience to its customers through its c-store revitalization program, with 11 c-stores revitalized in H1 2020, 10 of which were successfully refurbished in Q2 2020. The Company remains on track to refurbish 40-50 C-stores in 2020.
