First Gulf-branded site in China opens

Gulf Oil has announced the opening of the first Gulf-branded service station in China.

Last update:

The first ever Gulf petrol station has opened in Guangzhou following the announcement of an ambitious expansion plan for China earlier this year. In May 2018, Gulf Oil International announced that it had reached an agreement to launch a national service station network in China. The first 25 sites are expected to open in 12 months while the brand is targeting 1200 stations over the next decade.

The first Gulf Station was unveiled in Guangzhou on Friday 7th September, with Tobias Tasche, Vice-President of Operations and Technology for Gulf Oil International, and Arthur Liu, General Manager of Gulf Oil China, attending, reports OilVoice.

“The opening of Gulf's first fuel station in China is a milestone for Gulf Oil China,” commented Arthur Liu, General Manager of Gulf Oil China. “This shows that Gulf is committed to further develop the business map of Gulf in China beyond its lubricant business. Gulf Petroleum plans to establish 1000-1200 branded fuel stations in China within the next 10 years.”

The new fuel retailing network is a joint venture between Gulf and Beibei Energy.
