Accra, Ghana, ZEN Petroleum has announced the opening of three new service stations, bringing its total number of stations to 35.

Located at Korle Gonno-Accra, Sekondi Ekuase, and Wa, the new stations expand ZEN’s presence in the Greater Accra and Western Regions, and mark the Oil Marketing Company’s (OMC) entry into the Upper West Region.

Having maintained its position as the leading supplier of fuels to Ghana’s mining industry, ZEN has seen a recent expansion of its Retail presence, with a target of 10 stations set to be opened in 2021.

The opening of the new service stations indicates ZEN’s consistent growth in the petroleum downstream sector, having seen 100% Retail growth in 2020, with 342 million litres of fuel delivered in the past year and approximately 3 million litres of lubricants delivered per month.

ZEN’s growth has also been marked by its position as a major employer in the downstream sector, having recently increased its staff strength to nearly 950 in recent months.

In a statement on the opening of the new station, ZEN’s Retail Director Prince Awuley said, “We continue to prioritise safety, fuel quality and accessibility by ensuring our stations are designed, constructed and operating well above industry standards.

Our latest stations are therefore equipped with double wall tanks, leak detection, overfill prevention, flame arrestors, oil separators and other key safety features, while providing priority access and parking for persons with disabilities.”

He added, “We are excited to reach all corners of Ghana with our high-quality fuels and lubricants at the most affordable prices, and the world-class service delivery our customers have come to associate with the ZEN brand.”

Available to customers at the new stations are checks for leaks, water, density and levels of fuel dispensed using10 litre Test Measure Cans, in addition to convenient mobile payment systems, a lube bay, a convenient shopping option andrestrooms.

In addition to its recent expansion efforts, ZEN has also been heavily involved in community-based philanthropic projects.
