By: Aynur Jafarova

Azerbaijan’s state energy company SOCAR has opened a new gas filling station in Romanian Iasi city, which is located in the country’s northeast part on the border with Moldova.

“The gas filling station was put into operation on May 29,” SOCAR said.

This is the second gas filling station in Iasi operating under the SOCAR brand name. With the station commission, the total number of SOCAR’s gas filling stations in Romania reached 28.

Azerbaijan’s energy giant SOCAR entered the Romanian market by buying local filling stations from Romtranspetrol and re-branding them in 2011. Becoming one of the most important players in fuel distribution in northeast Romania, SOCAR plans to bring the number of its gas stations in Romania to 100.

Since the beginning of 2014, SOCAR has opened eight new stations in Romania.

SOCAR also intends to increase the number of its gas filling station in neighboring Georgia.

A source in SOCAR told Trend Agency that the number of gas filling stations operating in Georgia under the SOCAR brand name will exceed 120 by the end of 2014.

Currently, the total number of gas filling stations of SOCAR in Georgia amounts to 111.

SOCAR, which is keen on expanding operations in the retail oil products market abroad, is involved in exploring oil and gas fields, producing, processing, and transporting oil, gas, and gas condensate, marketing petroleum and petrochemical products in the domestic and international markets, and supplying natural gas to industry and the public in Azerbaijan.

Currently, the company owns gas stations in Azerbaijan, Switzerland, Georgia and Ukraine. It has representative offices in Georgia, Turkey, Romania, Austria, Switzerland, Kazakhstan, Britain, Iran, Germany and Ukraine, and trading companies in Switzerland, Singapore, Vietnam, Nigeria, and other countries.
