SOCAR opens 200th petrol station in Switzerland


SOCAR Energy Switzerland has opened its 200th petrol station, according to the company.

“With the opening of SOCAR Stalvedro (198.), SOCAR Meiringen (199.), and SOCAR Innertkirchen (200.), we have reached a big milestone on the way to a dense network of petrol stations,” said the company.

On 1 July 2012, SOCAR acquired all of ExxonMobil’s shares in Esso Schweiz GmbH.
The first petrol station with the new SOCAR branding in the Azerbaijani national colors opened in Zurich in September 2012. That was also the beginning of the gradual replacement of the Esso brand by SOCAR.
