Al Dhaheri added: "We have deployed 41 service stations to receive and process applications for e-Gas cards. This takes the total number of service stations catering to e-Gas card issue and applications to 139 across Abu Dhabi."
ADNOC teams review applications on a case-by-case basis, and processes them to ensure greater convenience to customers and enhanced efficiency of operations.
