British Petroleum Celebrates the Opening of its First Service Station in the city

By Karla Ortiz

Thanks to the liberation of the gas station market in México brought by the Energy Reform, foreign companies began to arrive in the country. This Friday, November 24, British Petroleum arrived in our city. BP has been operating in Mexico for more than 50 years, supplying and commercializing lubricants. The British company, with more than 100 years of experience in the gas station industry and presence in more than 80 countries, chose San Miguel de Allende for the opening of one more of its 89 stations all around the republic, located on Boulevard de la Conspiración, in front of the space where the Tuesday Market is located.

The opening ceremony was attended by Zonia Torres, Director of Economic Development and Tourism, representing Mayor Ricardo Villareal; Alejandro de la Rosa, General Manager of Estaciones RUTA; and Michael Frischbier, Downstream Operations Director of BP México; as well as Dolores Ramírez, Station Manager; Antonieta Jiménez, Zone Supervisor; Patricia Miranda, Operations Area Leader; and all the men and woman who will be in charge of providing the service with the philosophy of British Petroleum. With this inauguration, they achieved a presence in 11 entities in the country, among them the State of Mexico, CDMX, Puebla, Guadalajara, and Baja California.

“The entrance of this new company benefits both San Miguel residents and tourists. San Miguel is a highway destination, which means that people arriving by plane don’t arrive directly in the city. They have to travel at least 100 kilometers to arrive and that represents gasoline expenses,” said Zonia Torres. The company plans to inaugurate seven more service stations in the short and long term, planning to consolidate itself with an important participation in the local market.

“This opening is a sign of our deep commitment to the country. Today we have 89 service stations nationwide and continue to grow every day,” said BP’s Michael Frischbier.
