He informed that though IOML was the last entrant in retail fuel business and hence at a disadvantage as compared to its competitors for strategic sites but now bridging this gap with the support of local people, who are offering good sites to Indian Oil. This Filling Station at Montain Longue is one step in such direction. This 30th new service station is situated on the Terre Rouge Verdun Link, Motorway M3, Notre Dame, Montagne Longue. The link road has gained major traffic movement over the years and the ease of traveling congestion free has made the road a normal choice for many road users.  IOML is proud to be having the 1st Filling Station on the left side while going from North toward Ebène. The Filling Station intends to operate up to late night and will simultaneously be operating a retail shop.

The Deputy High Commissioner of India to Mauritius, H.E. Vimarsh Aryan, in his address, highlighted the warm support extended by the Government of Mauritius in materialising the project and expressed his strong certainty about the success of the filling station and IOML in the near future.
