To mark a retail presence in West Asia, Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) is expected to start its first retail outlet in Saudi Arabia within six months by setting up an equal joint venture company with Riyadh-based Al Jeri Group.

Based on the plans lined up by both companies, at least 200 retail outlets will be set up initially in Saudi Arabia. IOC’s foray will be significant at a time when Saudi’s national oil company Saudi Aramco is looking to enter into the Indian downstream market through a tie-up with Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries.
