Record profits at Essar
Essar Oil UK, which recently started supplying branded fuel to dealers, has reported its highest ever profit. For the year to the end of March, pre-tax profit was $244m compared with $70m the previous year. Gross revenues for the 12 months were $4,992m, a 34% drop from the $7,615m reported in the previous year, primarily due to the lower crude oil price which fell 44% year-on-year.

BP and Costcutter have both introduced Android Pay on their forecourts. Android Pay is now available at all BP stations and forecourts across the UK, and BP claims to be the only oil major in the UK to offer this service at its filling stations. More than 1,000 Android and Apple Pay enabled devices have been installed across Costcutter Supermarkets Group, meaning Android Pay is now available at all Costcutter, Mace, Supershop, Kwiksave and Simply Fresh stores which operate Costcutter Supermarkets Group’s CPoS system.
