ABOUT US

Like our name suggests it, we at Wookood (which is the Arabic word for fuel) strive to be the driving force behind each and every aspect of our customers’ active lives, delivering success and efficiency to your businesses and households while constantly enhancing safety measures and making sure we provide the best and finest quality products.

Our story began in 1973 when a single man, our late Founder Mr Samir Saade, started this long ongoing journey with a single tanker, armed with an iron will to work and achieve success.

The young Samir began delivering relentlessly gas oil and unleaded gasoline to local companies, houses, restaurants under Mobil Company (named Al Wardiyeh today), laying the foundation for a marvelous success story which will be carried out by no other than his own son Mr Georges Saade, Chairman of Wookood Petroleum.

After starting his own business under the name of “Samir Saade Transportation”, Samir was known by all for his credibility and strong commitment, and that he was one of the very few strong-willed heroes who delivered gas oil and gasoline for our people in the mountains, defying snowstorms & blizzards.

The unfortunate civil war atrocities didn’t stop Samir either from getting his job done. So he continued, despite all the life-threatening dangers, to deliver this vital substance to anywhere he was called to do so, on the Lebanese territories, from up north and all the way down south.

This legacy of hard work and achieving against all odds, was passed and installed almost inherently in his boy’s spirit and mind.

As Georges, aged 9 back then, accompanied his father in his business tours, riding alongside him the tankers, he learned bit by bit the ways of driving these colossal vehicles and discovered the keys to success in this tough but rewarding job.

And when he was old enough his father welcomed him as a co-worker and later as a worthy successor, so Mr Georges Saade began his career from the very bottom of the ladder, starting in the mid-nineties by acquiring a second tanker and founding in 2002 a new company called “Al-Wookood” which consisted of a small managing office in Haret Sakher-Jounieh and 3 employees who grew today to include almost more than 100 staff members, along with a bigger fleet of 12 tankers covering all the Lebanese regions.

The year 2005 was a turning point, “Al Wookood” became “Wookood Petroleum” and it founded its first gas station in Haret Sakher, while simultaneously working on bigger warehousing to provide products for wholesale that are under the supervision of the Ministry of Energy and Water.

The company's business network subsequently expanded to establish the second gas station on Harissa Highway in 2010, then Jbeil station followed in 2015 and after it came the Mansourieh branch in 2017.

Wookood Petroleum’s relatively fast growth and efficient management caught the eye of a Worldwide Giant of the oil and gas industry, namely “Total” who saw in collaborating with us a great opportunity of expansion in Lebanon. So Total signed two contracts of cooperation with Wookood Petroleum, the first in 2017 and the second in 2018, which consisted in selling its products in both Mansourieh and Harissa Highway stations while staying under the latter’s management.

Wookood now has more than 3000 loyal clients and numerous companies receiving our paramount services and supreme quality.

As we believe in continuity and strong family ties, the business is now in the safe hands of the chairman Mr Georges Saade & his dedicated and experimented managing team, notably the COO Mr Joseph Saade and the CFO Mr Rony Daou, together they form a strong-minded unit walking in the footsteps of those who paved the way for them.
