Community Investment

TCO invests in the community of Atyrau Oblast through several different approaches. Two of our signature community investment programs are Egilik Social Infrastructures Program and the TCO Community Investment Program.

Egilik Social Infrastructures Program

In 1998 TCO established the Egilik (Kazakh for benefit) program. Egilik began with a $4 million budget, growing steadily until 2003 when the budget increased to $8 million for three years and then to $12 million for another three year period. For 2009 through 2012 the budget was $20 million per year.

Community Investment Program

TCO budgets approximately $1 million annually for Community Investment Program (CIP). TCO has recently updated the CIP to more closely align with the needs and goals of our community and business.
