Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas is committed to the countries in which it operates in, placing great emphasis on providing wealth and support to local communities and people.
The Company is committed to the sustainability and growth of Namibia and Guyana. Eco takes a proactive approach to embed its everyday activities into the culture and economy of these countries, noting that its activities effect the jurisdictions it operates in.
Eco has demonstrated its strong community support within Guyana and Namibia since its inception into these jurisdictions, continually proving the importance of fostering social and economic development in addition to building a local in-country corporate presence.
Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas opened its Namibian headquarters in Windhoek in 2012 with a view to incorporating a local Namibian work force. Today, Eco’s local work force is a key driving factor for its accounting and legal departments in the country.
Eco also holds a firm position in Guyana where it appointed, upon inception, a local country manager to manage its country-wide interests and relationships with the government. The company also uses various local service providers to help assist with its Guyana operations. Although the company is not the operator of the Orinduik Block, Eco shares its local headquarters with Tullow Oil.
Funding our Future
Eco (Atlantic) Oil & Gas is dedicated to fostering education and local economic empowerment for youth and young business people by providing a safe and productive educational environment and giving the tools and resources needed to enhance learning and SME.
Eco firmly believes that today’s youth is tomorrow’s future, and by providing the younger generation with the valuable skills and education they need to succeed, the whole country will benefit from the constant growth and prosperity.
In Guyana, Eco has made a great effort to support various SME initiatives and local social organisations throughout the country.
This includes signing a three-year deal to sponsor the Annual Guyana High Commission UK Awards (“GHCUK Awards”) as the Principal Partner for 2018 through to 2020. The GHCUK is an annual event which was established to celebrate the achievements of Guyanese and individuals of Guyanese descent in the United Kingdom and to inspire the next generation of proud Guyanese to succeed around the globe.
