Founded in 1958 by Wendell (Dude) Haley, Transcontinent Oil (TCO) was built on a reputation of honesty, hard work, determination and attention to detail derived from our decades of combined experience as field landmen. Because of this, TCO has grown to become Denver’s oldest and most respected land services company.

Our highly experienced project managers and support staff allow us to oversee land title, due-diligence, abstracting, lease and right-of-way projects, of any size and complexity. Our dedication to our clients extends beyond just getting the job done; we believe in cultivating lasting relationships. The longstanding partnerships we’ve created through the years are evidence of our commitment to provide unparalleled service.

From the beginning, we have made it our mission to treat our employees with the utmost respect. Their loyalty has enabled us to deliver what we feel is the highest quality land service in the industry. We hire the best talent and provide an environment for them to succeed and positively shape the industry. Our expert team allows us to deliver exceptional results to our clients.



With fifty plus years of land service experience, we are quicker, more knowledgeable and more efficient than most in our industry.  Not only do we utilize the best technology on behalf of our clients, we invent and program our own, too
