About US

Technology and experience makes us different

Proprietary technology combined with 60 years of land service experience means we get the job done faster and more efficiently than our competition. Our team has expertise and strong relationships in every major U.S. drilling basin, and can provide wise counsel on solving land problems. 

A trusted partner

Client loyalty has been the foundation of our success for over 60 years. While technology helps us rise above, we understand that land is a relationship-driven business. We strive to go the extra mile for every client to cultivate lasting relationships. 

The longstanding partnerships we’ve created through the years are evidence of our commitment to provide unparalleled service.

We start by hiring the best talent possible and providing them the tools and technology needed to succeed. 

Our story

Wendell (Dude) Haley founded TCO in 1958 and built the business on honesty, hard work, determination and attention to detail. As he would often say, “If you do it right the first time, you’ll never have to do it again.” At TCO, we live by the example Dude set over his 50 year career in Land Services.
