In 2004, in collaboration with Statoil, TCO installed the first ever Tubing Disappearing Plugs (TDPs) in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. Later that year TCO was awarded the ONS innovation award. In 2006 TCO exported their TDP technology for the first time to clients outside of Norway. Since then the company has expanded to become a global supplier of Well Completion Technologies.

Products and Services
- Next Generation Barrier Plugs
TCO’s TDP barrier plugs, constructed using laminated glass, bring a new level of reliability and efficiency to well completion and intervention operations. The TDP series barrier plugs are ISO 14310 V0 /AP1 11D1 certified and can be configured to be opened remotely or via an intervention.
- Multi Cycle Valve (MCV)
The MCV allows circulation from annulus to tubing and tubing to annulus. It uses a remotely activated sleeve (no setting ball or dart required) that shifts position to close the sleeve permanently. Pump rates from annulus to tubing can be up to 8 barrels per minute. Pumping from tubing to annulus at rates above 2 barrels per minute activates a temporary sealing mechanism. By further increasing the pressure in the tubing a permanently closing sleeve will be activated and locked into place.
- Tubing Conveyed Perforating (TCP)
In 2011, TCO became the first ever local provider of Tubing Conveyed Perforating (TCP) equipment and services in Norway when they successfully perform two operations for a major operator. Today TCO can provide HPHT TCP, remote gun drop systems, hydraulic or electronic firing heads, oriented perforating systems and pipe recovery systems.
