Early 2011 TCO in conjunction with a major North Sea operator, initiated a qualification process to be registered as a Tubing Conveyed Perforation (TCP) vendor. The process took a total of three months and involved a complete review of the company's QHSE (Quality, Health, Safety and Environment) system amd procedures, personnel reviews, explosive permit reviews. This was further culminated in a full scale simulated TCP operation at the IRIS test facility in Stavanger.
Five months after completing the IRIS test, TCO became the first local supplier of perforating services after perforating two 50m zones for a major North Sea operator.
Additionallu, two months after the first TCP operation, the company was awarded the full Plug & Abandonment (P&A) TCP scope of work for a major North Sea operator.
