Our Mission

It is our mission to provide to the oil and gas producers of the Appalachian Basin, highly trained and knowledgeable, experienced personnel, modern and safe equipment and a commitment to excellence in service.

Company History Profile

Timco, Inc. has been actively engaged in the oil and gas well service industry since 1978, filling the needs for specialized well chemicals and the trained personnel to deliver and install the chemicals in the well. Timco further expanded services to swab rigs, service rigs and power swivel in 1980, hydrocarbon services in 1985 and wire line services in 1991. The same year Timco expanded sales to the international market by selling used cable tool drilling rigs and tools, worldwide.

Today we speclize in our Cased Hole Wireline Services, Hydrocarbon and Chemical Services and Tools for Cable Rigs.

We are the Eastern Distrubitor for the Owens Casing Patch Systems

Tubing Casing Patch Technologies

The Owen X-SPANŽ Tubing/Casing patch System provides a proven, durable and dependable seal over perforations, splits, corrosions or leaks in all types of tubulars. This system can be deployed on electric wireline or tubing and used on conventional, horizontal, monobore, multi-lateral, slim hole or geothermal well bores. The Owen X-SPANŽ System has proven to be an economical and reliable solution for a broad range of applications, including shutting off unwanted water influx, zonal protection for frac-through applications, repairing tubular leaks from pin holes to collar leaks, repairing corroded or eroded tubing or casing as well as isolating frac ports and auxiliary tools in horizontal wells.

The large bore assures easy passage of service tools including bridge plugs, drop balls, seal bore assemblies, logging tools and perforating systems. The minimal surface equipment required for deploying the patch and rig less intervention results in tremendous savings for the operator. The metal-to-metal X-SPANŽ seal is proven technology engineered for high temperature applications while yielding the highest burst and collapse pressure ratings in the industry. The X-SPANŽ casing patch can be deployed to protect 300-ft (91-m) sections of tubing or casing on a single trip, with multi-trip stackable patches available to span longer intervals. X-SPANŽ Systems can be designed using premium alloys for extreme well bore environments and custom sized for most tubing restrictions.

The full range of Owen's X-SPANŽ Technology include:

  • The standard X-SPANŽ System consists of three basic components; a top metal to metal sealing element, a tubular extension and a bottom metal to metal sealing element. The system is modular and patch lengths can be adjusted at the field. It is the most reliable patch on the market and the pressure integrity is not reduced due to casing conditions.
  • The GTX-SPANŽ adds premium sealing elements with each element containing two elastomer seals that have enabled us to provide the industry with the first effective gas tight patch.
  • The BPX-SPANŽ is an elastomer free bridge plug designed for hostile well conditions that can cause the elastomers to swell on standard bridge plugs while running in the hole. The BPX-SPANŽ uses our proven metal to metal seal technology to create a mechanical seal and anchor to the casing wall. The BPX-SPANŽ can include a ceramic knock out sub, pump out sub or burst disc or be converted as a hanger system for velocity strings or include a tailpipe assembly with profile subs.
  • The new multi-trip stackable STX-SPANŽ version can be utilized to isolate longer intervals and deployment can be performed on flowing or static wells. The STX-SPANŽ System is also ideal for wells with limited rig up height and on wells that have severe dog legs where only short sections will pass. Each section seals to the previous one via a ratchet latch stinger and seal bore receptacle.
  • The SST-SPANŽ is an elastomer free suspension or hanger tool that can be used to hang tubing or velocity strings in a well. The SST-SPANŽ uses our proven metal to metal seal technology to create a mechanical seal and anchor to the casing wall. The SST-SPANŽ is well suited for hostile environments including high C02 and high temperature applications.

All Owen X-SPANŽ Systems are easily deployed using a range of multi-stage explosive or hydraulic setting tools. The explosive setting tools can be initiated electrically, on e-line or slick line using a variety of compatible firing systems. For your conventional tubing or coil tubing deployment requirements, we have several sizes of hydraulically operated setting tools available. X-SPANŽ Systems are easily removable by just milling off the sealing elements. The reliability and quality of the X-SPANŽ System has been proven many times over the past several years with over 2900 installations completed with a success rate of 98% when setting depth has been achieved.


The Owen Oil Tools Tubing/Casing Patch uses multi-dimensional metal-to-metal X-SPANŽ Technology to provide a permanent seal over perforations and to stop leaks of all types.


OWENS patches can be run in any type of well including horizontal, multilateral, slim hole, monobore, or geothermal. X-SPANŽ Technology is economical and reliable when used for water shut off or zonal isolation applications. The large bore assures easy passage of Magna Range bridge plugs, logging tools, coiled tubing tools, and perforating systems.
