TransOcean was previously know as "Gulf Air Transport" and had for a brief time some scheduled service from the US to the UK, Italy, and the Azores. They flew DC-8s which were fuel guzzlers and were not reliable due to age and poor service.

Quoting swabrian (Reply 3):
When I worked in OAK during the 1970s, next to their former hangar, then used by AirCalifornia was still a cowling ring from one of their Stratocrusiers.
Transocean acquired most of BOAC's Stratocruisers in the late 1950s. They went out of business soon after.
