The professionals at PG2 have served fortune 500 companies, energy, oil, and natural gas industries for many years with a wide range of projects. From regulation and litigation concerns to field services, our knowledgeable staff are fully prepared to offer their consultation expertise to your business.

Energy Industry

Our founder, Mr. David Palmerton, Jr. has a long association with the energy industry, including the upstream oil and gas segments that employ pipelines. Since the early 1980’s, he has been associated with the oil and gas industry operating in the Appalachian Basin. Our founder managed the development of oil and gas wells for his family-owned-business, acquiring industry knowledge that he now applies to his work with our organization. His knowledge includes a total understanding of the following:

• Lease Management
• Drilling Contractors
• Gas Sales
• Service Companies
• Drilling Program AFE
• Logging Oversight
• Cementing
• Hydrofracturing
• Pipeline Construction

Oil Field Services

As the former Vice President of Laurel Oil and Gas Corp., Mr. Palmerton directed dozens of independent consultants on drilling, completions, and storage field workover, as well as plugging for oil and gas companies in the Appalachian Basin. As President of the Palmerton Group, LLC., and later as Senior Vice President at GZA GeoEnvironmental, Inc., Mr. Palmerton directed and managed the decommissioning of hundreds of miles of oil pipeline plus the plugging and closure of over 1,000 conventional wells in the Appalachian Basin.

Manufactured Gas Plant

For a confidential client that was contemplating litigation before New York State and Federal courts concerning investigation and remediation for MGP facilities,  site environmental data was reviewed and analyzed  to determine the timing and nature of contaminant releases into the environment.

Snubbing Work and Rig
Third party evaluation of RI was made to determine the adequacy of data for developing remedial approaches and cost estimates to be used in insurance recovery claims. A conceptual model was used to analyze exposure pathways for each site as well as the timing of contamination releases from the site to groundwater, surface water, and contiguous properties. Finally, strategic planning a was performed in preparation for insurance recovery and litigation.

Litigation Support

Litigation research and analysis was performed over three years in support two firms representing two Fortune 100 companies in a New York Second Circuit case. In-depth research was performed at the National Archives and Department of Defense Facilities and  GIS mapping was prepared for thousands of data points used in the case.


Regulatory Negotiations

Negotiation and management services were provided for sediment remediation and a feasibility study of a wood treating site adjacent to Hersey River, Michigan. Negotiations on behalf of the client developed interim remedies that could be implemented on the site.

For another portion of the river, successful negotiations were performed with the Michigan DEQ regarding sediment management, as well as dam removal and reconstruction. Management of the investigation, remedial measures, and the feasibility study addressed sediments containing PAHs in the Hersey River. The project work included investigation of groundwater, DNAPL, sediment, and biota analysis.


On behalf of a PRP group, technical and cost allocation consulting was performed for a United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) site investigation, including Remedial Investigation/Feasibility Study (RI/FS), remedy selection, and Record of Decision. Throughout this project, the team interacted with state and federal regulatory agencies to develop additional scopes of work while managing cost tracking to maximize efficiency. The scope of work with the PRP group included all the following:

• Historic Site and Property Specific Research
• Identifying Prior Investigative Work Within the Subsite and the Watershed
• Collecting and Creating a Database Of Historic and Current Sampling Data
• Evaluating the Potential Nexus Of Others To the Site
• Developing and Managing a File Transfer Protocol (FTP) Site for Over 1,000 Documents
• Evaluating the Ongoing Potential To Contribute Contaminants Of Concern To the Superfund Site
• Assisting the PRP Group With Technical Defenses To Liability
