PG2, Inc. was founded by David L. Palmerton, Jr., a professional geologist with over 35 years’ experience in the environmental and energy industry.
Mr. Palmerton began his career in the oil and gas industry as a landman in New York and Pennsylvania. As the owner of P&S Drilling, Inc., he was responsible for developing conventional gas and shallow oil wells in the Appalachian Basin, and managed leasing, well drilling and completion, well tending, and pipeline construction.
After his tenure with P&S Drilling, Inc., Mr. Palmerton worked for two engineering firms as Chief Geologist and Vice President, managing groups of geologists and complex environmental projects.
In 2002 Mr. Palmerton founded the Palmerton Group to service the environmental and the oil and gas industry. The Palmerton Group retained Fortune 500 clients such as Shell Oil Company in environmental management, well plugging, and conventional oil and gas asset decommissioning. During Shell’s $4.7 billion-dollar acquisition of East Resources Inc. in the Marcellus Shale play, the Palmerton Group played a vital role in completing the environmental due diligence. In 2012 Mr. Palmerton successfully exited the Palmerton Group by selling the company to a large Boston-based engineering firm, GZA.
During his tenure at GZA as Sr. Vice President, Mr. Palmerton headed up GZA’s regional offices in Appalachian basin, and later was responsible for the acquisition of Laurel Oil and Gas Corp., where he managed business relationships with oil and gas operators for the contracting of drilling, completions, and storage field contractors until he started PG2, Inc. in 2017.
Mr. Palmerton earned his BS in Geoscience from State University College of New York and is a licensed Professional Geologist in PA, KY, NC, and SC, and a AIPG Certified Professional Geologist.
