Founded and managed by a team of Experts from Oil & Gas, Construction and Infrastructure

Palm was founded in 2011 by Sean Kennelly FRICS FCIArb LLM with the objective to provide our clients with a robust solution to fill any knowledge gaps in their own team whilst utilising their vast technical and operational know how to Identify, Prevent, Mitigate, Manage and Close out all risks as a team in collaboration with all key stakeholders. 


Our team of industry experts have over 20 years experience each in Oil and Gas, Construction and Infrastructure industries, particularly in managing and providing projects and contractual / commercial support to the sales, proposals, and projects teams in an international environment from feasibility studies through to EPC Turnkey projects.
