SGS Maine Pointe’s Energy Consulting practice team focuses on delivering cost enhancements, performance improvements, risk reduction, and increased operational efficiency to global energy companies.
“My 22 years of consulting and senior-level industry experience in the global energy industry have led up to this exciting new position at SGS Maine Pointe,” said Gallagher. “I am looking forward to bringing my deep industry and supply chain experience to SGS Maine Pointe’s clients and working with them to achieve their most ambitious goals and deliver dramatic improvements. I am especially pleased to be able to leverage the expertise of Maine Pointe’s team of subject matter experts, who all bring years of practical experience to the table.”

His industry experience includes 20 years working for BP in a variety of senior leadership positions, including serving as supply chain manager for operations in Alaska, Iraq, and northern Africa. Over the course of his career, Sheehan has managed large teams in London, Tripoli, Iraq, and Buenos Aires, as well as multiple sites across the United States. He has taken on complex EPC projects, onshore and deepwater drilling rigs and well services, seismic processing agreements, and other services in support of oil & gas exploration and production.
“We are very pleased to have Sheehan on board, and are anxious to take full advantage of his deep level of insight and practical experience in the energy industry,” said Steve Ottley, Head of Chemicals & Energy at SGS Maine Pointe. “His insights into the industry’s challenges and opportunities – and his understanding of the global markets – we are looking forward to Sheehan helping to deliver outstanding results to our existing and future clients in this industry.”
