KGP’s main strength is the expertise its people, including our partners, consultants and researchers bring to our multi-client and single client projects. The small central team primarily manages the multi-client services, but our global eco-system allows us to access extensive additional knowledge, expertise and skills related to our core markets, to deliver client projects.
