Clients in the oil and gas industry have essential insurance needs, and there isn’t a one-size fits all package to cover all of the exposures that are present for those risks.
Oil and gas businesses need General Liability to protect them from claims involving bodily injury, property damage, and personal injury (like libel or slander), as well as Workers’ Compensation Insurance to cover workplace accidents and resulting injuries. Professional Liability Insurance protects against damages resulting from employees’ mistakes, and Commercial Property Insurance is necessary to cover your clients’ physical property – such as their office and its contents – from damaging events like fire and theft.
However, oil and gas companies also need Pollution & Environmental Liability Insurance because of increased environmental risks. If they accidentally caused an oil spill, or had another environmental incident, General Liability wouldn’t cover it. Pollution Liability is essential to cover the cleanup and related costs, including legal expenses.
