Energy Construction Risks

The delivery models and operations of construction firms are evolving to meet changing client and project demands. While these changes enable energy firms to pursue new opportunities, change can bring exposure to new risks.

Energy construction projects, both onshore and offshore, are facing a complex network of evolving risks. Expansion of projects into new geographies and emerging markets introduces new challenges such as geopolitical risks, kidnap and ransom, and terrorism, in addition to other threats such as volatile weather and natural catastrophes, in addition to:

  • Contractor all risks
  • Erection all risks
  • Delay in start-up & supply chain failure
  • Third party, contractual & employers liability
  • Project finance
  • Professional indemnity
  • Performance and commercial risk

Exposure to these risks demands innovative solutions with a specialised focus on the energy industry.

Building a sustainable future: risk management

An understanding of the potential risks during design, construction and operations phases is vital to developing the ideal risk management approach. Identifying all possible risks related to the project is essential, but then modelling the likelihood and impact of each risk to deploy solutions effectively, is critical for ongoing resilience.

Project solutions

Project solutions consolidate insurance coverage on large projects into one program negotiated, purchased and managed by a single sponsor such as the owner (owner-controlled insurance program) or the contractor (contractor-controlled insurance program), targeting greater control over coverage construction costs while enhancing overall project safety and performance.

Many project operators and/or contractors will benefit from a broker that has extensive capabilities to deliver construction project wrap-ups through a team of professionals focusing solely on designing and implementing successful wrap-up programs to deliver superior protection, risk control, claims administration and cost savings, all contributing to successful project delivery.
