Energy & Mining and Power

Global risk is increasing and becoming ever more complex, particularly within the energy sector. From upstream to downstream operations, the industry faces increased risk from a long list of sources including more remote exploration, deeper wells and water, greater civil liability, regulatory and political risks. These risks are amplified as companies face higher capital expenditures to complete new projects while dealing with the volatility in the commodity and financial markets.

Recent losses in the sector have highlighted the need for effective insurance and risk management programs. The last thing that an organization needs in the middle of a crisis is to find out that the insurance they were relying upon is anything other than completely effective.
