Examples or Scenarios

Our insured provided water management services for a client's operation when a produced water line was punctured causing a release. Beazley and its environmental consultant assisted in retention of vendors for remediation and testing and further assisted with communications with client, land owner and regulator to ensure quick and efficient cleanup and resolution.
