    Head of Energy

    We provide comprehensive and competitive cover to clients involved in all aspects of the energy value chain and are a prominent leader of energy business in the London market.

    We define energy as "energy supply, generation and delivery." We insure clients in the following industry segments: upstream and midstream. We are also involved in emerging areas of risk such as renewable energy production. For integrated companies operating in any of these segments, we can offer a mix of relevant coverages to meet the requirements of each client.

    Our energy clients range from small, regionally focused independent oil and gas companies through to larger, international, integrated energy companies. Today we insure over 30% of the top 200 oil and gas companies in the world and lead 40% of our portfolio.

    Our approach

    We are selective in our approach, favouring operators and firms who follow a high level of safety standards.  In this way, we can offer the broadest cover and most competitive terms while maintaining our strong reputation in the market.  Historically, our loss market ratios have always outperformed the Lloyd's market average.

    Extensive coverage

    We cater for most exposures encountered by energy companies including property physical damage and business interruption, expense coverage such as control of well and redrill costs, construction and abandonment risks, legal and contractual liabilities including general liabilities, employers liabilities, seepage and pollution, removal of debris expenses, etc.  All subject to the terms and conditions of the actual policy.

    To offer a quotation, we require details of the scope and nature of the assured's activities, the coverage required and a claims record.

    our energy team, Beazley also insures energy companies for D&O, political risks, terrorism, accident and health, and construction and engineering exposures.
