Buying Insurance Coverage in the Oil and Gas Industry
When you begin your search for the right oil and gas insurance for your business, what elements do you usually consider? The well-being of your employees? The different services in your industry and how they interact? The various departments in your business and their needs? These are all questions to consider that will impact your insurance choice. But let’s talk about the most important considerations you should have in mind during the process.
Appropriate Oil and Gas Insurance Risk Management
One of our other blogs talks about the most important insurance types to consider when planning out what your insurance covers. It’s essential to have a plan of action in mind to enhance your risk management resources and set up a roadmap of future goals. A few insurance types to heavily consider are:
Each of these insurance plans plays a vital role in your daily operations. Your workers engage in potentially dangerous work every day, so providing them coverage in case of an accident or emergency helps get them back on their feet after a disaster. General liability covers any harm done on your property and ensures you aren’t held responsible in the event of injury or equipment failure. Auto insurance helps you avoid financial problems if a vehicle in your fleet breaks down or needs repairs. Property insurance covers any buildings you own and enables you to avoid financial trouble when the buildings are damaged or broken into. Inland marine and control of well are unique to the oil and gas industry and help with pollution cleaning, well blowout and damages, and long-term operation investment coverages for drilling. Oil well insurance is a vital aspect of the industry that should be seriously considered when choosing your coverage options.
Getting the right insurance requires an expert insurance partner. Start your search off right with the help of InSource Insurance Group.
The agent you work with dictates how much of your oil and gas operations are covered. While you’re unlikely to find an agent with no experience in the industry, you may encounter some that have helped oil and gas companies in the past but have limited exposure to the industry as a whole. They may not understand that control of well is necessary to your business or brush off the need for liability insurance in favor of specialty insurance that their company offers. If a plan seems too good to be true, then you haven’t asked enough questions yet. Go over your options carefully and if they don’t seem like they are listening to your concerns, find a new agent to work with who understands your needs.
