Energy Insurance


Businesses in the energy sector operate in the riskiest environment imaginable. Energy companies depend on complex infrastructure, often sited in inhospitable locations and must run safely around the clock. Today’s energy companies are acutely aware of their duty of care to the environment, their customers and their investors. From a property, liability and business continuity point of view, reliable and responsive insurance cover is essential. Chubb Global Markets is a leading insurer of upstream and downstream energy.
