Oil & Gas

A comprehensive insurance solution for upstream & land-based oil and gas operators, non-operators, and service contractors.
Oil & Gas

Amwins Program Underwriters' Oil & Gas program provides comprehensive insurance solutions for upstream & land-based oil and gas operators, non-operators, and service contractors across the U.S. and Canada.  The program offers stand-alone or package coverages on an admitted or non-admitted basis.

Regaining control of a well can be an expensive process, including pollution, clean-up, re-drilling, and restoring the well back to operation. That's why the Oil & Gas program developed unique coverage for operator’s extra expense (control of well) to ensure your upstream oil and gas accounts are properly covered.
