Oil and gas industry


Oil & Gas Capabilities

Running an oil and gas business is no easy task. Overseeing rig equipment and tools, conducting well evaluations, managing crew and complying with ever-evolving government regulations are rife with potential problems. While you need to know that you're protected in case something does go wrong, troubleshooting any of the numerous events that could threaten your operation is likely your first priority.

At Travelers, we understand that, and can help lift insurance worry from your shoulders. Using our in-depth knowledge of the oil and gas industry and understanding of your commitment to exceptional practices, we've developed a portfolio of products tailored to your unique needs. They're distributed through retail agents and selected surplus lines wholesale brokers who specialize in this business.

Through this distribution network, we offer:

Additional coverages that are available through other Travelers business units include directors and officers liability, employment practices liability, fiduciary liability, crime, ocean marine and international.
