Keeping your business covered

Build your custom oil and gas engineer insurance policy. We offer:

  • Professional indemnity insurance

    Working in the oil and gas industry isn’t like any other profession, so your professional indemnity insurance policy won’t be the same, either. Some contractors won’t let you take on work without the right level of professional indemnity insurance in place. This will cover you for a range of incidents which may arise throughout the duration of your contract as an oil or gas professional. With our online quote engine, you can now get your insurance coverage in just a few clicks, meaning you’re able to take on new contracts as soon as you’re covered.

  • Business Combined Insurance

    To simplify the gas contractor insurance process and make it easier for contractors to get the coverage they need, we’ve built a business combined insurance policy that is ideal for oil and gas workers. This policy includes public liability insurance, office contents insurance, employer’s liability insurance and directors and officers insurance. This level of insurance policy not only protects you and your business, but it also shows your clients and customers that you take the risks associated with your work seriously.

  • Tax Enquiry & Legal Expenses Insurance & Contract Review

    Protects your business against the costs of legal action taken against you, including contract disputes, debt recovery, tax, VAT and HMRC investigations. £100,000 cover for just £75 a year.
    IR35 Contract Reviews available for only £60.00 per contract when you purchase this policy.

  • Travel Insurance

    It’s a fact of life for oil and gas workers that travel is an essential part of your work. With our annual oil and gas engineer travel insurance, you and your family will be covered on unlimited worldwide trips whether you are travelling for work or a holiday. Get in touch today to find out how we can build the right travel insurance coverage for you, whether you work onshore or offshore in the oil and gas industry.

  • Portable Equipment Cover

    This insurance will cover your Portable Electronic Equipment when working away from your own premises or based at a client's site. The insurance will cover accidental physical loss (including theft) or damage. You can choose whether or not this cover is within the UK, Europe or Worldwide.

    Examples of equipment covered:
    Blackberries or other PDA's
    Digital cameras
    Hardware and tools
    Mobile phones
    Video cameras and equipment
    Level of cover

    The policy provides cover for electronic portable equipment from £1,000 up to a limit of £5,000 and is subject to an excess of £100 which means that you will pay the first £100 of any claim. In respect of mobile phones the policy excess increases to £250 each and every claim.

    If you require higher levels of cover than the drop down fields allow, please contact us on 0333 321 1403. We can arrange for the higher sums insured but this is something we need to discuss over the phone primarily.
