Oil & Gas Industry Insurance

We provide insurance for onshore oil & gas contractors working both in downhole and surface processes, as well as those providing ancillary services, equipment rental, suppliers, and operators.

Focused on energy

Businesses operating in the oil & gas industry face risks unlike those in any other industry, from operational mishaps to contract non-compliance. That’s why Skyward Specialty formed a division to bring our specific energy expertise to this segment. We know our customers and distribution partners need tailored coverages to protect against uncertainties common to this industry, such as sudden and accidental pollution and underground resources and equipment. We help shift these risks by delivering a full range of insurance lines, including general liability, workers' compensation, property coverage, commercial auto, excess liability, inland marine, and more.
