Upstream & Offshore Energy

The Upstream & Offshore Energy account has been a core business line within Torus since the company’s inception in 2008.  


The expansion of world-wide explorations has increased the need for insurance in offshore energy and the complexity and volatility of this sector requires specialist and experienced underwriters who truly understand the client’s business. We use our market and industry experience to fully assess the risks we write, enabling us to provide a flexible approach  and ‘out of the box’ solutions when required.


Our Approach: The combined knowledge of our underwriting, engineering, actuarial and claims teams enable us to understand and manage the risks faced by our clients in the upstream energy sector.  We understand the importance of the relationships with our clients and their brokers and provide transparent risk analysis as the basis for shared knowledge to promote our partnership approach.

  • Independent oil & gas companies
