There are a lot of opportunities out there for an oilfield consultant, especially if you have a diverse skillset that allows for a range of appointments as your clients’ needs change. When that happens, you need insurance that understands your industry and responds to your pivot. The best way to do that is to find a company that focuses on oilfield operations because they will know how to interview you about your business in a way that tells them all the coverage options you will need. Without the kind of specialized knowledge that a company who prioritizes the oil industry, there’s a chance your coverage language will miss important circumstances where you need to be protected.
Get Peace of Mind in the Lab and the Field
The petroleum industry has unique liabilities, and as a consultant, your work gives you a share in the liability when you participate in a project.
That means you need insurance capable of doing all of the following:
Isolating your liability from that of your client companies
Providing for your staff at any worksite
Covering third-party damage and injury where appropriate
Including the proper equipment, vehicle, and other commercial coverage options
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have coverage that’s a perfect fit when you set out as an oilfield consultant. General business liability insurance isn’t designed for the nuances of the petroleum industry, but there are industry-specific options to give you what you need.
