The risk complexity of exploration and production, together with the growing modernisation of upstream operations, require an experienced yet innovative approach to risk transfer solutions.

Miller’s upstream energy team combines experience with an in depth technical knowledge of wordings and innovative approach to programme design. 

Our business is drawn from all the major regional energy hubs and our clients range from independent service providers to major multinational energy companies. We believe that the diversity and global spread of our client base gives us true insight into the energy insurance market.

Working both directly with clients and through independent intermediaries, we access Lloyd’s, the London and international markets to provide insurance and facultative reinsurance solutions for:

  • exploration and production companies
  • pipeline companies
  • drilling and service contractors
  • energy construction companies
  • integrated energy companies
  • financial institutions investing in energy
  • captives.

Our global reach and long-standing market relationships enable us to place high capacity programmes, as well as offer access to a number of market-leading facilities. We also understand the value and opportunities technology can bring and remain at the forefront of new developments that can benefit our clients. 

We recognise the importance of a prompt and professional claims service and the peace of mind this can offer our clients. As a result we have built one of the strongest claims teams in the industry.
