Release Date: Mar 18, 2015

Dallas, TX, March 19, 2015—Almost 500 risk managers, insurance agents, brokers, attorneys, and underwriters who specialize in managing or insuring oil and gas risks convened here March 16–18 for the 3rd IRMI Energy Risk & Insurance Conference.

The IRMI Energy Risk & Insurance Conference is the only national symposium devoted exclusively to managing and insuring the risks of oil and gas exploration and operations. Attendees experienced more than 20 sessions and workshops presented by more than 40 nationally recognized risk and insurance, economic, and oil and gas industry experts.

Oil and gas operators, drilling contractors, and well servicing contractors large and small sent their risk, insurance, and safety managers. In addition, virtually all the major providers of insurance services were represented.

“The last nine months have been financially challenging for the oil and gas industry,” said IRMI CEO Jack Gibson. “A substantial commitment to understanding, mitigating and insuring the complex risks inherent in the oil patch came through loud and clear this week. The conference attendance did not decrease from last year, and the participants will return to work having learned practical approaches to protect their companies in any economic climate.”

The 4th IRMI Energy Risk & Insurance Conference will be held next spring, in Houston, TX. For more information, visit
