Dallas, TX, March 7, 2014—Nearly 500 risk managers, insurance agents, brokers, attorneys, and underwriters who specialize in managing or insuring oil and gas risks convened in Houston March 4–6 for the 2014 IRMI Energy Risk & Insurance Conference.

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 IRMI Energy Risk and Insurance Conference is the only national symposium devoted 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. Handouts from these sessions are now available at no cost on Sixteen charter sponsors signed on to help provide several networking opportunities.

“Many unique risks are inherent in exploring for, extracting, and transporting oil, gas, and other hydrocarbons, and there is a great need in the industry for a forum where best practices for managing and insuring them can be shared,” said IRMI President and CEO Jack Gibson. “The attendees gave the Conference rave reviews on the quality of the educational sessions and the networking opportunities, allowing us to conclude that we are on the right track with this Conference. We will begin planning next year right away with a goal of making it even better.”

The next IRMI Energy Risk and Insurance Conference is planned for the spring of 2015. For more information, visit
