Insurance and exclusions in offshore projects – topical issues

Issues for discussion:

• Unfamiliar issues with familiar knock-for-knock provisions – e.g.:

o How “total” in coverage is the common knock—for knock model?
o Are salvage costs caught or not?
o Is “in any circumstances” as wide as it sounds and, if not, where is the line now drawn?

• Consequential Loss:  Where are we now?

o A consideration of the effect of recent judgments on the meaning of consequential loss, and what such losses might be in the context of offshore E&P operations.

• Insuring offshore drilling, production & decommissioning operations

o Providing an overview of the insurances which respond to offshore risks, involving both traditional operations and also the more novel ones now encountered in an era of decommissioning.
