Petroleum industry activity has picked up considerably over the last three years, in part due to the increased price of crude oil.  In 2023, 6,400 plus wells are expected to be drilled in Canada. Coupled with drilling for the development of Alternative Energy Sources, the petroleum industry continues to be a driving factor in our economy.

As various carriers focus on specific sectors of the petroleum industry our usual 2 day course has been divided into three separate three hour webinars, allowing participants to focus on the area applicable to their business activity. Attend one or all three!

Part Two will cover Midstream - Production & Enhanced Recovery.

The first part of the webinar will be delivered by George Sutherland and will cover the technical aspects of the petroleum industry including:

  • Well Evaluation 
  • Well completion and Surface Production Facilities
  • Oil & Gas Recovery

Followed by Arnie Zippel who will cover insurance specific information including:

  • Control of Well (Operators Extra Expense)
  • Umbrella & Excess Liability
