What is Pipeline Insurance and What does it Cover?

Pipeline Insurance

Chemical,gas, and petroleum enterprises that produce or extract from under the ground can spend in the millions on building overhead and underground pipelines to facilitate passage.of their products. These companies need specialized insurance coverage available only from carriers that have high property capability and can shield the industry from the financial repercussions of inherent exposure to risks.

A Pipeline Insurance policy can cover a pipeline's exposure to property damage, injury, business interruption and other types of commercial losses from the following perils:

  • Fire

  • Flooding

  • Soil erosion

  • Landslides

  • Earthquakes

  • Ruptures

  • Collision

  • Explosion

Additionally, pipelines that are situated under bodies of water can be covered for damage incurred by boats and ships that pass by.

Pipeline Insurance is generally written on an ‘all-risk’ basis for the pipelines as well as associated:

  • Buildings

  • Meters

  • Machinery

  • Pumping stations

  • Tanks
