Description: A review has been carried out of 100 major losses in the onshore oil, gas and petrochemical industries over the past 20 years. The original intention of this study was to analyse common causes of major losses in a way that could be of practical use to insurance risk engineers. However, given the energy insurance industries is in a unique position in that is has experience and detailed knowledge of many industry losses that are not widely reported on in public, this study is of value to those working in the oil, gas and petrochemical industries who are looking for lessons learned opportunities to assist in their own or client risk management programmes.
