Energy Risk Consulting

Risk analysis and mitigation expertise for offshore and onshore energy

Allianz Risk Consulting (ARC) fields a team of Energy engineering consultants with extensive experience in risk management and loss control engineering across the upstream, midstream and downstream energy sectors. 

Energy operations are conducted around the globe, in some of the most challenging environments on earth.  These operations are inherently large, complex and high risk, which is why the risk consulting team is an integral part of the services that AGCS offers. Our risk engineering evaluations are the first step in the AGCS technical underwriting business. This support is essential to understanding Energy risks, exposures and insurance solutions - and another reason why AGCS is the insurer of choice for so many oil, gas and chemical companies around the world.
