9-11 March 2021
Virtual Event Experience

Lillehammer Energy Claims Conference

Bringing together leading international underwriters, claims adjusters, insureds, brokers and other service providers involved in claims arising from activities which are commonly referred to as offshore energy risks (which extend to related onshore activities and include well and drilling operations irrespective of location) this 3-day event includes presentations, activities and networking. The Conference is a non-commercial undertaking organised by a Committee drawn from professionals with extensive experience of energy claims.

Since its modest beginning in 1996 as a forum for informal discussions between leading energy insurers and their loss adjusters, the annual Lillehammer Energy Claims Conference has grown to encompass representatives from global oil & gas companies, claims brokers and certain specialist service providers.

Energy Claims Conference 2022

Vice President – Offshore Energy Claims, Gard AS

2021 Speakers

The conference is the leading international gathering of underwriters, claims adjusters, insureds, brokers and other service providers involved in claims arising from activities which are commonly referred to as offshore energy risks (which extend to related onshore activities and include well and drilling operations irrespective of location).

For over five years the conference has attracted capacity attendances - some 345 delegates in 2015 for the 20th Anniversary Conference. In recent years participants from America, Angola, Australia, Bermuda, Canada, Denmark, Dubai, France, Germany, Indonesia, Jordan, Malaysia, Mexico, Monaco, The Netherlands, Norway, Qatar, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, the U.K., Venezuela, Vietnam and elsewhere, have clearly justify the conference’s claim to be the premier international energy claims forum.

Attendance at the Conference is, in general, restricted to representatives of underwriters, claims adjusters, insureds, claims brokers and other service providers directly involved in claims arising from offshore energy risks.

The Conference is not open to members of the legal professions although the Committee will usually issue a very limited number of specific invitations to lawyers closely involved with subjects under discussion. To encourage an atmosphere of open debate and participation, opinions expressed at the event are considered personal to the speakers and members of the media are excluded.

Delegates are always encouraged though Q&A and commentary sessions to play an active part in the Conferences’ interactive programmes.
