2024 Lillehammer Energy Claims Conference
In-person event

Since its modest beginning in 1996 with just over 100 attendees, the Lillehammer Energy Claims Conference had steadily grown to become the premier energy insurance market conference.

The current scenario
The geopolitical events during 2023 have caused societal changes in many parts of the world. They have affected global trade patterns, supply chains etc and the world is adapting to these changes. For our modern societies energy is a basic need and the latest developments have raised significant concerns about fragility in the supply of energy. Like financing, insurance is an enabler to develop and maintain a stable supply of energy to the world whilst ensuring that global societies maintain sustainable progress.

Agenda
The agenda for the LECC 2024 conference is devised to address a broad variety of topics of relevance to practitioners in the international energy insurance market. LECC 2024 will address the current state of the energy insurance markets, international geopolitical situation, Carbon Capture and Storage risks, abandoned offshore wells, AI in insurance processes and many other interesting topics. The committee always aims to reflect opinions and feedback gained from previous conferences.

In-person
Equally to the professional take-aways from the conference, the relaxed venue is renowned for its excellent atmosphere for networking across the business categories of attending professionals. Digital webinars are excellent for information sharing and basic training courses, however, have a long way to go to replace in-person meetings.

Departures from Lillehammer

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.
