Ironshore's U.S. Specialty Casualty unit announced that its Energy Unit is offering enhanced insurance coverage endorsements for upstream energy risks as part of its ExcessProtect Plus Energy Commercial Excess Liability policy.

The suite of endorsements provides insurance coverage for energy risks that are engaged in oil and gas lease site operations, including lease operators and non-operators as well as the myriad of contractors working in this segment of the energy sector.

"The upstream energy space presents clients with unique exposures typically not seen with most other industry sectors. Ironshore is addressing these exposures, especially in a technology- driven industry, to assist our clients in closing gaps that may exist in traditional insurance covers," said Dawn Puro, Vice President, Home Office Underwriting Manager U.S. Specialty Casualty.

"The endorsements offer solutions for such risks as use of radioactive isotopes found in well logging tools, expanded underground resources coverage, as well as exceptions to ISO styled pollution covers with respect to what constitutes a waste site."
