Insurance for Oil & Gas Industry


The birth of the U.S. oil and gas industry happened right here in western Pennsylvania when drilling on the Drake Well in Titusville was completed in 1859, the nation’s first commercial oil well. Gilbert’s Risk Solutions has been inextricably linked with this industry since its founding, and continues to provide insurance for oil and gas operations today.

Gilbert’s Risk Solutions insures midstream and upstream companies in the petroleum industry. We work with companies ranging from exploration and production to transportation, storage, and wholesale marketing of oil and gas products, along with related industries.


Due to the high-risk nature of the oil and gas industry and the specialized expertise required for managing and insuring this risk, many agencies take a hands-off approach. Gilbert’s Risk Solutions not only understands this industry, we have decades of experience in servicing it. In addition to accessing specialized insurance markets geared to the industry, we have strong expertise in Master Service Agreement (MSA) compliance, contracts, and bonds.


While we’re proud to call Pennsylvania our home, we’ve helped businesses all across the country manage their risk and we look forward to helping you, too – no matter where it is that you call home.
