In their bid to provide unparalleled insurance advisory services to customers, indegenous insurance brokerage company, First Anchor Risk Management Limited, has sponsored some of its employees to participate in the Willis Masters of Energy Course in London, United Kingdom.

The Willis Masters of Energy Course forms a comprehensive introduction to risk management and insurance across the energy industry, covering the upstream and downstream oil, gas and petrochemical industries and is intended for insurance professionals and risk managers with enormous experience in the insurance and energy industries.

Latest to benefit from the programme is the Business Development Manager of First Anchor Risk Management Ltd, Esinam Kporku, an associate of the Chartered Insurance Institute.

“Delegates came from varied backgrounds world-wide, including energy companies, insurers and other interested entities. This allowed for a high degree of interaction throughout the course,” Miss Korku said.

The weeklong course is a highly interactive combination of seminars and workshop modules of about two hours each. Areas covered in the course include the Structure of the Energy Industry, Exploration Operations, Production Operations, Refining Operations, Contractual Risk Analysis, Energy Risk Analysis and Insurance for Exploration Operations.

Faculties of the course offer a wide range of expertise and a wealth of information.

They are considered to be specialists in their particular field. Many of the speakers are Willis Associates, although other external speakers from other associated areas within the insurance market are also engaged to deliver lectures in their respective areas of expertise.

This therefore ensures that the training provided gives an impartial overview and insight into the energy market.
