Energy Market Review 2018
5 April 2018

Welcome to our Energy Market Review for 2018.

2017 was an interesting year for both the energy and the (re)insurance industries, with the good news of the oil price recovery and increased activity in the energy industry being offset by the devastation and personal tragedies brought about by hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.

Both courses are discussed in-depth in this year’s market review.

We are grateful to all the contributors to this Review, who as usual include both Willis Towers Watson specialists from around the world and external expert commentators. We hope that you enjoy reading it.
