UtilitySure®

An Insurance Program for the Natural Gas Utility Industry. The UtilitySure insurance program has been designed to address the unique exposures of publicly owned or investor owned natural gas utilities. Water, sewer and electric distribution utilities can also be written in conjunction with a natural gas system. Created in 1988 by natural gas industry specialists, UtilitySure is managed by insurance and risk management professionals who know the unique exposures inherent to utilities. Program "Sweet Spot" includes natural gas distribution with no power generation or contracting exposures.
