Zurich Financial Services Group has announced they will now offer insurance relating to carbon capture and storage. The group will offer a CCS liability insurance and geologic sequestration financial assurance, both of which could prove very helpful as the CCS industry seeks support from the government. The insurance packages are designed to "meet the unique insurance needs of CCS projects from design over operational phases through to closure and post-closure events at the geologic storage sites," according to a press release. The company spent about a year evaluating and developing the insurance packages with the oil and gas industry.
