Contingent Interruption for a Supplier

Reviewed a contingent business interruption claim resulting from the breakdown of a gas turbine at a Jordanian electricity producer. The claim was brought by the electricity supply company, which purchased electricity from the generator under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). The supplier had to rely on other less efficient units to produce electricity and incurred additional fuel and importing costs. Review involved analysis of the insured's generation/dispatch model and valuation of key issues.

Pipeline Blockage Reduces Output

An offshore oil platform suffered a blockage in a pipeline resulting in reduced output. Mitigating actions were carried out to install a bypass to the blocked line. Quantification of the $14 million claim involved analysing the production loss and assessing the economics of the mitigating actions. The resulting report was used by London loss adjusters to confirm that mitigating actions taken by the insured were uneconomic when considering the valuation as per the policy.

Given the limited operating history of the smelter, refractory experts were called in to support quantification of the loss. A production and financial model was created to aid in calculations. The loss was successfully settled for under $20m.
