Temsah Platform - Mediterranean Sea, offshore Egypt.

MatthewsDaniel established an accurate reserve, swiftly identified and resolved all issues, adjusted regular interim claims and delivered a successful outcome for all parties.
Refinery fire - Priolo, Sicily
A significant refinery fire caused little physical damage to the insured’s adjacent petrochemical plant. However, the feedstock for the insured’s plant came from the refinery and the fire caused a total interruption to supply. In addition to a claim on their contingent business interruption insurance, there was clear potential for recovery from the party responsible for the fire. In these cases, causation and quantum investigations need to be precise and fully supported, enabling the claim to be promptly settled and setting the stage for subrogation.
