Having recently reached the six-month milestone since launching Oilshield, our new whole business insurance offering for Fuel Oil Distributors, we caught up with our insurance partners at Aviva to celebrate the initial success of the product and to look ahead to plans for Oilshield’s future growth. Key personnel from Aviva were on hand to provide their thoughts on the journey so far.

Jonathan Smith, Head of UK Mid Market Underwriting, Aviva
“We’ve enjoyed working with experts in the Hazardous Goods sector to help create Oilshield, a whole business insurance offering that is proving to be very popular amongst Fuel Oil Distributors and associated trades. As a Triple-A Rated Insurer, the product represents exemplary levels of cover and quality service. At the heart of the scheme, is the delivery of pro-active Risk Management to work with and support scheme clients.
The initial response has been an excellent indicator that the Oilshield offering fits well with Aviva’s growth strategy. This represents a long-term commitment from Aviva to underwrite the Oilshield insurance scheme on an exclusive basis. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with Evergreen and Compass to build strong relationships in this sector.”
Matt Lamb, Proposition & Portfolio Underwriter (SME Solutions)
“Aviva are delighted to be working with Evergreen Insurance Services and Compass Environmental to deliver this great product. We have been impressed with the high levels of professionalism and the sector’s positive attitude to risk. It was a pleasure to be able to present the Green Award at this year’s FPS EXPO and I am already looking forward to attending next year’s show!”
Stewart Ower, Managing Director of Compass Environmental Consultancy and Dave Gardiner of Evergreen said “Partnering with the UK’s largest insurance company, Aviva, to underwrite our Oilshield product brings strength and depth to our offering. Our knowledge of the Fuel Oil Distribution industry combined with our personable approach to working with our clients, backed by the underwriting power, expertise and stability of Aviva, is proving to be a winning combination.”
