Errors and Omissions Insurance

Petroleum Realty Advisors, Inc.'s corporate legal counsel has advised that we neither confirm nor deny having errors and omissions insurance. Engagement of the firm's services should be based solely on the firm's demonstrated asset-class knowledge and competency, not the depth of the firm's pockets. The company has chosen to exclusively specialize in petroleum assets in order to provide the most credible and reliable appraisal services. This creates substantial risk mitigation benefits for our clients, the value of which should not be underestimated. As a point of evidence, it should be noted that in over 16 years of operation, neither the firm nor the firm's personnel have ever been the focus of an errors and omissions claim, nor has the threat of such a claim ever arisen.
