C ertEssentials, LLC was formed in May of 2005 as a certificate of insurance management operation. In 2006, CertEssentials became the marketing arm for a guaranteed cost workers’ comp insurance program for the propane industry endorsed by the Texas Propane Gas Association (TPGA) and a myriad of insurance programs for the Texas Alliance of Energy Producers (TAEP). These programs offer discounts to TAEP and TPGA members and include: GL/Business Auto/ Pollution, Guaranteed Cost Workers’ Comp, Control of Well, Oilfield Property, Rig Physical Damage, Care – Custody – Control and Upstream Equipment. In 2009, CertE received a Managing General Agency license and shortly thereafter formed the DBA “UmbrellEssentials” to serve as a broker to sell follow form excess coverage over BITCO primary General Liability, Business Auto, and Pollution. BITCO themselves will not offer excess policies over its broad, claims-made pollution form. We are currently licensed in 23 states and accept submissions from any agent. While we are a licensed MGA, we currently have marginal underwriting authority and operate primarily as a brokerage. CertEssentials filed another DBA to market under the name One Star Insurance Solutions, LLC in December of 2011. The name change better describes the services we provide as an MGA, developing and administrating specialized insurance solutions for the energy sector. What began as a certificate management operation has become much, much more...Photo:

CRUDE OIL + SALTWATER HAULING PROGRAMThe Coverage Sets Us Apart!Coverage comparisons are important in deciding the proper limits andcoverages available to oilfield trucking. One Star Insurance Solutions, LLC hasprepared this new program for oilfield truckers paying special attention to theneed for pollution limits and coverage wording. Various markets will offerflawed policies which limit coverage. These are the items to consider whenplacing your next oilfield trucking account.Trucker’s Auto LiabilityMany markets offer this product to include pollution events covered by endorsement. While this would appear the logicalway to transfer the risk, it has issues. In this manner, the Auto Liability Limit and Pollution Liability Limit is one and thesame, commonly referred to as shared limits.In One Star’s Trucking Program, the auto liability does not include pollution from the auto operation. Rather than endorsethe auto policy and share limits, this program offers a separate Transportation Pollution Liability policy with $1MM/$2MMlimits of liability. The additional cost is negligible from the way most companies write pollution via endorsement butprovides separate limits and, thus, more protection than shared limits.Trucker’s General LiabilityWhile this exposure is not great on a Saltwater/Crude Hauler, they do have some lease site liability, including pollution notcaused by the auto operation. Most companies offer the pollution included in General Liability as a shared limit and on aTime Element Limited Cover. The Time Element typically requires discovery within 30 days and reporting within 90 days. Asnoted in our Business Auto Pollution, One Star’s Trucking Program provides a separate Contractor’s Pollution Liability policyfor Worksite Pollution. These limits are not shared with General Liability. Additionally, our Pollution Liability is not subject toTime Element reporting. These are the areas of limitation from most markets. By providing separate pollution limits withno time element reporting requirements, One Star and Rockhill have developed the best product for oilfield truckingaccounts.Driver Requirements Ineligible DriversH Must be 25 years of age or older H More than 1 major violation in the past 5 yearsH Must be less than 75 years of age H Habitual Offender: driver has 5 or more minor violationsH Must have at least 3 years of continuous Class ‘A’ , CDL in the past 5 yearsexperience in the United States and 3 years of H Misrepresentation or providing false information for aexperience driving tankers or tanker trailers, or hauling police reportsimilar class H License is currently suspended/revoked or driving whileH Employment history is required if the above is not met license suspended/revoked H Driving without proper license and endorsements H Restricted driving privileges (to and from work or while at work in a personal auto) H Driver is medically disqualified 9

EXCESS LIABILITY COVERAGE offers a comprehensive Excess Program available to allindependent agents for excess coverage with limits from $1 million to $10 million.This program is open to all agents with a specific focus in the oil & gas sector, whohave needs for increased limits /coverages over underlying policies and want to takeadvantage of the follow-form coverage.This Excess coverage is also available on risks such as contractors for building trades,transportation construction, utility construction, land improvement, forest products,structural moving and general contractors. Rate Indication Workbook (RIW) Effective immediately, agents will now be able to produce real-time indications for excess coverage for their clients using our Rate Indication Workbook (RIW). Barring unusual circumstances at underwriting, this indication will become the quote! It is our recommendation that you offer this indication unsolicited to all of your oil & gas clients. The reason is two-fold:  The RIW is at your fingertips to provide fast, accurate indications for your clients. In most cases, the indication that is calculated will be the final quote.  And most important, by offering an excess quote you have alleviated the burden of a potential E&O claim.Gunnar Kephart, E&O Specialist for the Independent Insurance Agents of Texas has indicated that the largestnumber of E&O claims have come as a result of not offering enough limits or not offering the coverage at all.Contact Ashley Tobias ([email protected]) or (940) 704-4556 for submission guidelines orany questions. Make complete submissions to [email protected].*Complete submissions will need to be made to UmbrellEssentials with all required data before a formalized quote can be issued. 10

EXCESS LIABILITY COVERAGE FAQsCoverage comparisons are important in deciding the primary/underlying and the excess. It is alsoimportant to have the same coverage wording apply from the primary through the excess.Several markets such as Travelers, ACE, and Chartis have the same wording available with limits of$1,000,000 primary and $10,000,000 excess. This is very attractive and simple for the insured and theagent. However, these companies’ forms include wording with a Time Element factor to be met orcoverage is excluded.Q: What is Time Element wording and what does it mean?A: Time Element says the incident must be known to the insured within a certain number of days and reported to the insurance company within a certain number of days. Travelers form says first known within 30 days and reported within 90 days; ACE says first known within 30 days and reported within 60 days; and Chartis says first known within 7 days and reported within 21 days. These Time Element requirements can be very limiting to the insured and can cause E & O exposure for the agent. To the contrary, the BITCO Stand-Alone Pollution Policy simply says the “pollution incident” commences on or after the Retroactive date shown in the declarations. This means any incident beginning prior to that date is not covered as would be expected. There is NO Time Element limitations in the BITCO Policy.Q: What is a Pollution incident?A: Travelers, ACE, and Chartis forms defines it as being sudden and accidental, abrupt, and unexpected or unintended by the insured while occurring during the Policy Period and reported to the company within the Time Element. To the contrary, the BITCO Policy says the Pollution incident commences on or after the Retroactive date and has NO Time Element factor and does not have sudden and accidental wording.Q: What wording is in the Excess Policy?A: Travelers, ACE, and Chartis uses the same wording as the primary in the excess. To the contrary, only with UmbrellEssentials Excess Program can we provide the broad BITCO Pollution wording. The UmbrellEssentials Program provides the same terms and conditions up to $10,000,000 limit as the BITCO primary policy.Q: What if the agent moves from Travelers, ACE, or Chartis and the insured has a pollution incident that occurs in the last day of coverage?A: The insured would still be subject to the Time Element reporting provisions.Q: What about with BITCO?A: The BITCO form allows for a one year extended reporting period for those instances. This would be much broader than the Time Element wording. 11
