Essential Insurance Coverage for the Oil & Gas Industry

Thirty-year-old Edmund Pendleton Chancellor founded Chancellor’s Fire Insurance of Parkersburg over 150 years ago. Despite an abundance of staples such as sugar, flour, coffee, and tea, Parkersburg residents were unable to secure essential fire insurance coverage to protect hard earned Parkersburg businesses from unrecoverable devastation.

The year was 1862. Chancellor’s Fire Insurance business was the first company in the little Ohio River Village of Parkersburg to offer this invaluable coverage for residents. Up to that point, progress was limited due to the proliferation of fires that led to the unfortunate and nearly continual destruction of countless homes and businesses throughout the area. Chancellor’s Fire Insurance was instrumental in fueling the initial growth and prosperity of Parkersburg. Eventually, the Chancellor name came to become synonymous with being the dedicated protector and preferred insurance agency representing the oil and gas energy industry.

Chancellor Insurance Agency, Inc. is located deep within the heart of the oil and gas industry and we have been dedicated to serving the needs of all of our oil and gas industry-related businesses since the energy market was first developed in West Virginia and Southeastern Ohio.
