Any such indemnity bond shall be conditioned for the payment of damages on account of injuries to property, public or private, and bodily injuries or death to any person resulting from the drilling, operation, or maintenance of the oil or gas well, or any structure pertinent thereto. Such coverage shall also include protection for the acts of independent contractors of applicant for let or sublet.
