HOUSTON, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hart Energy's 5th annual Oil and Gas Investor Energy Capital Conference (ECC), scheduled for June 6-7 in Houston, will bring two dozen leading finance and energy executives to the stage for keynote addresses and roundtable discussions. The esteemed ECC speakers will explore energy industry trends they see in finance, commodity prices, merger and acquisition activity, and strategy.

This year, ECC examines critical issues facing energy development and financing via four expert panels:

  • Panel 1: Politics, Pipelines, and the Spread
    Across North America, unconventional technology has created a new, virtually untouched frontier. Experts from producers to end users will discuss solutions for monetizing these new resources in the best-priced market.
  • Panel 2: Lease, Buy, Sell — The View from the Producers
    Professionals estimate how much of this new E&P era is left to be played — and detail their strategies for how to play it.
  • Panel 3: The Money's View of Energy
    Learn what funding sources will back today, including private equity, commercial banks, retail investors, and institutional fund managers.
  • Panel 4: Natural Gas — A Conundrum for Some; An Arb Opportunity for Others

Should producers and investors bet on greater upside to natural gas prices in the coming years? Or put their money on oil prices rising even further?

The opening keynote speaker, Ed Morse, managing director and global head, Citigroup Global Markets Inc., will present, "Energy 2020 – North America as the New Middle East." To close the conference, presidential political strategist and author, Dick Morris, will give "Campaign 2012: An Insider's Outlook for the Presidential Election."
