HOUSTON, Aug. 31, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich has been added to the distinguished speaker lineup at Hart Energy's 11th annual A&D Strategies and Opportunities conference and workshop, Sept. 5-6, at the Ritz-Carlton in Dallas.

On Sept. 6, closing keynote Gingrich will provide an insider's perspective on the role energy and energy companies can play in the upcoming presidential election. Gingrich will be joined by Scott Noble, president and CEO of Noble Royalties, who will discuss a recently completed study of lost royalty revenue on federal lands. Noble Royalties completed the study with Netherland, Sewell and Associates, Inc. The underdevelopment and mismanagement of the federal mineral estate has cost the U.S. billions of dollars and untold numbers of high-paying jobs with devastating affects for American consumers. Gingrich and Noble will conclude with practical ways the oil and gas industry can make a difference in November and beyond.

Gingrich represented Georgia's 6th congressional district as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1979 until his resignation in 1999, and served as the 58th Speaker of the House from 1995 to 1999. He served as House Minority Whip from 1989 to 1995 and was a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination.

Since 2001, the A&D Strategies and Opportunities conference and workshop has grown to be the premier event focused on market drivers in upstream oil and gas transactions. It is the largest gathering of exploration & production dealmakers. The conference provides actionable intelligence on metrics and markets as well as access to E&P executives and analysts — and opportunities to initiate company-making deals face-to-face.
