Hart Energy Publishing Expands, Names David Givens Newsletter Publisher.

MCLEAN, Va. -- Hart Energy Publishing announced this week that David Givens has been named Newsletter Group Publisher, responsible for nine titles, including World Fuels Today, Diesel Fuel News, Renewable Fuel News, A&D Watch and Oil and Gas Investor This Week. Givens was most recently Director of the Argus Competitive Fuels Service in Washington, D.C., a product of London-based Argus Media Ltd.

Prior to that, Givens was one of the co-founders of Io Energy, acquired by SNL Financial of Charlottesville, Va. Givens also worked at Gas Daily and Megawatt Daily owned by Pasha Publications, of Arlington, Va., and became managing editor of price surveys for its successor company, Financial Times Energy.

Givens joins a distinguished global newsletter and publications team at Hart in Houston and McLean, including Senior Editor Jack Peckham, Carol Cole and Doug Gill. Givens will also be part of an executive management team dedicated to publishing and information products, including corporate site licenses, an effort headed by Cliff Johnson.

Hart Energy Publishing, LP, based in Houston, is one of the world's largest energy industry publishers, with a diverse array of information products and services. Hart publishes E&P Magazine and Oil and Gas Investor magazine and holds many upstream and downstream conferences each year. Hart also operates the International Fuel Quality Center, complete with its Global Biofuels Service.

"Our magazines are growing rapidly as we capitalize on sustained interest in upstream hydrocarbon development throughout the globe by companies of all sizes, along with non-traditional investors," Chief Executive Officer Richard A. Eichler said. "Increasing the depth of our coverage in the North American fuels market is complementary to our goal of expanding Hart's role as a premiere global information provider."

Interest in Hart Energy Publishing's conferences is at levels unprecedented in their 20-year history. Hart's World Refining and Fuels Conference, titled "Understanding Refining, Fuels and Vehicles in a New Age of Renewables and Energy Market Change," is being held March 21-23, 2006, in Salt Lake City, Utah, immediately following the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association (NPRA) Annual Meeting.

"New opportunities are emerging on the feedstock side with Canadian syncrudes, and substantial refining changes are under way as a part of the Renewable Fuels Standard," Executive Director Fred Potter said.

"The RFS not only requires new amounts of ethanol and biodiesel, but substantial changes in refinery operations and baseline hydrocarbon composition," Potter continued. "Each of our newsletters is dedicated to certain aspects of this dynamic change, and David Givens brings a powerful element of editorial expertise and business background to our growing publishing enterprise."
