Sean Spicer to speak at gas industry conference

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer is slated to speak at a natural gas industry conference this month in Pennsylvania.

The Marcellus Shale Coalition announced Spicer’s appearance Wednesday, a day after the WorldWide Speakers Group announced that it would be exclusively representing Spicer for paid speaking arrangements.

The appearance at the annual Shale Insight conference is one of Spicer’s first paid gigs since leaving the White House at the end of August.

It’s the same conference where then-candidate Donald Trump spoke last year to outline his energy agenda and how he believed it would benefit the natural gas industry.

Spicer will give the closing keynote address on Sept. 28.

“Mr. Spicer’s closing keynote will provide an inside perspective of now U.S. President TrumpDonald John TrumpLev Parnas implicates Rick Perry, says Giuliani had him pressure Ukraine to announce Biden probe Saudi Arabia paid 0 million for cost of US troops in area Parnas claims ex-Trump attorney visited him in jail, asked him to sacrifice himself for president MORE’s administration and policy plans regarding the U.S. energy revolution and our new-found wealth of natural gas, particularly in the states of Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia,” conference organizers said.

“Mr. Spicer will touch upon how we are poised to strengthen our nation’s geopolitical position, create manufacturing opportunities here at home and jobs for all Americans while continuing to protect our environment.”

Spicer is also planning to share his insight as a communications professional and what the oil and gas industry can learn from his experiences.

The event’s other speakers include state regulators, energy association leaders and executives from major gas and oil companies like XTO Energy and Shell.

Spicer served as White House press secretary from Trump’s inauguration in January through July, but remained employed at the White House until the end of August.

He announced his departure when Anthony Scaramucci was hired as the new communications director, but Trump fired Scaramucci a little over a week later.

Spicer was previously the communications director of the Republican National Committee.
