Continental Resources CEO Harold Hamm is slated to speak at next week’s Republican National Convention.

According to NewsOK, Hamm will deliver a speech on the U.S. energy industry during the convention.

A time and date for Hamm’s speech has not been disclosed yet.

Earlier this year, Hamm voiced his support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

In an open letter first reported on by the Wall Street Journal in April, Hamm said Trump will not be “beholden to special interests and has the fortitude to make tough decisions.”

Prior to endorsing Trump, Hamm donated $1,000 to the campaign of Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

Last year, Hamm took the third spot on Wealth X’s wealthiest U.S. oil tycoon list with an estimated net worth of $11.8 billion.

The Koch brothers, who took the top two slots on the Wealth X list, have said they will not attend the convention.

The convention will take place from July 18 to July 21 in Cleveland.
