The award is named after Dean and Professor Eugene Kuntz, who is considered one of the nation’s founding scholars in oil and gas law. Nichols, a lawyer by training will be honored for his contributions to the energy industry and to oil and gas. “We are thrilled to honor Larry Nichols with this year’s Kuntz Award,” said OU Law Dean Joseph Harroz Jr. “His contributions to the energy industry and the state of Oklahoma are unmatched and his impressive work in the legal field sets him apart as truly deserving of an honor of the great Eugene Kuntz.” Nichols helped found Devon Energy in 1971 and served as its president from 1976 to 2003 then as its chief executive officer from 1980 to 2010.
