The University of Oklahoma College of Law and the Energy and Natural Resources Law Section of the Oklahoma Bar Association hosted the 2016 Eugene Kuntz Conference on Natural Resources Law & Policy at the Cox Convention Center in Oklahoma City, on November 4. The conference attracted nearly 600 attendees and is one of the largest oil and gas law conferences in the country. OU Law Professor Monika Ehrman was one of the featured speakers, presenting on “Oil and Gas Lease Issues in a Low Price Commodity Environment.” Additionally, OU Law presented Larry Nichols, co-founder of Oklahoma City-based Devon Energy Corporation, with the Eugene Kuntz Award. 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. He was also on Devon’s board of directors from 1971 to 2016.
