Devon executive to advise Rubio on energy policy issues

Larry Nichols, Devon Energy co-founder, has been chosen to help Marco Rubio on the Republican presidential candidate’s stance on energy issues, according to Reuters, citing Rubio spokesman Jahan Wilcox. Nichols is set to host a Feb. 26 fundraiser for Rubio in Oklahoma.

Nichols, who is currently executive chairman of Devon Energy after stepping down as the company’s CEO in 2012 after more than 30 years, plans to retire from Devon this year. He has supported the lifting of the nation’s 40-year-old federal ban on crude oil exports.

Nichols is active with industry groups, including America's Natural Gas Alliance, the National Association of Manufacturers, the Business Industry Political Action Committee, and the American Petroleum Institute. He also previously led the American Exploration & Production Council. Before his work in the energy sector, Nichols worked as a special assistant in the US Department of Justice.
