GE selects Oklahoma City site technology research hub
Oklahoma City, Okla. -- GE has selected a site in downtown Oklahoma City for the company’s first-ever Global Research Center dedicated to oil and gas technology. GE has invested approximately $14 billion in its Oil & Gas business globally since 2007.
The center will focus on accelerating mid- to later-stage oil and gas technologies developed in GE’s Global Research labs, including production systems, well construction, water use optimization, CO2 solutions and energy systems.
Construction on the 95,000-sq-ft facility will begin in the spring of 2014, with the building expected to be completed and operational in 2015.
