OKLAHOMA CITY – GE today announced the selection of a site in Downtown Oklahoma City for the company’s first-ever Global Research Center dedicated to Oil & Gas technology.

GE’s new center will create 130 high-tech jobs and is expected to have a indirect economic impact of $13 million on the state and local economies.

GE has invested approximately $14 billion in its Oil & Gas business globally since 2007.

The new center will be located on a site at 10th and Walnut Avenue, near downtown Oklahoma City.

Governor Mary Fallin said, “In April, we celebrated news of GE’s decision to invest and establish their Oil & Gas R&D center in our great state. Today, we mark another milestone that shows how this vision is quickly becoming a reality.”
