General Electric has picked a site near downtown Oklahoma City for the home of its new research center focused on the oil and gas industry.
The center is one of nine globally for the company. Former Oklahoma Secretary of Commerce Mike Ming is the general manager of the GE Oil and Gas Technology Center.
Published reports say the new 95,000-square-foot center will be built at NE 10th and N. Walnut Ave., near the University Research Park.
Ming says the company is in final negotiations with the land's owner, the Oklahoma City Urban Renewal Authority, OCURA.
