Oklahoma State University President Burns Hargis commented on General Electric’s announcement Thursday that it will build a 95,000-square-foot home for its $110 million Oil and Gas Technology Center in downtown Oklahoma City near the University Research Park. The building is expected to open in the spring of 2015. GE announced in April that Oklahoma City would be home to the company’s ninth global research center and the first dedicated to one industry.

Burns Hargis, President, Oklahoma State University:

“As the need for reliable and plentiful energy sources grows domestically and globally to support an expanding economy in the coming decades, oil and gas will continue to play a pivotal role.  The new GE center in downtown Oklahoma City will offer our researchers and students access to scientific and technical expertise involved in groundbreaking research endeavors aimed at ensuring the exploration and production of oil and natural gas is conducted in a responsible and efficient manner.  We look forward with high anticipation to collaborating with GE and our colleagues at the Universities of Oklahoma and Tulsa to support energy advancements.”
