Almost 500 employees from sales, engineering, commercial operations, and other supporting functions have co-located to the new office building. This regional headquarters will support all segments of the oil and gas industry – from drilling and completion to production, LNG, pipeline, refining, and petrochemicals. In addition to the new office building, GE Oil & Gas also has three manufacturing plants and two service centers in the Houston area. In total, GE Oil & Gas employs more than 2,000 people in the Houston area.

Building facilities include an auditorium, training and meeting rooms, café, and a TelePresence room that uses the latest technology to enable virtual meetings around the globe.
