The Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association and Oklahoma Energy Resources Board are moving into a home of their own.

The move has been years in the making.

OIPA spokesman Cody Bannister said former Chairman Harold Hamm, the CEO of Continental Resources Inc., initiated the process in 2006.

“He felt we needed a permanent home and now we have one,” he said.

He said OIPA is believed to be the only state oil and natural gas industry advocacy group to have its own headquarters.

OIPA and OERB will start moving Thursday into their new 23,000-square-foot building at 500 NE 4, at the intersection of NE 4 and N Lincoln Boulevard.

Bannister said the three-story building has office space for 11 OIPA employees, 10 from OERB and enough room for visiting industry officials, while providing a nice view of downtown and the state Capitol.

The building also has a large reception hall on the top floor for luncheons and other industry events.
