Oklahoma City's four largest independent oil and natural gas companies all are either moving into new buildings or expanding their existing headquarters.

The state's largest oil and natural gas trade association soon will make its own move into a new, centrally located home.

“It's been a labor of love,” Mike Terry, president of the Oklahoma Independent Petroleum Association, said of the six-year funding and construction effort.

OIPA represents oil and gas companies of all sizes. While the state's largest players are members, the vast majority of the organization's more than 2,000 member individuals and companies represent much smaller firms.

About 95 of those members have contributed to the building's $5 million price tag.

The three-story, 24,000-square-foot building also will house the Oklahoma Energy Resources Board and four conference rooms.

“It's going to have a place for people to come,” Terry said. “Legislators struggle every day to have a meeting place. We're going to have four conference rooms where they will feel welcome.”
