OKLAHOMA CITY -

Oklahoma Secretary of Energy Michael Ming announced Wednesday that he will step down from his cabinet-level position by the end of May. He plans to assume leadership of GE's new Global Research Center in Oklahoma City.

The creation of the new research center was announced last month and expected to create at least 125 new engineering jobs. The facility will focus on research in the oil and gas sector.

"The decision to locate this new, state of the art facility in Oklahoma is a huge victory for the state," said Ming. "GE's Global Research Center will spur economic growth and continue to enhance Oklahoma's reputation as a global hub for energy companies."

The GE Global Research Center in Oklahoma will become GE's eighth global research center and the first to be sector specific. GE's global research network includes more than 50,000 scientists and engineers.
