"Breakthrough technologies in natural gas have radically transformed the global energy landscape over the past decade," Mark Little, chief technology officer of GE, said in a statement. "We look at innovation through a broad lens."

GE expects to test the new technologies at its Global Research Center (GRC) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The $110 million center is part of the company's strategy to triple research and development investment for oil and gas technologies.

"Through increased R&D investment, the creation of tech hubs, like Oklahoma City and Rio de Janeiro, and new partnership models, we are getting closer to our customers and bringing best-in-class technologies to market quicker," GE Oil and Gas President Lorenzo Simonelli said.
