    I think we'll hear something as soon as the OCCF sells the SC site, but that should coincide with the official formation of the MLP. That could be 30 to 60 days.

    haha, I was just thinking this as well. But I guess I'm the only one that's given up. Fitting given the user name.

    I guess I wasn't clear. I meant given up on any new news short of an announcement.

    You make it seem like this is effort thing... Like if OKCTalk posters all just try harder then we'll get more news and an announcement.

    All that's changed is the ridiculous level of baseless speculation has died down. Only about one in probably 100 posts has really added to our knowledge of realistic possibilities. This has never been important to an actual announcement...

    Probably has nothing to do with the mystery towers but does anyone know why two 737s for a Turkish/Dutch airline are sitting out at Will Rogers right now? Corendon Airlines is headquartered in Turkey with a secondary HQ in Amsterdam and only flies scheduled service in Europe but does charter flights. These are two of their 8 planes. Seems like OKC would be a strange random charter location.

    Someone probably bought the airframes from that airline and are in OKC for maintenance, refurb, and repaint.

    Has nothing to do with a tower.

    I noticed those coming in to work early this morning but it was dark and didn't see anything special about them. There's always different kinds of airlines parked over there. Nothing special.

    Like I said a few days ago, a new tower is not coming any time soon, now everybody can go back to living their daily lives, thank you.

    I think news like this is only an indicator of how big an operation we are talking about. It's all good.

    Yep, I see this as confirmation of solid progress.

    And you know something big is coming.

    guess your definition of soon and mine are slightly different. when it comes to a massive deal such as this... even 6 months is soon. We need to get out of this mindset of instant gratification and expecting everything to be right now, or else we don't care anymore

    I posted this shortly after the MLP announcement:

    This basically only helps to solidify that this MLP is indeed the tower. It takes a long time to close a deal of this magnitude, so when Steve said announcement by end of March, it turns out the announcement was only the companies involved, and not the physical headquarter of said company. Could have been misunderstanding by Steve or that someone said to him "you will hear something by the end of March" and Steve may have innocently assumed this would be a more OKC oriented announcement as opposed to the blanket announcement of the deal.


    Regardless, toting yourself as "I knew nothing would happen yet, I was right! you were wrong!" is like the kid in middle school claiming he heard a song before it got popular.



    Times are good in OKC, let's enjoy them!

    I agree with Modernism on this one. Just too much uncertainty floating around between Reuters' investigations into every OKC O&G company they find, the respective CEOs of CHK and SandRidge doing what they can to tank their companies, and whatever is going to happen with Hamm and Continental. I just don't think a tower is coming and this deal is done.

    The new MLP formed by OGE/CentertPoint is not going to be on Stage Center property, thank you.

    Nothing is going to happen with Hamm and continental, that's kind of ridiculous. Sandridge and CHK's situations have nothing to do with the MLP and when they will announce something. Anything with SD and CHK regarding available office space will not develop quickly enough and will not have definite enough results to affect someone currently 90 days out from announcing that they are building or relocating to OKC. I'm not sure what is slowing this down, but the status of other companies' office space related to the slight chance of them relocating, at this point, doesn't have anything to do with it.

    Do you know, or is that an inference based on Steve's announcement.

    It actually could have a lot to do with it. Continental is in a precarious spot with these divorce proceedings. SandRidge and CHK's situations do have influence on whether a company would build a new building or wait it out for their space when they're sold off to the highest bidders.

    I take this as confirmation that we're dealing with the MLP. 90 days is what we've been hearing for them to make an announcement, and now we find out no news on Mystery Tower for 90 days.

Regardless of where the company is headquarted, Enogex will continue to have a large prescense in the state, thank you.
    This was Modernism's post a few days ago, and if you read it closely it states that the location of new headquarters has not been decided, and won't be decided until after transaction is done. So how can new MLP be at Stage Center if they don't even know for sure if company will be here in OKC?

    I think you'd loose if you took this bet. Why do think the newly announced MLP will not be on the SC site ?

    I think they already know, how many times did Steve say 'I'm not worried' when asked about the SC site falling through..?
