    That's exactly what I took away from it as well. Just disappointed that Pete was fairly certain it was coming within the next two hours and then one post and the whole thing is off. It was weird.

    Yes BUT I also have my initial source completely standing by the information I have provided.

    And trust me, it's not possible to have a better source on this.


    I suppose it's possible that OG&E is in the dark but highly unlikely but also very, very unlikely my source has it wrong.

    If something doesn't come out today or tomorrow then perhaps something came off the rails at the last minute... But I don't think so.

    Corporate announcements are often treated with greater secrecy than nuclear formulas, and info can be just as fleeting and volatile. Announcements one minute, denials the next. I'm sure Pete wouldn't have posted what he did were he not 99.9% confident of its accuracy. Reminds me (at least in terms of secrecy and denial, not jobs) about a big downtown OKC party they were going to do for the OU football team after the 2000 national title run, and an acquaintance had arrange some VIP seating for me and my son, when all of a sudden, "POOF," it was gone, it was denied there ever was such a bash planned. Story was that OU killed it behind the scenes, but it was never publicly acknowledged.

    Ahh, the world of city, corporate, and business secrets. Gotta love it.

    The individual joined over a year ago. Clearly they've been lurking and PMing Pete information.

    Advantage OKC.
    About time we took something from them...Not that they took Harden from us, but Houston did take Kerr/McGee(Anadarko) and Conoco/Phillips. Any others?

    Not so much for OKC, but Houston has been a thorn in Tulsa's side.

    Just off the top of my head: Citgo, Texaco & Unocal (now Chevron), Sunoco Pipeline Division, Amerada Hess, PetroHawk (now BHP Biliton). I have also heard rumors Laredo is divesting all of its OK properties and will likely leave the state (possibly to Dallas) in the next year.

    I am sure there are some I'm missing.

    Standard Oil upstream R&D to Exxon/Mobil a long time ago. Noble drilling from Ardmore also.

    But didn't SandRidge buy some offshore operator's assests from Houston last year ?

    They spun sold off their midstream assets last year to a new company called Access Midstream Partners, backed largely by the Williams Companies.

    They also bought the two Central Park buildings from CHK, where most their employees are located.
