Noble Energy Inc., the global oil and gas exploration and production company, began work Thursday on the second phase of its corporate campus at Highway 249 near Louetta in Houston, Texas. The new phase, Energy Center Two, will be a 450,000 square feet, 20-story building across from Noble Energy’s Energy Center One, the recently renovated 497,000-square-foot twin 10-story buildings formerly occupied by Hewlett Packard Co.
Energy Center Two is expected to be completed in 2015. The new addition will connect to Energy Center One via a skybridge, and employees who work in either of the two structures will share a conference center, parking garage, cafeteria, fitness center, and an on-site laundry center. The energy giant also partnered with Lone Star College-University Park to construct a childcare facility that will be available to Noble Energy employees on the ground floor of the college campus.
Noble Energy began moving about 750 of its employees from its Greenspoint office to Energy Center One earlier this year. When the second phase is complete and occupied, Noble Energy will have close to 1 million square feet of office space on its campus for 1,600 employees.
Noble is leasing Energy Center One, and will lease Energy Center Two, as well. The lease is for more than 10 years, and the move and consolidation by Noble will anchor the Northwest Houston area, which will continue to grow with the relocation of Exxon Mobil Corp. to the north.
