Occidental is a leading foreign oil producer in Algeria. The company and its partnerships are currently producing from three mega projects– Ourhoud, HBNS and El Merk – as part of a production sharing agreement that was signed with Sonatrach in the late​​ 1980s.

Through its subsidiaries, Occidental’s relationship with Sonatrach dates back more than 25 years. In 1998, Sonatrach and then-Anadarko formed Groupement Berkine, a joint-operating association.​​

​Today, activities at Groupement Berkine facilities include operations, engineering, maintenance, logistics and health, safety and environment. The association has discovered more than 3 billion barrels of oil in Algeria.


Our Ghana operations include production and development activities located offshore in the West Cape Three Point Block and the Deepwater Tano Block.

​Operated by Tullow, these assets include the Jubilee Field, which achieved first oil in 2010, and the adjacent TEN development, which started oil production in 2016. ​ ​
