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.
