(c) On January 20, 2004, Occidental redeemed the trust preferred securities. Portions of this report contain forward-looking statements and involve risks and uncertainties that could materially affect expected results of operations, liquidity, cash flows and business prospects. Words such as “estimate,” “project,” “predict,” “believe,” “will,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “intend” and “expect” or similar expressions that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes generally identify forward- looking statements. You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. Unless legally required, Occidental expressly disclaims any obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. The United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) permits oil and natural gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proved reserves demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation tests to be economically producible under existing economic and operating conditions. We use certain terms in this report, such as estimated proved reserves, probable, possible and recoverable reserves and oil in place, that the SEC’s guidelines strictly prohibit us from using in filings with the SEC. Additionally, the SEC requires oil and natural gas companies, in their filings, to disclose non-financial statistical information about their consolidated entities separately from such information about their equity holdings and not to show combined totals. Certain information in this report is shown on a combined basis; however, the information is disclosed separately in the “Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements” included in the 2006 Annual Report on Form 10-K included in this report.

Oil and gas earnings of $7.239 billion were 21 percent higher than the $5.968 billion this segment earned in 2005.

Oxy’s Permian Basin assets, which span 2 million acres of west Texas and a portion of New Mexico, account for about a third of Oxy’s worldwide net production. In 2006, Oxy acquired Vintage Petroleum with primary assets in California and Argentina. Pictured at right is one of the Argentina properties. Through aggressive drilling, waterflooding and EOR projects, Oxy expects to ramp up production from these newly acquired assets.

Oxy moved quickly once sanctions were lifted, successfully bidding on nine exploration blocks. The Libya Exploration Program is the largest in Oxy’s history.
  • 9. Chemicals Our chemical segment core earnings of $901 million were the highest level achieved in more than a decade and exceeded our 2005 results by 16 percent. Demand for our major products remained strong across most sectors of the economy, including construction, for much of the year. Sales volumes also were sustained by the need to rebuild downstream inventories following the hurricanes in late 2005 and concerns about the potential for similar supply disruptions in 2006. In addition, we continued to benefit from the operation of assets acquired from Vulcan Materials Company in mid-2005 and have realized substantial synergies after the first full year following the integration of these assets. Overall chemical performance was driven by generally strong demand that resulted in healthy margins for our key products. Consistent with our focus on continued improvement in our assets and on health, environment and safety, OxyChem began a project to convert its membrane cell chlor-alkali plant at Taft, Louisiana to potassium hydroxide. The project, when complete in early 2008, will not only improve our cost position, but also will eliminate the last of our mercury cell production facilities in the United States. Oxy’s chemical subsidiary, OxyChem, is a leading North American manufacturer of vinyls, chlorine and caustic soda—the building blocks for such products as pharmaceuticals, water disinfectants and plastics. Based in Dallas, Texas, OxyChem has manufacturing facilities in the United States, Canada, Brazil and Chile.

Occidental recognizes that responsible social, environmental and safety practices are critical to strong financial performance, and we strive to be a socially responsible corporate citizen. In September 2005, Oxy took over operations of the Mukhaizna field, one of the largest in Oman. Oxy and its partners are implementing a drilling and development program including a massive steam flood project.
  • 11. Looking head While we are pleased with our progress in 2006, we are focused on the future to make sure that we grow stronger in 2007 and beyond. World energy demand is growing rapidly. With very little excess capacity, energy prices are likely to remain high and volatile. These factors will continue to drive investment across the energy sector. We plan to grow by building on our strengths and participating in new investment opportunities. One of our most important priorities is to add another core growth area to keep our new project inventory full of high return projects. Another priority is continued growth in our existing is the most extensive exploration initiative in core areas.

Oxy has a 24.5-percent interest in Dolphin Energy Limited with this project, which is one of the largest energy projects to be undertaken in the Middle East.
  • 12. Oxy began exploring Oman’s Safah field in 1983 and discovered this 300-million-barrel field a year later. Through EOR success, extensive 3-D seismic surveying and an 85-percent exploration drilling success rate, Oxy has increased its production, reserves and scope of operations over its 20+ year tenure in Oman. In January 2007, we sold our 50-percent interest in We are committed to achieving superior financial the Vanyoganneft joint venture in western Siberia for and operational results, while adhering to the highest approximately $485 million.
