In this role, he has led the company’s growth-focused initiatives including mergers and acquisitions, land management and worldwide exploration, and has played a key role in the capital allocation process. From 2008 to 2012, Mr. Stevens was Vice President, Acquisition and Corporate Finance, and Vice President, California Operations, for Occidental.

    Mr. Albrecht, 62, has been President, Occidental Oil and Gas - Americas, and Vice President, Occidental Petroleum Corporation, since 2011.
