Occidental Petroleum announced that its subsidiary, California Resources Corporation, has filed a Registration Statement on Form 10 with the U.S. SEC in connection with Occidental’s previously announced plan to spin-off its California oil and gas business. Following its spin-off from Occidental, CRC will be an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company focused on high-growth, high-return conventional and unconventional assets exclusively in California. The Form 10 contains preliminary information about the potential terms and conditions of a spin-off of CRC. It also includes information about CRC as a stand-alone company, covering financial, capital structure, business, risk factor and management and governance information. The Form 10 will be revised and updated in future amendments.
