On January 2, 2020, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Occidental Petroleum Corporation (“Occidental”) increased the size of the Board from 10 to 11 directors in order to elect Andrew Gould, a former Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Schlumberger Limited (“Schlumberger”), to the Board effective March 1, 2020.

Mr. Gould has more than 40 years of experience in the oil and gas industry. From 2003 to 2011, he served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Schlumberger, a leading oilfield services company. Mr. Gould began his career at Schlumberger in 1975 in its Internal Audit department, based in Paris. In addition to his career at Schlumberger, Mr. Gould served as non-Executive Chairman of BG Group, a multinational oil and gas company, from 2012 until its sale to Royal Dutch Shell in 2016.  He served as interim Executive Chairman in 2014. He currently serves as a member of the Board of Directors of Saudi Aramco, a leading global energy company, and BJ Services, a private oilfield services company. Mr. Gould has an undergraduate degree in Economic History from Cardiff University and qualified as a Chartered Accountant with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Gould and any other persons pursuant to which he was selected as a director. Mr. Gould has not been appointed to any committees of the Board at this time. Pursuant to Occidental’s compensation program for non-employee directors, Mr. Gould will be entitled to receive (i) a pro rata portion of the 2019-2020 common stock equity award granted to non-employee directors and (ii) a pro rata portion of the 2019-2020 retainer paid to non-employee directors.
