Occidental Petroleum production will miss post-Anadarko merger target in 2020

Nov 5 (Reuters) – Occidental Petroleum Corp on Tuesday projected oil and gas production would grow just 2 percent next year, missing the target for 5% growth of the combined business with Anadarko Petroleum. The company said it would slash capital spending next year by 40% to generate cash and help pay down new debt taken on with the deal. It plans 2020 spending of about $5.4 billion and a 2021 budget of $6.6 billion, Chief Executive Officer Vicki Hollub said Tuesday on a call with analysts. The company expects 5% annual production growth in 2021. (Reporting by Jennifer Hiller; Editing by David Gregorio)
