Friday, February 14, 2014  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today released the following statement on Occidental Petroleum Corporation moving its corporate headquarters from Los Angeles, California to Houston, Texas:

"Occidental Petroleum is the largest oil producer in Texas and one of the largest in the nation, so it seems only fitting the company would locate its headquarters in Houston, the Energy Capital of the World," Gov. Perry said. "Oxy ranks 125 on the Fortune 500 list, and the company's move is further evidence Texas has built the most dynamic, pro-growth economy in the nation."
