HOUSTON, Aug 3 (Reuters) – Occidental Petroleum Corp (OXY.N) is keeping its total 2022 production guidance at around 1.55 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed), its CEO Vicki Hollub said on Wednesday, despite target reductions in the U.S. Permian basin.

Occidental cut its 2022 production outlook for the main unconventional basin in the United States to between 516,000 and 526,000 boed, from 527,000 to 537,000 boed projected in May, knocking its shares almost 5% lower to $62 by mid-afternoon.

“All contributed to a slightly lowering (of) our full-year Permian production guidance,” Hollub said, adding that the losses will be fully offset by high production in the Rockies and the Gulf of Mexico.
