STOCK INCENTIVE AWARD TERMS AND CONDITIONS
OF RESTRICTED STOCK:
Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Benefit Access Other Awards/My Awards/Awarded
following Terms and Conditions (these Terms and
Conditions) are set forth as of the Date of Grant between OCCIDENTAL PETROLEUM
CORPORATION, a Delaware corporation (Occidental and, with its subsidiaries,
the Company), and the Eligible Employee receiving this award (the Grantee).
1. GRANT OF RESTRICTED STOCK INCENTIVE AWARD. In accordance with these Terms and Conditions
and the Occidental Petroleum Corporation 2005 Long-Term Incentive Plan, as the
same may be amended from time to time (the Plan), Occidental grants to the
Grantee as of the Date of Grant, the number of shares of Restricted Stock set
forth above. The Restricted Stock shall be fully paid and nonassessable and
shall be represented by a book-entry account registered in the name of the
Grantee with Occidentals registrar and stock transfer agent that will be
subject to the restrictions hereinafter set forth until those shares have
become transferable in accordance with Section 2.
2. RESTRICTIONS ON TRANSFER. (a) Until the Vesting Date and the
certification by the Committee of the attainment on or after September 30,
2013 of the Performance Goal, the shares of Restricted Stock may not be
transferred, assigned sold, pledged, exchanged, or otherwise encumbered or
disposed of by the Grantee, except to Occidental or pursuant to a domestic
relations order, if applicable, (if approved or ratified by the Committee);
provided that the Grantee may designate from time to time a beneficiary or
beneficiaries on a form approved by the Company (if enforceable under local
law). If the Grantee dies without a
beneficiary designation on file with Occidental at the time of death, the
Grantees interest in the Restricted Stock will be transferred by will or by
the laws of descent and distribution.
if the Grantee was a Named Executive Officer during the last completed fiscal
year prior to vesting, then such
Grantee shall retain Beneficial Ownership of Shares equal to not less than 50%
of the net after-tax Shares received under these Terms and Conditions until the
third anniversary date of the vesting of the Restricted Stock under this Award
(the Beneficial Ownership Period). Compliance with the foregoing requirement
shall be determined by reference to the reports filed by the Grantee on Forms
3, 4, and 5, as applicable, pursuant to Section 16(a) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the Exchange Act) and the aggregate number
of Shares reported as Beneficially Owned during the Beneficial Ownership Period
shall be not less than the sum of the number of Shares then required to be so
owned pursuant to these Terms and Conditions and the terms and conditions of
any other grant containing this or
similar requirement. For purposes of
these Terms and Conditions, Beneficial Ownership has the meaning ascribed in Rule 16a-1(2) under
the Exchange Act, and Named Executive Officer has the meaning ascribed
thereto pursuant to Item 402 of Regulation S-K under the Exchange Act.
3. PERFORMANCE GOAL. In order for the Grantee to retain the Restricted Stock, the Company must
achieve cumulative reported Net Income (as defined in the Plan) of ten billion
dollars ($10,000,000,000), during the period beginning October 1, 2010 and
ending September 30, 2017. Reported
Net Income shall be cumulative and shall be the sum of the net income and net
losses reported in Occidentals Annual and Quarterly Reports filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission. The
Committee may certify attainment of the Performance Goal effective at any time
on or after the Vesting Date (the Certification Date).
4. VESTING AND
FORFEITURE OF RESTRICTED STOCK INCENTIVE AWARD.
(a) If the Grantee fails to accept this award prior to
the next record date for the payment of dividends on the Common Stock
subsequent to the Date of Grant, then, notwithstanding any other provision of
this award, the Grantee shall forfeit the shares of Restricted Stock and all
rights under this award and this award will become null and void. For purposes of this section, acceptance of
the award shall occur on the date the Grantee accepts this Restricted Stock
Incentive Award through Morgan Stanley Smith Barney Benefit Access or any
replacement on-line system designated by the Company.
(b) The Grantee must remain in the continuous employ of the
Company through the Vesting Date. The
continuous employment of the Grantee will not be deemed to have been
interrupted by reason of the transfer of the Grantees employment among the
Company and its affiliates or an approved leave of absence. However, if, prior to the Vesting Date, the
Grantee dies, becomes permanently disabled while in the employ of the Company
and terminates employment as a result thereof, retires with the consent of the
Company, or terminates employment for the convenience of the Company (each of
the foregoing, a Forfeiture Event), then the number of shares of Restricted
Stock will be reduced on a pro rata basis based upon the number of days
remaining until the Vesting Date following the date of the Forfeiture
Event. If the Grantee terminates
employment voluntarily or is terminated for cause before the Vesting Date, then
these Terms and Conditions will terminate automatically on the date of the
Grantees termination and the Grantee shall forfeit the Restricted Stock.
(c) If a Change in
Control event occurs prior to the Vesting Date, the number of shares of
Restricted Stock will be reduced on a pro rata basis based upon the number of
days remaining until the Vesting Date following the date of the Change in
Control and become nonforfeitable unless, prior to the occurrence of the Change
in Control event, the Committee, as provided in Section 7.1 of the Plan,
determines that such event will not accelerate vesting of any of these
Restricted Stock. Any such determination
by the Committee is binding on the Grantee.
(d) If a Change in
Control event occurs on or after the Vesting Date but prior to the
Certification Date, the shares of Restricted Stock will become nonforfeitable
unless, prior to the occurrence of the Change in Control event, the Committee,
as provided in Section 7.1 of the Plan, determines that such event will
not accelerate vesting of any of these Restricted Stock. Any such determination by the Committee is
binding on the Grantee.
(e) Notwithstanding Section 4(b), if the Company does not
meet the Performance Goal on or before September 30, 2017 the Grantee or
any permitted assignee will forfeit the Restricted Stock. If the Company meets the Performance Goal on
or before September 30, 2017, the Restricted Stock (as may be adjusted
pursuant to Section 4(b)), will become nonforfeitable on the Certification
VOTING AND OTHER RIGHTS. Except as otherwise provided herein, the
Grantee shall have all of the rights of a stockholder with respect to the
shares of Restricted Stock, including the right to vote such shares and receive
any dividends that may be paid thereon; provided, however, that any additional
shares of Common Stock or other securities that the Grantee may become entitled
to receive pursuant to a stock dividend, stock split, combination of shares,
recapitalization, merger, consolidation, separation or reorganization or any
other change in the capital structure of Occidental shall be subject to the
same restrictions as the shares of Restricted Stock.
6. NO EMPLOYMENT
CONTRACT. Nothing in these
Terms and Conditions confers upon the Grantee any right with respect to
continued employment by the Company, nor limits in any manner the right of the
Company to terminate the employment or adjust the compensation of the
Grantee. Unless otherwise agreed in a
writing signed by the Grantee and an authorized representative of the Company,
the Grantees employment with the Company is at will and may be terminated at
any time by the Grantee or the Company.
7. TAXES AND
WITHHOLDING. Regardless of
any action the Company takes with respect to any or all income tax (including
U.S. federal, state and local tax and non-U.S. tax), social insurance, payroll
tax, payment on account or other tax-related items related to the Grantees
participation in the Plan and legally applicable to the Grantee (Tax-Related
Items), the Grantee acknowledges that the ultimate liability for all
Tax-Related Items is and remains the Grantees responsibility and may exceed
the amount actually withheld by the Company.
The Grantee further acknowledges that the Company (i) makes no
representations or undertakings regarding the treatment of any Tax-Related
Items in connection with any aspect of this Restricted Stock Incentive Award,
including the grant or vesting of the Restricted Stock Incentive Award and the
receipt of dividends; and (ii) does not commit to and is under no
obligation to structure the terms of the grant or any aspect of the Restricted
Stock Incentive Award to reduce or eliminate the Grantees liability for
Tax-Related Items or achieve any particular tax result. Further, if the Grantee has become subject to
tax in more than one jurisdiction between the Date of Grant and the date of any
relevant taxable event, the Grantee

in more than one jurisdiction.

arrangements satisfactory to the Company to satisfy all Tax-Related Items. In this regard, the Grantee authorizes the
Company to withhold all applicable Tax-Related Items legally payable by the
Grantee first from the shares pursuant to this Restricted Stock Incentive Award
and, if not sufficient, from the Grantees wages or other cash
compensation. The Grantee shall pay to
the Company any amount of Tax-Related Items that the Company may be required to
withhold as a result of the Grantees receipt of this Restricted Stock Incentive
Award that cannot be satisfied by the means previously described.

the shares of Restricted Stock granted pursuant to these Terms and Conditions.
WITH LAW. The Company will make
reasonable efforts to comply with all federal, state and non-U.S. laws
applicable to awards of this type.
However, if it is not feasible for the Company to comply with these laws
with respect to the grant or settlement of these awards, then the awards may be
cancelled without any compensation or additional benefits provided to Grantee
as a result of the cancellation.
9. RELATION TO OTHER
BENEFITS. The benefits
received by the Grantee under these Terms and Conditions will not be taken into
account in determining any benefits to which the Grantee may be entitled under
any profit sharing, retirement or other benefit or compensation plan maintained
by the Company, including the amount of any life insurance coverage available
to any beneficiary of the Grantee under any life insurance plan covering
employees of the Company. Additionally,
this Restricted Stock Incentive Award is not part of normal or expected
compensation or salary for any purposes, including, but not limited to
calculation of any severance, resignation, termination, redundancy, end of
service payments, bonuses or long-service awards. The grant of this Restricted Stock Incentive
Award does not create any contractual or other right to receive future grants
of Restricted Stock Incentive Awards or benefits in lieu of Restricted Stock
Incentive Awards, even if Grantee has a history of receiving Restricted Stock
Incentive Awards or other cash or stock awards.
10. AMENDMENTS. The Plan may be modified, amended, suspended
or terminated by the Board at any time, as provided in the Plan. Any amendment to the Plan will be deemed to
be an amendment to these Terms and Conditions to the extent it is applicable to
these Terms and Conditions; however, no amendment will adversely affect the
rights of the Grantee under these Terms and Conditions without the Grantees

expenses of the arbitrator. Unless otherwise
required under applicable law, the parties shall each pay their pro rata share
of the neutral arbitrators expenses and fees.
Any controversy regarding the payment of fees and expenses under this

for the award. The award rendered by the
arbitrator shall be conclusive and binding upon the parties hereto, and
judgment upon the award may be entered, and enforcement may be sought in, any
court of competent jurisdiction. To the extent not inconsistent with applicable
laws, the arbitrator will have the authority to hear and grant motions.
