MIDLAND - Occidental Petroleum officials and employees have broken ground for the company’s Midland office. The 212,000-sf complex is planned for 6001 Deauville Blvd., just west of the Scharbauer Sports Complex.

The four-story building will house 600 employees and will feature state-of-the-art technology, tools and automated systems.

A control room will allow Occidental’s Permian Basin assets to be monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A conference center will provide room for town hall and other large-scale meetings with seating for more than 250 and ten work-top tables.

The complex, which allows for opportunities to expand, will incorporate the company’s three main work groups which include the Enhanced Oil Recovery team, the Permian Resources group and the Midstream group.

In 2015, the company will break ground on a 20,000-sf Permian training center in north Midland on the company’s South Curtis Ranch holdings.

Occidental’s new complex is the first in the company’s planned Energy Plaza at Westridge Park, which will feature up to five four-story 100,000-sf office buildings.

Westridge Park is a master-planned development on more than 100 acres located just east of Chevron’s new campus.
