Occidental Petroleum launched a counterbid Wednesday to acquire Anadarko Petroleum, challenging Chevron’s proposed takeover announced earlier this month.

Occidental, a midsized US company, announced it was bidding $76 per share, compared with $65 offered by larger US rival Chevron, according to a statement.

Like Chevron, Occidental is a big player in the shale-rich Permian Basin in Texas and is looking to improve its economies of scale in the region by adding Anadarko’s assets to its portfolio.
