(Reuters) – Occidental Petroleum Corp (OXY.N) said on Wednesday it would add to its board three of activist investor Carl Icahn’s associates, ending a long and bitter fight that began after its ill-timed acquisition of rival Anadarko Petroleum.

Andrew Langham, Nicholas Graziano and Margarita Paláu-Hernández will join Occidental’s board as independent directors, the company said.

“We believe Oxy is a good company with good assets,” Icahn said in a statement.

The Wall Street Journal had first reported on.wsj.com/2wAUfmN that Occidental was nearing a truce with Icahn.
