Anadarko Petroleum Corp.'s board has declared Occidental Petroleum Corp.'s sweetened USD 38 billion takeover "superior," giving Chevron Corp. four days to either boost its offer or walk away from the oil industry's biggest deal in at least four years.

If it decides not to raise the bid, Chevron can walk away with a USD 1 billion breakup fee.
