Oil and gas producer Occidental Petroleum Corp said on Tuesday the U.S. Federal Trade Commission has granted approval for its proposed $38 billion deal to buy Anadarko Petroleum Corp.

The waiting period required for companies under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act was terminated early by the FTC, the company said.

The deal is expected to close in the second half of 2019.
