Chevron (CVX) - Get Chevron Corporation Report said Friday it plans to buy Anadarko Petroleum (APC) - Get Anadarko Petroleum Corporation Report for $33 billion in cash and stock, reported TheStreet's M. Corey Goldman.

Chevron said it will pay $65 a share to Anadarko shareholders, who will receive 0.3869 a share of Chevron and $16.25 in cash for each Anadarko share.

The total enterprise value of the transaction is $50 billion.
