As OCCI is a C++ API for the Oracle client it's impossible to use OCCI without the Oracle client. For a minimal installation use Instant Client.

If you don't want an Oracle client then your only way to communicate with a remote DB is to write your own version of SQL*Net (and if you're going to do that you may as well use SQL*Net as it's already been written and debugged).
