    BHP to meet iron ore commitments despite train derailment: CEO

    Global miner BHP Billiton will meet its iron ore commitments to customers despite a supply disruption after it had to derail a runaway ore train in Western Australia, Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said on Thursday. The miner suspended its rail operations after the incident on Monday that wrecked track and left a locomotive and wagons upturned nearly 120 km (75 miles) south of Australia's iron ore export hub of Port Hedland. Asked whether BHP would invoke force majeure, Mackenzie told media after the company's annual general meeting in South Australia that he did not expect the miner would let down any of its customers.

    BHP expects derailed train to impact its Australian iron ore exports

    Mining giant BHP Billiton expects some interruption to its Australian iron ore exports after a nearly 3-km-long train loaded with the commodity was forcibly derailed this week after running away en route to a key shipping hub. One of BHP's customers in China, a steel producer, has, however, not yet received any notice from the miner. "We have a long-term contract with BHP and we haven't received a notification so far," said an official at the mill in southern China who declined to be named as he was not authorised to speak to media.

    [$$] Train Stopping: BHP Derails Runaway Locomotive From 800 Miles Away

    Monday’s journey was meant to be a regular rail movement from BHP’s iron-ore mines in Western Australia’s Pilbara region, where temperatures can top 100 degrees Fahrenheit in summer and vast distances separate communities. BHP is taking a more patient approach to the technology, as it worries about congestion on the more than 800-mile rail network that it operates in the Pilbara.

Stockpiles at Port Hedland will be used over the coming days to maintain port operations, BHP said in a statement.

    BHP to return $10.4 billion in buyback, special dividend bonanza

    Investors cheered the massive return and the split between a $5.2 billion off-market buyback and a $5.2 billion special dividend, sending BHP's Australian shares up as much as 6.2 percent. BHP had promised to return all of the net proceeds from the $10.8 billion sale of its U.S. shale business to shareholders when the deal was announced in July. "It's good that 100 percent is going back to shareholders," said Stephen Butel, an analyst with Platypus Asset Management, which owns shares in BHP.

    [$$] BHP to Return $10.4 Billion to Shareholders

    Ltd. said it would hand $10.4 billion to shareholders via a stock buyback and special dividend, as the miner continues to face a campaign against its strategy and structure by activist investor Elliott Management Corp. Analysts said the stock gains reflected an earlier payout to shareholders than many in the market had expected. Like many of its competitors in the global resources industry, BHP had used cash generated during earlier booms in commodity prices to buy assets or invest in expanding its mining operations from Australia to North America.

    [$$] BP Earnings More Than Double

    PLC (BP.LN) said Tuesday that its third-quarter replacement cost profit more than doubled and that it expects to fund its $10.5 billion acquisition of assets from miner BHP Billiton PLC (BLT.LN) entirely from available cash. The British oil giant said its replacement cost profit--a number similar to the net income that U.S. companies report--for the three months ended Sept. 30 rose to $3.09 billion, from $1.38 billion in the year-earlier period. The company said it expects to fund its acquisition of BHP’s onshore U.S. oil and gas units entirely in available funds, reflecting confidence in its cash generation, rather than using equity for the deserved consideration.

    Even the World's Biggest Miners Are Switching to Electric Vehicles

    Taking about 30 minutes to drive from top to bottom, there’s ample opportunity for the world’s biggest miner to test electric SUVs in a bid to cut both costs and pollution, including potentially harmful diesel emissions. BHP will make a decision by the middle of next year whether to extend the program across a 240-strong fleet of light vehicles at the South Australia operation. “Getting mines to be completely diesel free is our end goal,” said Andrew Draffin, a project manager at Voltra, a supplier that’s provided BHP with adapted Toyota LandCruiser models fitted with an electric motor and lithium-ion batteries.

    BHP trims forecasts for U.S., China GDP growth due to trade conflict

    The world's biggest miner BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) has trimmed its expectations of global growth for next year and 2020 due to a "lose-lose" result from the U.S.-China trade conflict, a senior executive said on Tuesday. BHP's modelling suggested the trade row would cut both Chinese and U.S. GDP growth by about a half to three quarters of a percentage point, Chief Commercial Officer Arnoud Balhuizen told the IMARC mining conference in Melbourne. "Which confirms that the trade protection will create a lose-lose outcome," he said.
