    BHP expects China's growth to ease modestly over short term - CEO​

    "As we watch the outcomes of the Chinese Party Congress with interest, we expect growth in China to ease modestly over the short-term, as monetary policy tightens and housing and automotive markets soften," Mackenzie said. Uncertainty over China’s demand for imported ore as its steel industry undergoes structural change and speculative trading in contracts has seen prices this year swing between $53 and $95 a tonne. "Over the long term, we believe fiscal policy and infrastructure investment will be conducive to growth, especially with the Belt and Road Initiative and rich in opportunity for natural resources," Mackenzie said.

    Transocean: Not As Bad As It Looks?

    Last night, Transocean (RIG) announced that it had signed a two-year contract for its Deepwater Invictus rig with BHP Billiton (BHP). Evercore ISI analyst James West and team contend that the day rate implied by the contract is "near breakeven." He explains: While the firm $106 million backlog implies a disappointing near breakeven $145kpd UDW dayrate, we are encouraged by the contract's term (two year plus three one-year options) as it signals operators may finally be taking advantage of the industry's record trough dayrates and securing longer term contracts. The Zephirin Group's Longdley Zephirin contends that Transocean's day rate is better than that: According to management, the new crew will be agreed on at contract signing.

    BHP Billiton on Track to Hit Copper, Iron Ore Production Records

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AU) is on track to hit production records in copper and iron ore this financial year. Iron ore production slipped 3% year-on-year in the September quarter to 64 million tonnes due to maintenance and a June fire at its Mt Whaleback screening plant. BHP left full-year production guidance of 275 million to 280 million tonnes unchanged. Copper production rose 14% to 404,000 tonnes, in line with expectations, as the Los Colorados expansion project at Escondida started up.

    Rio Tinto iron ore shipments climb on rail upgrade, on track for annual target

    Global miner Rio Tinto on Tuesday said it had lifted its third quarter iron ore shipments by 6 percent after modernizing its haulage railway in Australia's outback, but cut its production target for copper due to delays at a major mine in Chile. Rio Tinto, which competes with Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd in the seaborne-traded iron ore market, maintained its target to ship 330 million tonnes of the steelmaking ingredient in 2017. The strong quarter comes after a sluggish first half when bad weather and rail track maintenance crimped iron ore production.
