BHP's Escondida copper mine in Chile, the world's largest, said on Wednesday that it has invited its powerful workers' union to start early talks on a new collective labour contract. Last year, a more than month-long strike at Escondida ended with workers opting to extend their previous contract through July 31 of this year instead of replacing it. "This invitation seeks to open a space of dialogue and respect in which the current challenges of the company and the legitimate interest of its workers can be address together," the company said in a statement without proposing a date.
British shares gave up early gains and finished in negative territory on Wednesday as points gained by Prudential and mining stocks were overturned by simmering fears of a global trade war that pushed Wall Street into the red. The blue chip FTSE 100 (.FTSE) index closed down 0.09 percent at 7,132.69 points, slightly above the pan-European STOXX 600 (.STOXX), down 0.15 percent while the Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) was losing about 1 percent at the same time. "The positive mood in Europe has waned after U.S. markets turned lower," David Madden from CMC Markets said.

Energy firm Woodside Petroleum on Monday said that its plan to buy ExxonMobil Corp's 50-percent interest in Australia's Scarborough gas field had been given the go-ahead by BHP Billiton, which partly owns the development. Australia's Woodside last month said it had agreed to pay $744 million for ExxonMobil's stake in the project that has been stuck on the drawing board for nearly 40 years, taking its hold to 75 percent. The deal on the remote, deepwater gas field off the coast of the state of Western Australia is expected to conclude by the end of this quarter, Woodside said in a statement.

Offshore oil may be the next big thing again for the energy industry as the high cost production technique can now be profitable at current lower oil prices.
Global miner BHP (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) will consider swapping certain onshore oil and gas assets with competitors' offshore assets, as part of its effort to exit U.S. shale formations, Steve Pastor, BHP's president for petroleum operations, said on Wednesday. BHP, facing calls from activist investor Elliott Advisors tomake changes to its business, had previously said it plans to sell its onshore U.S. shale assets. “We’re also talking with some counterparties in very specific circumstances about the potential to do some asset swaps and pick up some high quality tier 1 acreage," Pastor said, referring to the most promising offshore assets.
Developers behind Mexico's flagship deepwater oil venture Trion are considering using a floating facility to handle production from the massive field in the Gulf, the companies said on Tuesday. The decision would allow output from the Pemex and BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) project to be offloaded to tankers, instead of transporting it via pipelines to the United States. A floating production storage and offloading facility (FPSO) could be more expensive, but offers greater flexibility in export destinations.
President Donald Trump’s plans to slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports is a black day for the world and business, according to the biggest mining company.
Britain's top share index recovered a little lost ground on Monday thanks to gains among mining companies and commodity stocks which had been among the worst hit after U.S. President Trump threatened higher tariffs on steel and aluminium imports. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) was up 0.7 percent at 7,103.30 points by 1008 GMT, in line with a broadly positive European market. UK stocks also underperformed European peers with Germany's DAX (.GDAXI) ending the day up 1.5 percent and the STOXX 600 (.STOXX) up 1.1 percent.
The UK's top share index hit its lowest level in more than a year on Friday on concerns over trade disputes and as a speech by Prime Minister Theresa May left many unconvinced that a post-Brexit deal with the EU was any closer. At its close, the FTSE was down 1.5 percent at 7,069.90 points at its lowest since December 2016, unnerved by President Donald Trump's promise to tax aluminium and steel imports. While initial reaction to May's speech was muted, both the blue chip FTSE 100 and sterling drifted lower as it ended with the prim minister saying "no deal is still better than a bad deal in Brexit talks".
British shares fell on Wednesday, dragged down by mining companies after weak factory data from China, while comments from U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell reignited expectations of more interest rate hikes in the United States. The FTSE 100 (.FTSE) was down 0.7 percent at 7,231.91 points at its close, tracking further weakness on Wall Street after Powell gave an upbeat view on the U.S. economy and said data had strengthened his confidence on inflation. A drop in the pound provided some shortlived relief for the FTSE after the European Union's chief negotiator Michel Barnier said a transition deal was not guaranteed and the prime minister said the EU's draft legal text would undermine Britain.
