    Chile's Escondida invites union to early labour talks

    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.

    Chile's Codelco receives approval for $1 bln desalination plant

    Chile's state-owned mining company Codelco, the largest copper producer in the world, received environmental approval this week to build a $1 billion desalination plant to supply water to its operations in the country's northern region. The go-ahead from the Antofagasta region's environmental regulator will allow the company to expand its Radomiro Tomic mine and advance with an ambitious investment plan in its water-intensive mining operations in one of the driest deserts in the world. The plant would be the second-largest desalination plant in the South American country, behind the one supplying BHP's Escondida copper mine, the largest in the world.

    Mexican offshore Trion project partners weigh floating oil facility

    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.

    Oil like gas: S&P Global Platts bags Asian LNG price benchmark

    Asia's booming liquefied natural gas (LNG) market has seen exchanges and commodity price agencies vie to become the region's leading price benchmark. With over 70 percent of global LNG consumed in Asia, and growth concentrated in this region, it adds a potentially lucrative business to the company's already profitable operations providing oil price assessments. Platts says LNG swaps volumes, settled against its Japan Korea Marker (JKM) LNG price assessments, quadrupled in 2017 to 50,266 lots, equivalent to around 170 tankers of LNG and the growth has continued this year.

    BHP won't move Singapore marketing hub even if Australia cuts tax - CEO

    BHP Billiton (BHP.AX) (BLT.L) will not move its low tax-paying Singapore marketing hub even if Australia goes ahead with plans to cut corporate taxes, Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said on Thursday. BHP's Singapore office is the focus of a long-running fight with Australia's tax office, which argues the company is shifting profit to Singapore on the sales of its mostly Australian products to minimise tax. Mackenzie reiterated the company has to base its marketing operations in Singapore to be close to its customers, most of whom are in Asia, and would not move it to Australia.

    Pressure remains on BHP despite rise in earnings

    MELBOURNE/LONDON (Reuters) - Global miner BHP, seeking to fend off activist investor Elliott Advisors, handed an extra $800 million (573.07 million pounds)to shareholders but its share price slid on Tuesday after costs rose and interim results fell short of forecasts. All the major miners have recovered strongly as commodity prices have rebounded from the 2015-16 crash. BHP must also contend with Elliott, which has a stake of around 5 percent in its London arm, and has made a series of demands that it says will increase shareholder returns.
