SYDNEY--BHP Group Ltd. (BHP.AU) said it has signed four new renewable-power agreements to meet energy demand for its Chilean copper operations and will record a roughly US$780-million provision linked to the cancellation of existing coal contracts. BHP said the new renewable energy contracts for its Escondida and Spence mines in Chile will be value accretive even including the provision, which will be recognized in its financial results for the first half of fiscal 2020. "These new renewable energy contracts will increase flexibility for our power portfolio and will ensure security of supply for our operations, while also reducing costs and displacing CO2 emissions," Daniel Malchuk, president of BHP Minerals Americas, said in a statement. The four contracts are estimated to reduce energy prices for the two operations by roughly 20%, he said. The separate contracts agreed by Escondida and Spence include 10- and 15-year terms with ENEL GeneraciĆ³n Chile and Colbun, and are due to start early next decade, BHP said.

SYDNEY--BHP Group Ltd. (BHP.AU) said production of commodities including iron ore, coal and petroleum was weaker during its first fiscal quarter, mainly because of planned maintenance work. BHP, the world's biggest mining company by market value, said Thursday it produced 61 million metric tons of iron ore during the three months through September, down 1% on the same period a year ago. Volumes were lower because of maintenance activities at the Port Hedland port facility on Australia's northwest coast aimed at improving reliability, it said. BHP is the world's third-biggest exporter of iron ore, which it produces from a vast network of mines in Australia's remote Pilbara mining region. At 29 million barrels of oil equivalent, the company produced 11% less petroleum in its first quarter than the year-earlier period. That was in big part due to planned maintenance at the North West Shelf operations and Tropical Storm Barry in the Gulf of Mexico, BHP said. Still, BHP reiterated its earlier annual production projections, including iron-ore production of 242-253 million tons and petroleum output of 110-116 million barrels. "While group production for the quarter decreased slightly due to the expected impacts of planned maintenance and natural field decline in petroleum, guidance remains unchanged and we are on track to deliver slightly higher volumes than last financial year," Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said. All major projects are also on schedule and on budget, he said. BHP said it expects the first stage of its Jansen potash project in North America to be presented to the board for final investment decision by February 2021. Among other commodities, the company reported a 5% lift in quarterly copper production as record throughput at Escondida's processing facilities offset planned maintenance at its Olympic Dam mine. It said output of metallurgical coal and energy coal fell by 10% and 15%, respectively, also due to plant maintenance and, for energy coal, a change in strategy to focus on higher quality products.

Https://www.marketscreener.com/BHP-GROUP-47281658/ratings/ Summary The company has strong fundamentals. More than 70% of listed companies have a lower mix of growth, profitability, debt and visibility criteria. For a short-term investment strategy, the company has poor fundamentals. Strengths Share prices are approaching a strong support area in daily data, which offers good timing for investors. Margins returned by the company are among the highest on the stock exchange list. Its core activity clears big profits. Thanks to a sound financial situation, the firm has significant leeway for investment. The company's attractive earnings multiples are brought to light by a P/E ratio at 10.42 for the current year. This company will be of major interest to investors in search of a high dividend stock. Over the last twelve months, the sales forecast has been frequently revised upwards. For the past year, analysts covering the stock have been revising their EPS expectations upwards in a significant manner. Weaknesses According to Standard & Poor's' forecast, revenue growth prospects are expected to be very low for the next fiscal years. Prospects from analysts covering the stock are not consistent. Such dispersed sales estimates confirm the poor visibility into the group's activity. The company's earnings releases usually do not meet expectations. For the last few months, analysts have been revising downwards their earnings forecast.

If you’ve £10,000 to invest in income stocks and don’t know where to start, I highly recommend taking a closer look at global mining giant BHP (LSE: BHP). What I love about BHP is that, after around five years of restructuring and cutting costs, it’s now spitting out cash at an impressive rate. For example, according to the company’s numbers for its financial year ended 30 June, net operating cash flow came in at an impressive $17.4bn. Free cash flow, which what’s left for shareholders after things like capital spending, was $10bn (around £8.2bn). That’s compared to BHP’s current market capitalisation of £85bn. This cash generation, coupled with the fact the mining group’s net debt has declined from around $27bn in 2016 to $9.2bn today, allowed management to declare a record final dividend totalling $1.3bn for the year. Cash flow giant: As long as BHP continues to do what it does best (pull rocks out the ground) and doesn’t get sidetracked by any costly expansion plans, I reckon it’s highly likely the company will continue to throw off cash for many years to come. City analysts believe the stock with yield 7% this year and also 6.2% next year, although these figures are based on regular dividends. As the company demonstrated earlier this year, it’s not averse to paying out special dividends when the time is right, so the actual level of income declared could be higher. That’s why I think this stock is worth a place in your portfolio today.

SYDNEY -- Global miners have spent years trying to shrink their carbon footprint. Now they face the threat of lost business if they don't help customers do the same. An Australian regulator recently told Peabody Energy Corp. and Glencore PLC they couldn't export coal from a new mine to countries that haven't signed the Paris climate agreement. Two other Australian coal projects were scuttled this year, partly out of concern about greenhouse-gas emissions overseas. Investors, too, are growing inquisitive about miners' records on customer emissions -- partly out of fear about potential liability. Miners are responding by increasing carbon-impact disclosure, forming alliances with buyers and investing in technology to cut emissions from steel mills and power plants. BHP Group Ltd. said its scope 3 emissions -- pollution mostly created when customers transport and use the commodities it produces -- are almost 40 times greater than those generated at its own operations. "We recognize that we must work with our suppliers, customers and others to reduce these emissions across the value chain to protect demand for our products," said Geoff Healy, chief external affairs officer at BHP, the world's largest mining company by market value. In the oil industry, facing similar pressures, there is friction among large companies over whether to commit to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions from products such as gasoline -- in big part because emissions vary hugely depending on the vehicle. "Saying you won't buy from someone is relatively easy. Saying you won't sell to someone is really hard," said Paul Mitchell, Ernst & Young's global mining and metals leader. "But if we ignore societal expectations, we do it at our peril." It is almost inevitable that miners' scope 3 emissions will be regulated in some way in the future, said Mr. Mitchell, who advises companies on such issues. The mining sector's carbon footprint made its debut in fourth place on an annual EY industry survey of business risks published this month. Taking action on emissions requires miners to work closely with China, the world's top buyer of iron ore and burner of coal. While China is committed to the Paris accord -- and authorities are pressing the phaseout of old factories and imposing stricter emissions standards for vehicles -- the economy remains dominated by state-owned giants that are often inefficient and hard to influence. Miners' experience in Australia illustrates what increased regulation could involve. The approval recently given for the Peabody-Glencore United Wambo coal mine came with a big condition: Some export markets must be blacklisted. The Independent Planning Commission for New South Wales state insisted thermal coal from the project go only to places where the Paris climate agreement or other similarly tough greenhouse-gas targets are in effect. That could rule out Taiwan, which relies on coal for roughly one-third of its energy use. "It may be a brave call by the commission, but it's gotten attention," said Debra Townsend, a partner at law firm King & Wood Mallesons. The miners said spurned customers might turn to lower-quality supplies from elsewhere, adding to global pollution, but the regulator decided the need to appropriately manage greenhouse-gas emissions overrode that worry. That decision is deeply concerning, a project spokesman said. New South Wales planning minister Rob Stokes said the state government is considering new guidelines or legislation to clarify how regulators treat scope 3 emissions. Threats to miners' business go beyond pushback on new projects. Consumer brands could stop buying commodities they consider too dirty, experts say. Many are already innovating with recycled materials. In July, BHP pledged to spend $400 million over five years to develop technologies that can reduce emissions both from its operations and its customers'. "We won't stop at the mine gate," BHP Chief Executive Andrew Mackenzie said. "Use of emissions-intensive products from the resources industry have contributed significantly to global warming." BHP plans next year to publish goals for addressing emissions. Rio Tinto PLC is also drawing up scenarios for decarbonizing the steel industry. Success could materially affect the value of its core iron-ore business, it said. Meantime, miners are touting their role in the shift to a low-carbon economy by producing commodities such as copper and nickel for wind turbines and electric vehicles. On Sept. 25, Rio Tinto joined with China's biggest steelmaker, China Baowu Steel Group Corp., and Beijing's Tsinghua University on a venture to explore ways to reduce the carbon footprint of the steel industry -- which accounts for up to 9% of direct emissions from fossil fuel use, according to the World Steel Association, an industry body. Rio Tinto is part of a group aiming to improve sustainability in the aluminum sector a9nd last year joined with Alcoa Corp. and customer Apple Inc. to develop a carbon-free smelting method. Those alliances attracted interest from China's steel-industry association in a meeting with Rio Tinto in Beijing in August.
