BHP Billiton may consider further asset sales under CEO Andrew Mackenzie and chairman Ken MacKenzie. BHP has previously flagged plans to divest its US shale assets, and other assets that could potentially be sold include its one-sixth stake in the North West Shelf LNG project, thermal coal mines, nickel mines in Western Australia and its potash project in Canada. The North West Shelf project was the biggest contributor to the earnings of BHP’s petroleum division in 2016.

CORPORATES
BHP BILLITON LIMITED – ASX BHP, WOODSIDE PETROLEUM LIMITED – ASX WPL, RIO TINTO LIMITED – ASX RIO, YANCOAL AUSTRALIA LIMITED – ASX YAL, ELLIOTT MANAGEMENT CORPORATION
