BHP Billiton’s US shale assets are tipped to fetch at least $US10bn. Peter O’Connor of Shaw & Partners notes that this equates to about eight per cent of BHP’s market capitalisation. Energy companies such as Chevron and Anadarko are likely to consider some of the shale assets, which have also attracted interest from private equity firms. The private equity sector has ramped up its investment in energy assets in recent years.
