BHP Billiton chairman Ken MacKenzie has told shareholders that the resources group hopes to secure at least one deal for its US shale assets by the end of 2018. He said there has been strong interest in the assets due to factors such as US company tax cuts and a rise in the crude oil price. MacKenzie also signalled that BHP is likely to return some of the sale proceeds to shareholders via share buybacks or increased dividends. He also said there is still strong support at boardroom and executive level for BHP’s conventional oil assets.
