BHP’s iron ore export capacity at Port Hedland is currently 290 million tonnes per annum, but the resources group will seek approval to lift this by up to 40 million tonnes. This could increase BHP’s revenue from its Pilbara operations by around $5bn a year, based on the current iron ore price of around $US80 per tonne. Hayden Bairstow of Macquarie says BHP could increase its Pilbara exports to 300mtpa without the need for ‘material’ capital expenditure. Fortescue Metals Group has also flagged plans to increase its Pilbara export volumes.
