    BP Is Front-Runner to Buy BHP's U.S. Shale Unit

    BP Plc has emerged as the front-runner to buy BHP Billiton Ltd.’s onshore oil and gas operations in the U.S., according to a person familiar with the matter. The London-based oil major has made the highest offer for the assets, which BHP prefers selling in a single package, said the person, who asked to not be identified because the matter isn’t public. The Australian mining conglomerate, based in Melbourne, received initial offers about two months ago from BP, Chevron Corp. and Royal Dutch Shell Plc, among others, people familiar with the matter said in June.

    Exclusive - BP in lead to acquire BHP's U.S. onshore shale assets: sources

    The move represents a big bet by BP on U.S. oil and gas production at a time when energy prices are rebounding. It would allow it to significantly rebalance its business with oil production, after focusing largely on natural gas assets. BHP said in August it aimed to sell onshore shale assets in the Eagle Ford, Permian, Haynesville and Fayetteville basins, which it acquired at the height of the oil boom.

    U.K. stocks end higher after biggest selloff in 4 months

    U.K. stocks closed higher on Tuesday, with investors picking up stocks that were beaten down in the prior session’s selloff, which was driven by fresh worries about a potential global trade war. Tesco and Sainsbury’s, however, bucked the positive trend after data on supermarket sales in the U.K. showed both losing market share. With little on the economic calendar to drive markets on Tuesday, analysts suggested the moderate rise in London stocks was merely a rebound after Monday’s plunge rather than anything fundamentally new to cheer investors.
