    BHP hires four banks for U.S. shale exit ahead of early 2018 deadline - sources

    LONDON/NEW YORK (Reuters) - BHP, the world's largest miner, has asked four investment banks to help it prepare for either a sale or spin-off of its underperforming U.S. shale oil and gas unit, with a view to taking a decision in early 2018, sources said. It has hired Barclays and Bank of America-Merrill Lynch to assess options for the sale of assets, including whether they would be sold together or separately, as they may appeal to different potential buyers, the sources said. It has also asked Citi and Goldman Sachs to research the potential spin-off of the unit into a new company, the sources added.

    Exxon Mobil Corp (XOM.N) and Chevron Corp (CVX.N) paid no tax in Australia in the 2016 financial year, the third year in a row, despite reporting billions of dollars in income from operations in the country, a report from the tax office showed on Thursday.

Exxon said it had no taxable income as it has invested nearly A$18 billion over the past few years on major projects including Gorgon and the Kipper Tuna Turrum field.

    Electric charge: Glencore bets big on car battery metals

    LONDON, Dec (Shanghai: 600875.SS - news) 5 (Reuters) - Glencore has increased production of the metals used to make electric car batteries faster than its major mining rivals, according to an industry-wide analysis that shows the scale of a strategy that has big prospective risks and rewards.

    Back to black? Australian industry prepares for possible summer power cuts

    MELBOURNE/SYDNEY (Reuters) - Some of Australia's biggest power users, including mining giant BHP, are taking steps to curb the impact of any repeat of crippling blackouts that hit last summer, worried about a grid that increasingly relies on wind power and old coal-fired plants. Australia's summer, which starts on Friday, is forecast to be hotter-than-normal in the nation's southeast, already helping double wholesale power prices in the wind-dependent state of South Australia to almost A$170 ($129) per megawatt hour (MWh) (SA-FLAT). The threat has prompted top global miner BHP Billiton (BHP.AX)(BLT.L) to install 30 megawatts of diesel generation at its Olympic Dam copper mine in South Australia, which was forced to close for two weeks last year after a state-wide blackout that cost it $105 million.
