Aug 08, 2016: BHP Billiton opens Mobile Applications Hub in Shanghai
BHP Billiton today officially launched its new Mobile Applications Hub in Shanghai that will develop applications for mobile devices to help improve communications and productivity across the Company.

BHP Billiton Chief Technology Officer Diane Jurgens said the new hub is one example of the potential for technology innovation to improve the way we work that benefits our people and the Company.

"Mobile applications delivered on smartphones and tablets will allow our people to work more flexibly, productively and safely. Operators in our underground mines through to procurement in our head office can access to and respond to real-time information as and when they need it, no matter where they are," she said.

"The team working in Shanghai will develop a range of mobile applications that could include the capability for operators to re-plan crew work in the field, check equipment maintenance requirements and location, immediately report potential safety problems or even check where and when people are travelling."

Ms Jurgens said Shanghai is the ideal location for the Company's new US$5 million Mobile Applications Hub. It will initially employ 50 technology application designers who will operate from a specifically designed 'incubator' workshop located with BHP Billiton's offices.

"Shanghai is widely recognised as a global centre for mobile application development with a vibrant tech culture. It has a wealth of highly experienced, skilled talent and leading universities offering excellent programs in Technology and Engineering," she said.

The Mobile Application hub is one of three centres being established to foster technology innovation that can then be trialled and tested before potentially being more widely deployed across the Company.

Jul 28, 2016: BHP Billiton: Update Samarco
BHP Billiton announced today t hat it will recognise a provision in the range of US$1.1 billion to US$1.3 billion, which is approximately equivalent to a 50 per cent share of the current estimate of Samarco's funding obligations under the terms of the Framework Agreement (Agreement) entered into on 2 March 2016. This reflects the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the nature and timing of a potential restart of Samarco's operations. The associated income statement charge will be recognised as an exceptional item in the June 2016 half-year, together with direct costs of approximately US$100 million (post tax).

Samarco and its shareholders continue to believe that the Agreement provides an effective long-term framework to remediate and compensate for the impacts of the Samarco dam failure.

Jun 21, 2016: BHP Billiton provides an update on its Coal business
BHP Billiton today outlined the path for its Coal business to improve returns by unlocking productivity, reducing costs and releasing latent capacity.

President Operations Minerals Australia, Mike Henry, told investors at a Coal briefing that the Company saw significant opportunity to further increase the competitiveness of its coal operations - both in terms of costs and volumes.

"Rather than waiting for higher prices, we have been deliberate in shaping a quality, focused portfolio that allows us to deliver value in challenging market conditions and positions us well for an expected longer-term improvement in coal market fundamentals," Mr Henry said.

BHP Billiton's Coal business has delivered over US$3 billion of productivity gains since 2012 and is targeting another US$600 million by the end of the 2017 financial year.

"While cost compression has been evident across the industry, we continue to work hard under our new operating model to improve our performance," Mr Henry said.

"Even in today's difficult environment, all of our operations remain cash positive."

BHP Billiton can also grow its Coal business by releasing low-cost, latent capacity as well as by exercising high quality growth options if market conditions call for it.

The Group's strong position in coal will be further supported by improving market dynamics.

"The developing world needs steel, steel needs coking coal, and we have the strongest resource position in the seaborne market," Mr Henry said.

Jun 21, 2016: BHP Billiton: Growth Opportunities of Trans-Pacific Partnership
BHP Billiton CEO Andrew Mackenzie today highlighted the potential trade opportunities with Asia in a speech to the Asia Society in New York.

"The social and economic forces across Asia are unstoppable. China, India and Indonesia account for 40 per cent of the world's population and by 2050 each will be in the top four of the world's largest economies," Mr Mackenzie said.

"Asian countries, in particular China, are brimming with the possibilities of progress and will ultimately lead the world into the next phase of innovation across many industries and services.

"For example, China's investment in research and development has already overtaken the EU and will match US levels within four years."

Mr Mackenzie said there is an enormous opportunity for Western countries to capture new markets in Asia but it needs to be supported by greater economic integration.

"We need more free trade champions and to promote regional initiatives like the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP). The TPP promotes transparency, sets common standards, stimulates innovation and reduces commercial tensions between nations," he said.

"China is not currently part of the TPP and I would advocate for their inclusion in future iterations.

"If both the US and China are connected through this partnership, the world will be drawn together and stabilised. The TPP is an enormous opportunity and for either country not to participate is a missed opportunity for the global economy."
