Britain faces 'intense' terror threat, fresh attacks inevitable, says United Kingdom spy chief

BHP Billiton Limited has a dividend payout ratio of 78.9% meaning its dividend is now covered by earnings, but may not be in the future if the company's earnings tumble. The figures take into account iron ore produced for the company and its joint venture partners at its mines.

Production at its iron ore unit fell 3% year-on-year to 56m tonnes for the three months to end-September.

Overall petroleum production fell 8% on year to 50 million barrels of oil equivalent, with US onshore volumes down 16% to 17 million barrels, due in part to what the company said was natural field decline as well as the impact of Hurricane Harvey in the Gulf of Mexico. The Copper segment is involved in mining of copper, silver, lead, zinc, molybdenum, uranium and gold.

In August, BHP recorded a net profit of US$5.89 billion in the 12 months through June, a sharp improvement from a year-earlier loss of US$6.39 billion when BHP absorbed an impairment hit on its onshore USA oil-and-gas business and a charge for the fatal 2015 dam failure at the Samarco iron-ore operation in Brazil. The Company extracts and processes minerals, oil and gas from its production operations located primarily in Australia and the Americas. Its businesses include Minerals Australia, Minerals Americas, Petroleum and Marketing. It manages product distribution through its global logistics chain, including freight and pipeline transportation.
