What does BHP Group Limited (BHP) do?

Aussie blue chips don't get much bigger than this.

Founded in 1851 and headquartered in Melbourne, BHP Group Limited is a leading global resources company specialising in the exploration, development, production and sales of oil and gas in Australia, the United States, Algeria and Trinidad & Tobago. It also mines for iron ore, copper, coal and nickel in Australia; copper in Chile and the United States; iron ore in Brazil; potash in Canada; and copper and zinc in Peru.

The company is currently focused on four major projects:

  • Atlantis Phase 3 — Situated in the Gulf of Mexico, the project is a new subsea production system tying back to BHP’s Atlantis facility. The project has the capacity to produce up to 38,000 gross barrels of oil per day.

  • Spence Growth Option (SGO) — SGO is located 162 kilometres north-east of Antofagasta in northern Chile. BHP is currently ramping the project up to full capacity.  A new 95 ktpd (thousand tonnes per day) concentrator has been installed to increase SGO’s copper concentrate production by approximately 185 ktpa (thousand tonnes per annum) in the first 10 years of operation and extend the mining operations by more than 50 years.

  • South Flank — Located in WA's Pilbara region, 156 kilometres north-west of Newman and nine kilometres south of BHP’s Mining Area C, South Flank will soon become the largest operating iron ore hub in the world. It is expected to produce 145 million tonnes of iron ore each year.

  • Ruby — A joint venture between BHP and The National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago, this project is located offshore in the Block 3(a) development area of Trinidad and Tobago. Five production wells have been tied back into existing processing facilities. The project has the capacity to produce up to 16,000 gross barrels of oil per day and 80 million gross standard cubic feet of natural gas per day. 

In addition to its exploration, development, and production efforts, BHP also provides towing, freight, marketing and trading, marketing support, finance, administrative, and other services.

BHP operates out of 90 locations around the world.

Is BHP a profitable company?

Yes, very much so.

The company’s net profits grew from A$4.78b in FY2018 to A$12.33b in FY2019. It dropped a little in FY2020 to A$11.87b only to fire back up to A$15.15b in FY2021.

Between FY2020 and FY2021, BHP’s free cash flow skyrocketed 110% from A$13.14b to A$27.65b.

Is BHP a good buy?

Some investors see BHP stock as an excellent long-term investment due to its financial strength and its ability to pay dividends nonstop for over four decades.

Other investors are wary of the stock’s cyclical nature. As the price of commodities can go up and down, so can the BHP stock price. Tensions between Australia and China, inflation and other macroeconomic pressures are also a consideration for these investors at this time.
