BHP is a world-leading resources company. They are among the world’s top producers of major commodities, including iron ore, metallurgical coal, and copper. BHP also has substantial interests in oil, gas and energy coal. Their purpose is to create long-term shareholder value through the discovery, acquisition, development and marketing of natural resources. Which they achieve through their strategy: to own and operate large, long-life, low-cost, expandable, upstream assets diversified by commodity, geography and market.
"My hope and full expectation is that we're going to bring a step change in maintenance processes to Saskatchewan. That's part of our plan - to be a lower-cost producer - but it's also part of our plan to attract people."
