Rohstoff-Gigant BHP Billiton legt solide Produktionsergebnisse in einem anspruchsvollen Markt vor

Starke Zahlen vom weltgrößten Rohstoffproduzenten BHP Billiton (NYE:BHP). Die Produktionskosten in den gigantischen Eisenerzoperationen in Australien betragen nun weniger als 20 USD/Tonne und endlich gibt es auch eine Verzögerung im Hinblick auf die geplanten Kapazitäts-Expansion von Port Hedland, was den Eisenerzpreis umgehend befeuert..

  • BHP Billiton (NYSE:BHP) says it produced 59M metric tons of iron ore during the three months ending in March, up 20% Y/Y and 5% Q/Q, and raises its output forecast for the year through June by 2% to 230M tons.
  • In the first three quarters of its fiscal year, which ends June 30, BHP's output totaled 172.4M tons, up 17% Y/Y.
  • BHP says its Western Australian operations have produced a record 188M tons YTD (including the share of minority joint venture partners), and increases full-year guidance for those operations by 2% to 250M tons.
  • BHP also says it will defer a project designed to improve capacity for its inner harbor infrastructure at Port Hedland, which will slow its expansion to a targeted 290M ton capacity but at a lower cost.
  • BHP does not reveal the exact savings to be achieved by deferring the spending, but RBC Capital analysts estimate the amount at close to $US600M.
