The company produces major commodities, including iron ore, metallurgical and energy coal, conventional and unconventional oil and gas, copper, aluminium, manganese, uranium, nickel, and silver. It extracts and processes minerals, oil and gas from its production operations located primarily in Australia, the Americas, and southern Africa. The company sells its products worldwide with sales and marketing taking place principally through Singapore and Houston, the United States (U.S.). Businesses The company’s assets, operations, and interests are separated into five business units, including Petroleum and Potash; Copper; Iron Ore; Coal; and Aluminium, Manganese, and Nickel. Petroleum and Potash business This business comprises conventional and non-conventional operations located in six countries throughout the world and a potash project based in Saskatchewan, Canada. This business includes exploration, development, production, and marketing activities. The company has a resource base concentrated in the U.S. and Australia. The company’s core production operations are primarily located in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, Onshore U.S., and Australia. It also has operations in Trinidad and Tobago, Pakistan, Algeria, and the United Kingdom. The company produces crude oil and condensate, natural gas, and natural gas liquids (NGLs). Its Onshore U.S. operations evolved from the acquisition of the Fayetteville shale assets from Chesapeake Energy Corporation and the acquisition of Petrohawk Energy Corporation. Gulf of Mexico (U.S.) The company operates two fields in the Gulf of Mexico (Shenzi with a 44 per cent interest and Neptune with a 35 per cent interest) and holds non-operating interests in three other fields (Atlantis with a 44 per cent interest, Mad Dog with a 23.9 per cent interest, and Genesis with a 4.95 per cent interest). The company has on-going infill drilling in its Gulf of Mexico fields. It completed water injection development projects at Shenzi and Atlantis in 2013. All the fields are located between 155 and 210 kilometers offshore of the U.S. state of Louisiana. The company also owns 25 per cent and 22 per cent, respectively, of the companies that own and operate the Caesar oil pipeline and the Cleopatra gas pipeline. Onshore U.S. The company produces oil, condensate, NGLs, and natural gas in four shale areas, such as Eagle Ford, Permian, Haynesville, and Fayetteville. The Eagle Ford area has two sections, Black Hawk and Hawkville. Much of the Eagle Ford and Permian areas are focused on hydrocarbon liquids. The Haynesville and Fayetteville areas are focused on natural gas. The company’s combined leasehold acreage onshore in the U.S. is approximately 1.2 million net acres. Its ownership interests in those leases range from approximately 1 per cent to 100 per cent.
