Report summary

BHP Billiton's petroleum business came intense scrutiny in 2017. The oil price crash has forced the mining giant to re-assess how its oil and gas assets fit within its wider strategy. The company's decision to end its foray into unconventional shale, and instead focus on its international deepwater assets means 2018 will be a year of change.
