BHP Billiton Limited Research Report

On October 22, 2013, BHP Billiton Limited (BHP Billiton) reported its
operational review for the September 2013 quarter. During the quarter, the
total petroleum production for the September 2013 quarter was 62.7 million
barrels of oil equivalent, an increase of 2% YoY. During the quarter, liquids
production increased 16% YoY to 26.0 million barrels of oil equivalent,
underpinned by significant growth in Onshore US volumes and the start-up of a
new production well at Atlantis. "Our pursuit of productivity gains and
operating excellence is already yielding strong results. There is no better
example than in our Iron Ore business, where the deployment of mobile crushing
units and the continued debottlenecking of the supply chain has underpinned a
five million tonne increase in Western Australia Iron Ore's production
guidance for the 2014 financial year," said Andrew Mackenzie, CEO of BHP
Billiton. The Full Research Report on BHP Billiton Limited - including full

are making good progress with Chinese customs officials to resolve matters
with purchased concentrate at the border," said Kay Priestly, CEO of Turquoise
