What exactly does BHP Billiton do and who do they sell to?

Postby andrei » Wed May 08, 2013 9:29 pm

I know they're a mining company selling raw materials but who do they sell to?

Do they sell directly to gas stations (petroleum) ?

Their main industry is mining iron ore and they sell to anyone who wants it but mainly Japan and China.

Where they extract oil, they would sell it to oil refinery companies who need to refine the crude oil before it can be used in motor vehicles and it would be the refinery companies that supply the petrol stations and not BHP Billiton.

BHP Billiton is a global resources company and, these days, petroleum is just part of the company. Mining is their main focus with their portfolio including aluminium and nickel, diamonds, energy coal, iron ore, manganese, metallurgical coal, petroleum, and minerals exploration.

The company which owns gas (petrol) stations, BP (British Petroleum), has nothing to do with BHP Billiton.
