Disclaimer Forward-looking statements This presentation contains forward-looking statements, including statements regarding: trends in commodity prices and currency exchange rates; demand for commodities; plans, strategies and objectives of management; closure or divestment of certain operations or facilities (including associated costs); anticipated production or construction commencement dates; capital costs and scheduling; operating costs and shortages of materials and skilled employees; anticipated productive lives of projects, mines and facilities; provisions and contingent liabilities; tax and regulatory developments. Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of terminology including, but not limited to, ‘intend’, ‘aim’, ‘project’, ‘anticipate’, ‘estimate’, ‘plan’, ‘believe’, ‘expect’, ‘may’, ‘should’, ‘will’, ‘continue’, ‘annualised’ or similar words. These statements discuss future expectations concerning the results of operations or financial condition, or provide other forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are not guarantees or predictions of future performance, and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond our control, and which may cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed in the statements contained in this presentation. Readers are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements. For example, future revenues from our operations, projects or mines described in this presentation will be based, in part, upon the market price of the minerals, metals or petroleum produced, which may vary significantly from current levels. These variations, if materially adverse, may affect the timing or the feasibility of the development of a particular project, the expansion of certain facilities or mines, or the continuation of existing operations. Other factors that may affect the actual construction or production commencement dates, costs or production output and anticipated lives of operations, mines or facilities include our ability to profitably produce and transport the minerals, petroleum and/or metals extracted to applicable markets; the impact of foreign currency exchange rates on the market prices of the minerals, petroleum or metals we produce; activities of government authorities in some of the countries where we are exploring or developing these projects, facilities or mines, including increases in taxes, changes in environmental and other regulations and political uncertainty; labour unrest; and other factors identified in the risk factors discussed in BHP’s filings with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘SEC’) (including in Annual Reports on Form 20-F) which are available on the SEC’s website at www.sec.gov. Except as required by applicable regulations or by law, the Group does not undertake any obligation to publicly update or review any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or future events. Past performance cannot be relied on as a guide to future performance. Non-IFRS and other financial information BHP results are reported under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). This presentation may also include certain non-IFRS (also referred to as alternate performance measures) and other measures including Underlying attributable profit, Underlying EBITDA (all references to EBITDA refer to Underlying EBITDA), Underlying EBIT, Adjusted effective tax rate, Controllable cash costs, Free cash flow, Gearing ratio, Net debt, Net operating assets, Operating assets free cash flow, Principal factors that affect Underlying EBITDA, Underlying basic earnings/(loss) per share, Underlying EBITDA margin and Underlying return on capital employed (ROCE) (all references to return on capital employed refer to Underlying return on capital employed), Underlying return on invested capital (ROIC). These measures are used internally by management to assess the performance of our business and segments, make decisions on the allocation of our resources and assess operational management. Non-IFRS and other measures have not been subject to audit or review and should not be considered as an indication of or alternative to an IFRS measure of profitability, financial performance or liquidity.

Statement of Petroleum resources Petroleum resources The estimates of Conventional Petroleum reserves and contingent resources contained in this presentation are on a Net interest basis and are based on, and fairly represent, information and supporting documentation prepared under the supervision of Mr A. G. Gadgil, who is employed by BHP. Mr Gadgil is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers and has the required qualifications and experience to act as a qualified petroleum reserves and resources evaluator under the ASX Listing Rules. This presentation is issued with the prior written consent of Mr Gadgil who agrees with the form and context in which the petroleum reserves and contingent resources are presented. Aggregates of reserves and contingent resources estimates contained in this presentation have been calculated by arithmetic summation of field/project estimates by category. The aggregate 1P reserves may be conservative due to the portfolio effects of arithmetic summation. Reserves and contingent resources estimates contained in this presentation have been estimated using deterministic methodology with the exception of the North West Shelf gas asset in Australia where probabilistic methodology has been utilised to estimate and aggregate reserves and contingent resources for the reservoirs dedicated to the gas project only. The probabilistic based portion of these reserves totals 23 MMboe (total boe conversion is based on the following: 6,000 scf of natural gas equals 1 boe) and represents approximately three per cent of our total reported conventional proved reserves. The reserves and contingent resources contained in this presentation are inclusive of fuel required for operations. The respective amounts of fuel for each category at 30 June 2018 are: 1P reserves: 910 MMboe (62 MMboe fuel), 2P reserves: 1,213 MMboe (81 MMboe fuel), 2C contingent resources: 1,512 MMboe (69 MMboe fuel), annual production 125 MMboe (5 MMboe fuel). At 30 June 2017 the respective amounts were 2P reserves 1,306 MMboe (74 MMboe fuel), 2C contingent resources: 1,235 MMboe (fuel 68 MMboe). The custody transfer point(s)/point(s) of sale applicable for each field or project are the reference point for reserves and contingent resources. Reserves and contingent resources estimates contained in this presentation have not been adjusted for risk. Unless noted otherwise, reserves and contingent resources are as at 30 June 2018. In this presentation millions of barrels of oil equivalent are abbreviated as MMboe and billions of barrels of oil equivalent are abbreviated as Bboe. BHP estimates proved reserve volumes according to SEC disclosure regulations and files these in our annual Form 20-F with the SEC. All unproved volumes are estimated using SPE-PRMS guidelines which allow escalations to prices and costs, and as such, would be on a different basis than that prescribed by the SEC, and are therefore excluded from our SEC filings. Non-proved estimates are inherently more uncertain than proved.

Mineral Resources and Competent Persons statement Competent Person Statement The information in this presentation that relates to the FY2017 and FY2013 Mineral Resources (inclusive of Ore Reserves) were first reported by the Company in compliance with the ‘Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves, 2012’ (‘The JORC Code 2012 Edition’) in the 2017 BHP Annual Report and the 2013 BHP Billiton Annual Report respectively. Both reports are available to view on www.bhp.com. The detailed breakdown of Mineral Resources for all assets are shown in the Annual Reports on 100% basis, with corresponding BHP interest. Compilation of Mineral Resources information from 2013 is included in this presentation to provide a portfolio comparison between these two dates. Divested assets are no longer owned or operated by BHP and the majority of these were demerged into South32 in May 2015. Other divestments are noted in the corresponding BHP Annual Reports. In relation to the 2017 Mineral Resources, the company confirms that it is not aware of any new information or data that materially affects the Mineral Resources information included in the original 2017 market announcement and, in the case of estimates of Mineral Resources, that all material assumptions and technical parameters underpinning the estimates in the relevant market announcement continue to apply and have not materially changed. The company confirms that the form and context in which the Competent Persons’ findings are presented have not been materially modified from the original market announcement. The information in this presentation that relates to Mineral or Coal Resources is based on information compiled by: L Moharana (MAusIMM) for Western Australia Iron Ore (WAIO) and Divested assets (Alumar including MRN, Worsley, GEMCO, Hotazel); R Macpherson (MAIG) for Minerals Australia Energy Coal, Metallurgical Coal - Operations and Projects including Queensland CQCA-JV, Gregory JV and BHP Mitsui Coal and Projects and Divested assets (Illawarra Coal and BECSA); M Menicheli (MAusIMM) for Nickel West Operations and Nickel Colombia (Cerro Matoso); C Badenhorst (MAusIMM) for Olympic Dam; M Williams (MAusIMM) for Escondida District, Pampa Norte, Antamina, Pinto Valley, Cerrejón, New Mexico Coal, Samarco; J McElroy (MAusIMM) for Minerals Americas Jansen Project and M Furness (MAusIMM) for Cannington. All of the people listed above are full-time employees of BHP and have sufficient experience that is relevant to the style of mineralisation and type of deposit under consideration and to the activity which they are undertaking to qualify as Competent Persons as defined in the 2012 Edition of the ‘Australasian Code for Reporting of Exploration Results, Mineral Resources and Ore Reserves’ and consent to the inclusion in the presentation of the matters based on this information in the form and context in which it appears. Resources and metal equivalent calculations Please refer to detailed tables in the Appendix, slides 40 to 42, for Mineral Resource classifications (100% basis) for each asset / deposit included in the average copper equivalent resource size per minerals asset calculations on slide 22 of this presentation. Resource base (equity share basis) is converted to copper equivalent tonnes using FY2017 average realised prices as reported in the BHP results for the year ended 30 June 2017 for Metallurgical Coal, Energy Coal, Iron Ore, Copper and Nickel. The conversion of U3O8, Au, Ag, Zn and Pb use prices as reported in the BHP 2017 US Securities and Exchange Commission Form 20-F. Potash price used is US$216.55/t, Molybdenum US$7.41/lb, Aluminium US$1,771.26/t and Manganese Ore US$151.20/t. The reporting of Mineral Resources for polymetallic deposits in terms of metal equivalents (a single equivalent grade of one major metal) is based on FY2017 average realised prices as reported in the BHP results for the year ended 30 June 2017 for Cu and for other metals the BHP 2013 and 2017 Form 20-F submissions (unless otherwise stated). The metallurgical recoveries applied are those footnoted for the respective operations as footnoted in the corresponding Annual Reports from 2013 and 2017. It is the company’s opinion that all elements included in the metal equivalent calculation have a reasonable potential to be recovered and sold. No mining or metallurgical modifying factors were applied to the results. The following copper equivalent grade calculations are listed below. 2013 calculations Olympic Dam: CuEq = Cu % + (U3O8 kg/t x 1.064) + (Au g/t x 0.459) + (Ag g/t x 0.0089); Spence: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 3.039); Antamina Sulphide Cu-only: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 2.048) + (Ag g/t x 0.0097); Antamina Sulphide Cu-Zn: CuEq = Cu % + (Zn % x 0.45) + (Ag g/t x 0.0096); Cannington: PbEq = Pb % + (Ag g/t x 0.043) + (Zn % x 0.95), Molybdenum price used is US$11.18/lb. 2017 calculations Olympic Dam: CuEq = Cu % + (U3O8 kg/t x 0.978) + (Au g/t x 0.547) + (Ag g/t x 0.0077); Escondida: CuEq = Cu % + (Au g/t x 0.703); Spence: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 2.917); Antamina Sulphide Cu-only: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 1.966) + (Ag g/t x 0.0084); Antamina Sulphide Cu- Zn: CuEq = Cu % + (Zn % x 0.36) + (Ag g/t x 0.0083).

The reporting of Mineral Resources for polymetallic deposits in terms of metal equivalents (a single equivalent grade of one major metal) is based on FY2017 average realised prices as reported in the BHP results for the year ended 30 June 2017 for Cu and for other metals the BHP 2013 and 2017 Form 20-F submissions (unless otherwise stated). The metallurgical recoveries applied are those footnoted for the respective operations as footnoted in the corresponding Annual Reports from 2013 and 2017. It is the company’s opinion that all elements included in the metal equivalent calculation have a reasonable potential to be recovered and sold. No mining or metallurgical modifying factors were applied to the results. The following copper equivalent grade calculations are listed below. 2013 calculations Olympic Dam: CuEq = Cu % + (U3O8 kg/t x 1.064) + (Au g/t x 0.459) + (Ag g/t x 0.0089); Spence: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 3.039); Antamina Sulphide Cu-only: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 2.048) + (Ag g/t x 0.0097); Antamina Sulphide Cu-Zn: CuEq = Cu % + (Zn % x 0.45) + (Ag g/t x 0.0096); Cannington: PbEq = Pb % + (Ag g/t x 0.043) + (Zn % x 0.95), Molybdenum price used is US$11.18/lb. 2017 calculations Olympic Dam: CuEq = Cu % + (U3O8 kg/t x 0.978) + (Au g/t x 0.547) + (Ag g/t x 0.0077); Escondida: CuEq = Cu % + (Au g/t x 0.703); Spence: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 2.917); Antamina Sulphide Cu-only: CuEq = Cu % + (Mo % x 1.966) + (Ag g/t x 0.0084); Antamina Sulphide Cu- Zn: CuEq = Cu % + (Zn % x 0.36) + (Ag g/t x 0.0083).

Footnotes 1. High potential injuries: injury events where there was the potential for a fatality. 2. Occupational Exposure Limits (OELs): in FY18, a new five-year target was established to achieve a 50% reduction in the number of workers potentially exposed to respirable silica, diesel particulate matter and coal mine dust, as compared with our FY17 baseline (discounting protection by personal protective equipment). 3. Withdrawal: defined as water withdrawn and intended for use (in accordance with ‘A Practical Guide to Consistent Water Reporting’, ICMM (2017)) consistent with WAF inputs; fresh water is defined as ‘waters other than sea water’, irrespective of quality. The FY17 baseline for the purposes of this target has been adjusted to account for the materiality of the strike affecting water withdrawals at Escondida in FY17. The revised baseline is 173,000 megalitres. 4. Adjusted effective tax: excludes the influence of exchange rate movements and exceptional items. 5. Underlying EBITDA margin: BHP data presented on a total operations basis up to FY14 and on a continuing operations basis from FY15 onwards: peer group comprises Anglo American, Rio Tinto and Vale. 6. Segment EBITDA: percentage contribution to Group Underlying EBITDA, excluding Group and unallocated items. 7. Iron ore: unit cost, C1 unit cost excluding third party royalties, EBITDA margin and ROCE refer to Western Australia Iron Ore. 8. Copper: operated copper assets (Escondida, Pampa Norte and Olympic Dam). 9. Price: net of price-linked costs. 10. Controllable cash costs: includes unfavourable fixed cost dilution at Olympic Dam (smelter maintenance campaign) and Conventional Petroleum (natural field decline), challenging operating conditions at two Queensland Coal mines (Broadmeadow and Blackwater); and a favourable change in estimated recoverable copper in the Escondida sulphide leach pad in the prior period, partially offset by lower labour and contractor costs at WAIO. 11. Non-cash: includes net deferred stripping costs. 12. Other: includes one-off items and other items (including profit/loss from equity accounted investments). 13. Commodity basket index: represents an EBITDA weighted average of key commodity prices, reweighted each financial year. 14. Dividends: related to final dividend determined by the Board for FY17 and paid in September 2017, and dividend determined by the Board for H1 FY18 and paid in March 2018. 15. NCIs: dividends paid to non-controlling interests of US$1,604 million predominantly relate to Escondida. 16. Average debt maturity: calculated based on first call date of Hybrid issuances, and includes subsidiary debt. 17. Non-cash fair value movement: relates to foreign exchange variance due to the revaluation of local currency denominated debt to USD and movements in interest rates. 18. Onshore US FY19 guidance: until divestment completion, expected by the end of October 2018, we intend to operate five rigs in Onshore US and incur capital expenditure at an annualised rate broadly consistent with the 2018 financial year. 19. Antamina and Cerrejón: equity accounted investments; average capital employed represents BHP’s equity interest. Antamina ROCE truncated for illustrative purposes. 20. Onshore US sale: less customary completion adjustments; subject to customary regulatory approvals and conditions precedent. 21. Conventional Petroleum exploration; ROCE truncated for illustrative purposes. 22. Divestments: announced or completed from FY13 onwards. 23. Unrisked NPV and average IRRs: based on Global Metals, Mining and Steel Conference presentation on 15 May 2018. 24. Escondida FY19 unit cost: guidance includes end of negotiation bonus at USD/CLP 663. 25. Finding and Development costs: includes reported exploration plus Conventional Petroleum capital expenditure, divided by proven reserves added (extensions and discoveries plus improved recovery plus revision). BHP F&D costs calculated on a financial year basis (FY08-FY17). Peers calculated on calendar year basis (CY08-CY17). 26. Finding and Development costs: source: BHP: own analysis.

Sector include all companies (excluding BHP) reported by WoodMackenzie. 27. Exploration wells and success rate: refers to the number of wells completed at any time during the respective year, regardless of when drilling was initiated. A productive well is an exploratory or extension well that is not a dry well. Productive wells include wells in which hydrocarbons were encountered and the drilling or completion of which, has been suspended pending further drilling. Excludes wells that had mechanical issues (Burrokeet-1 and Wildling-1 in FY17 and Bongos-1 in FY19) where the opportunities were tested by a subsequent well. 28.
