BHP Billiton growing in shale plays, Houston

Australia-based BHP Billiton Ltd. NYSE: BHP is the largest foreign investor in the U.S. shale boom and the 25th largest company in the world. But Rod Skaufel remains “amazed … people in the U.S. do not know who BHP Billiton is.”Skaufel is BHP’s North American shale president, and he oversees the division that now accounts for 42 percent of BHP’s total oil and gas production. BHP’s energy section used to be known for its deepwater offshore efforts, and that has changed dramatically in just three years.
