BHP Petrohawk Losses Deepen as Gas Prices Fall

11/07/2012 | 06:24pm US/Eastern
   By Rhiannon Hoyle 
 

SYDNEY--Losses at BHP Billiton Ltd.'s (>> BHP Billiton Limited) U.S. shale operation Petrohawk Energy Corp. this year have deepened amid continued weakness in natural-gas markets.

BHP on Thursday reported a loss from continuing operations before income tax of US$211.5 million for the nine months to Sep. 30 for Petrohawk, compared with profit of US$201.3 million in the year-earlier period.

In a statement to the stock exchange, BHP said the average price for natural gas in the nine months to the end of September had nearly halved year-on-year, contributing to the deepening losses.

Petrohawk had recorded a third-quarter loss of US$55 million, the statement added, a sharp turnaround from profit of US$127 million in the same quarter of 2011.
