                             BHP OPERATIONAL REVIEW
                     FOR THE QUARTER ENDED 30 SEPTEMBER 2019

.    Group copper equivalent production decreased by 3% in the September 2019
     quarter largely due to planned maintenance across a number of operations
     and natural field decline in Petroleum. Volumes for the 2020 financial year
     are expected to be slightly higher than last year.

.    All production and unit cost guidance (based on exchange rates of AUD/USD
     0.70 and USD/CLP 683) remains unchanged for the 2020 financial year.

.    All major projects under development are tracking to plan, with the Ruby
     oil and gas development in Trinidad and Tobago approved during the
     September 2019 quarter.

.    In Petroleum, the Trion 3-DEL appraisal well in Mexico encountered oil in the reservoirs 
     up dip from all previous well intersections. Phase 4 of our deepwater drilling campaign in 
     Trinidad and Tobago was completed, evaluation and development planning studies of the
     discoveries are ongoing. 

.    Further high-grade mineralised intercepts of copper, with associated gold,
     uranium and silver, were confirmed during the second phase of the drilling
     program at Oak Dam in South Australia. The next drilling phase is expected
     to commence in November 2019.

BHP Chief Executive Officer, Andrew Mackenzie, said: "We delivered a solid start
to the 2020 financial year through ongoing strong operational performance across
our portfolio. While Group production for the quarter decreased slightly due to
the expected impacts of planned maintenance and natural field decline in
Petroleum, guidance remains unchanged and we are on track to deliver slightly
higher volumes than last financial year. The South Flank iron ore project is 50 per cent 
complete, will all our major projects on schedule and budget. We achieved further encouraging 
exploration results in Petroleum and at the OakDam copper prospect."

Major development projects

During the September 2019 quarter, the BHP Board approved an investment of
US$283 million (BHP share) for the development of the Ruby oil and gas project
in Trinidad and Tobago.

At the end of the September 2019 quarter, BHP had six major projects under
development in petroleum, copper, iron ore and potash, with a combined budget of
US$11.4 billion over the life of the projects.

The Jansen Stage 1 potash project in Canada will be presented to the Board for final
investment decision by February 2021. In order to make a final investment decision, work on
engineering to support project planning and on finalising the port
solution is required, and the Board has approved US$144 million for these activities. 
An additional US$201 million in funding was approved to further derisk
the project, focussing on the mine's scope of work, advancing other
engineering and procurement activities, and preparation works for underground
infrastructure. This will enable an efficient transition of the project team
between the study and execution phase, should the project be approved. The
release of funding to the project will be staged over this period.

Corporate update

As outlined in our 2019 financial year results announcement, we expect a US$3.8
billion increase in net debt over the 2020 financial year from the application
of IFRS 16 'Leases', new leases commencing in the year and a change in our
definition of net debt to include fair value of derivatives related to net debt.

Susan Kilsby has been appointed as the Chairman of the Remuneration Committee
and John Mogford has been appointed as the Chairman of the Sustainability
Committee, both with effect from the conclusion of the BHP Group Limited Annual
General Meeting on 7 November 2019. Susan has been a Non-executive Director of
BHP since April 2019 and John has been a Non-executive Director of BHP since
October 2017.

Petroleum - Total petroleum production decreased by 11 per cent to 29 MMboe.
Guidance for the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at between 110 and 116
MMboe.

Crude oil, condensate and natural gas liquids production declined by 11 per cent
to 13 MMboe due to the impact of Tropical Storm Barry in the Gulf of Mexico and
natural field decline across the portfolio. This decline was partially offset by
higher uptime at Pyrenees following the 70 day dry dock maintenance during the
same period last year.

Natural gas production decreased by 11 per cent to 100 bcf, reflecting a
decrease in tax barrels at Trinidad and Tobago in accordance with the terms of
our Production Sharing Contract, planned maintenance at North West Shelf and
natural field decline across the portfolio.

achieve first production in the 2021 calendar year.

On 3 September 2019, the Minerva gas field reached end-of-field life and
production ceased at the Minerva Gas Plant. As announced in the June 2018
quarter, BHP agreed to sell its 90 per cent interest in the Minerva Gas Plant to
the Casino Henry Joint Venture after the cessation of gas processing from the
Minerva gas field. The sale is subject to customary closing conditions and is
expected to close during the December 2019 quarter.

In Mexico, we spud the Trion 3-DEL appraisal well on 9 July 2019. We are
encouraged by the preliminary results, with the well encountering oil in the
reservoirs up dip from all previous well intersections. Evaluation and analysis
is ongoing. No further appraisal wells are anticipated.

In Trinidad and Tobago, we drilled two additional exploration wells in our
Northern licences as a part of Phase 4 of our deepwater drilling campaign. The
Boom-1 well was spud on 28 August 2019 and encountered hydrocarbons. Evaluation 
and analysis is ongoing. The Carnival-1 well was spud on 30 September 2019 and reached total
depth after the end of the September 2019 quarter. The well was a dry hole. This
completed the exploration program on our Trinidad and Tobago Northern licences.
Evaluation and development planning studies of the discoveries in the North are
ongoing. Following Carnival-1, the Deepwater Invictus rig will return to the US
Gulf of Mexico to complete regulatory abandonment work on Shenzi appraisal and
exploration boreholes.

In the US Gulf of Mexico, in August 2019, we were the apparent high bidder on
blocks GC124 and GC168 in the central Gulf of Mexico, building on our Green
Canyon position. Additionally, we were the apparent high bidder on 18 additional
blocks/(2)/, which would expand our position in the western Gulf of Mexico.

In Australia, the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator approved the
surrender of the WA-255-P exploration permit, following our technical assessment
of remaining potential.

Petroleum exploration expenditure for the September 2019 quarter was US$162
million, of which US$69 million was expensed. A US$0.7 billion exploration and
appraisal program is being executed for the 2020 financial year.

Copper - Total copper production increased by five per cent to 430 kt. Guidance
for the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at between 1,705 and 1,820 kt.

Escondida copper production decreased by one per cent to 293 kt, with record
concentrator throughput of 369 ktpd in the quarter offsetting expected grade
decline. Ongoing improvements in maintenance implemented as part of our
Transformation agenda contributed to the higher throughput, with the rate
increasing to 377 ktpd in September 2019. Guidance for the 2020 financial year
remains unchanged at between 1,160 and 1,230 kt, underpinned by an expected
uplift in concentrator throughput performance versus the prior year, partly
offset by an approximately five per cent reduction in copper grade of
concentrator feed.

Pampa Norte copper production increased by 47 per cent to 64 kt, reflecting the
impact of a fire at the electro-winning plant at Spence in the September 2018
quarter. Guidance for the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at between 230
and 250 kt, including expected grade decline of approximately 10 per cent.

Olympic Dam copper production increased by five per cent to 35 kt as a result of
the prior period acid plant outage, partially offset by the impact of planned
preparatory work undertaken in the September 2019 quarter related to the
replacement of the refinery crane. The preparatory work is the most significant
part of the project, with the physical replacement and commissioning of the
refinery crane scheduled for the March 2020 quarter. Underground operations, the
mill and the smelter performed to plan, enabling the build of anode stocks for
processing through the refinery in the subsequent three quarters. Guidance for
the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at between 180 and 205 kt.

Antamina copper production increased by two per cent to 38 kt and zinc
production decreased by 33 per cent to 20 kt, reflecting higher copper
head grades and lower zinc head grades. Guidance for the 2020 financial 
year remains unchanged at approximately 135 kt for copper and approximately 
110 kt for zinc.

Iron ore - Total iron ore production decreased by one per cent to 61 Mt (69 Mt
on a 100 per cent basis). Guidance for the 2020 financial year remains unchanged
at between 242 and 253 Mt (273 and 286 Mt on a 100 per cent basis).

At WAIO, lower volumes reflected significant planned maintenance at Port
Hedland, including a major car dumper maintenance program, to further improve
port reliability and provide a stable base for our tightly coupled supply chain.
Major planned car dumper maintenance was completed on 16 October 2019, while
the port maintenance program continues through the 2020 financial year. Mine
operations continued to deliver consistent performance during the quarter.

Mining and processing operations at Samarco remain suspended following the
failure of the Fundao tailings dam and Santarem water dam on 5 November 2015.

In September 2019, BHP divested its 45.5 per cent interest in the Nimba iron
ore project in Guinea to High Power Exploration Inc. (HPX).

              Energy coal (kt).............. 5,647   (15%)   (24%)

Metallurgical coal - Metallurgical coal production was down 10 per cent to 9 Mt
(16 Mt on a 100 per cent basis). Guidance for the 2020 financial year remains
unchanged at between 41 and 45 Mt (73 and 79 Mt on a 100 per cent basis) with
volumes weighted to the last three quarters of the financial year.

At Queensland Coal, production was impacted by the planned major wash plant
shutdowns at Goonyella, Peak Downs and Caval Ridge. This was partially offset by
increased feed rates at the Peak Downs wash plant following a change in mine
sequencing.

Energy coal - Energy coal production decreased by 15 per cent to 6 Mt. Guidance
for the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at between 24 and 26 Mt.

New South Wales Energy Coal production decreased by 10 per cent as a result of
the change in product strategy to focus on higher quality products. Guidance for
the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at between 15 and 17 Mt.

Cerrejon production decreased by 23 per cent due to the impact of adverse
weather. Guidance for the 2020 financial year remains unchanged at approximately 9 Mt.

Nickel - Nickel West production increased by one per cent to 22 kt, reflecting
higher volumes at the Kalgoorlie smelter following the fire in September 2018.

Major quadrennial maintenance shutdowns at the Kwinana refinery and the
Kalgoorlie smelter are scheduled for the December 2019 quarter. Guidance for the
2020 financial year remains unchanged, with production expected to be broadly in
line with the 2019 financial year.

Potash - The Jansen Stage 1 potash project will be presented to the Board for
final investment decision by February 2021. In order to make a final investment decision, work on
engineering to support project planning and on finalising the port solution is required, 
and the Board has approved US$144 million for these activities. An additional US$201 million 
in funding was approved to further derisk the project, focussing on the mine's
scope of work, advancing other engineering and procurement activities, and
preparation works for underground infrastructure. This will enable an efficient transition of the 
project team between the study and execution phase, should the project be approved. The 
release of funding to the project will be staged over this period.

Minerals exploration

Minerals exploration expenditure for the September 2019 quarter was US$44
million, of which US$38 million was expensed. Greenfield minerals exploration is
predominantly focused on advancing copper targets within Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru,
Canada, South Australia and the south-west United States.

At Oak Dam in South Australia, the second phase of the drilling program
delivered encouraging results. Further high-grade mineralised intercepts of
copper, with associated gold, uranium and silver, were confirmed. Multiple
intervals ranging between 0.25 and 5.77 per cent copper were identified by
laboratory assay results from 10 diamond drill holes, totalling 12,441 metres.
For further details refer to Appendix 1.

The exploration project remains at an early stage with large parts of the target
still to be drill tested. The next phase of the drilling program is expected to
commence in November 2019.
