24 mins listen August 20, 2021
The largest mining company in the world, BHP Group, has made three massive moves this week. First, it said it would sell its oil and gas operations to oil and gas company Woodside Petroleum in exchange for shares that it will distribute to its own investors.

And third, it will collapse it’s dual listing across London and Australia and focus only on its Australia listing.
