Regrets. Poorly timed $20 billion in shale -- BHP Billiton's outgoing chairman.
BHP Billiton Ltd. Chairman Jacques Nasser said the timing of its $20 billion spree into U.S. shale in 2011 was a misstep and that if the miner could turn the clock back it wouldn’t have invested in the assets.

BHP is considering further sales of its U.S. shale gas assets amid heightened scrutiny of the unit from shareholders.Most admired: ENI. Wood Mackenzie:
