BHP Earnings Nearly Triple as Coal Prices Run Hot



ADELAIDE, Australia—BHP Group Ltd. said its annual profit nearly tripled as it benefited from the sale of its petroleum business and strong commodity prices, but it signaled an uncertain outlook as rising interest rates take their toll on developed economies.

BHP, the world’s biggest miner by market value, on Tuesday reported a net profit of $30.90 billion for its fiscal year through June, up from a profit of $11.30 billion in the same period a year earlier. The result included an exceptional gain of $7.1 billion, largely because of the merger of its petroleum business with Woodside Energy Group Ltd.
