BHP Board Update and Director Declaration

In accordance with UK Listing Rule 9.6.14, BHP Group Plc advises that Terry Bowen,
Director of BHP Group Plc and BHP Group Limited (BHP), has been appointed to the
Board of Transurban Group (Transurban) with effect from 1 February 2020.

We apply a 9 year tenure guideline as part of Director succession planning and
therefore, as planned, Lindsay Maxsted will not stand for re-election at the 2020 BHP
Annual General Meetings. As a consequence, there will be a limited period of overlap
between Terry Bowen and Lindsay Maxsted on the Boards of BHP and Transurban.

As planned, Terry Bowen has also been appointed as Chair of BHP's Risk and Audit
Committee, effective from 1 May 2020. Lindsay Maxsted will remain a member of the
Risk and Audit Committee until his retirement from the BHP Board at or before the
2020 Annual General Meetings.

Mr Bowen is currently a Managing Partner & Head of the Operations Group at BGH
Capital. Upon joining the Transurban Board, Mr Bowen will reduce his responsibilities
at BGH, transitioning to a part-time role as Partner and Chair of the Operations
Group.
