"“Government potash tax revenues typically rise more from price, rather than volume increases,” BMO Nesbitt Burns fertilizer analyst Joel Jackson said.
For the province, the concern is that if BHP overproduces, “that could have a detrimental effect on price,” Saskatchewan Energy Minister Bill Boyd said in an interview this week.
BHP says its acquisition of Potash would bring economic benefits and has promised to comply with a Saskatchewan law requiring the company’s head office to remain in the province. Canada’s federal government said it is reviewing the takeover to assess its benefits for the country.
Mr. Boyd said BHP officials told his government this week that the company hasn’t yet made an official decision on whether to pull out of Canpotex. BHP said in regulatory filings on Friday that it plans to work toward an agreement with Canpotex members that “ultimately permits BHP Billiton to market its potash independently.”
