Seadrill dispose of the jack-up rig West Ceres

Seadrill has today exercised its right to repurchase the jack-up drilling rig West Ceres from a subsidiary of Ship Finance International Ltd, for the pre-agreed price of US$135.5 million. Furthermore, Seadrill has subsequently entered into a memorandum of agreement to sell the jack-up rig to a reputable Middle East drilling company for a consideration of US$175 million plus an additional US$ 3 million for inventory related to West Ceres. Seadrill is expected to record a gain on sale of approximately US$20 million in the third quarter 2009. Closing of the agreement and transfer of ownership of the unit is scheduled to early July 2009.
