Seadrill has received a letter of award from an international E&P operator for the ultra-deepwater drillship West Gemini under construction. The letter of award represents a two-year contract with an estimated contract value of approximately US $345 million, including mobilization fee. Furthermore, the operator has the right to extend the contract for an additional year at a similar dayrate. West Gemini is expected to be completed early July 2010 and will subsequently relocate from Korea to West Africa to commence operations under the two-year contract.
