Seadrill refinances three high specification ultra-deepwater units

Seadrill - West Jupiter

Seadrill Limited has received commitments from 17 banks for a US$1.35 billion credit facility with a 5 year term and 10 year amortization profile to refinance the credit facilities secured by the West Pegasus, West Gemini, and West Orion. The transaction was initially launched as a US$900 million facility secured by two ultra-deepwater units.

However, due to strong interest from the Company's banking group, the facility was upsized to US$1.35 billion by including one additional ultra-deepwater unit in the collateral package. The new loan will be priced at a margin of Libor plus 2% and was substantially oversubscribed, demonstrating the strength of Seadrill's credit in the banking market. This refinancing will provide Seadrill with US$350 million in additional cash.

By concluding this transaction the Company will be left with one ultra-deepwater and four jack-up units to be refinanced in 2015 and one ultra-deepwater and four jack-up units in 2016, totalling US$1.2 billion to be refinanced.
