Hamilton, Bermuda, January 16, 2013 - Tullow plc has exercised its contractual
option to extend the contract for the ultra-deepwater semi-submersible rig West
Leo by two years from  May 2016 to May 2018. The West Leo is expected to carry
out operations in West Africa until the end of its contract in May 2018.

The potential contract revenue for the extension is estimated to
approximately US$450 million based on 97 percent utilization and includes a
performance bonus arrangement. This brings the total estimated contract value to
US$1.13 billion.

In line with the omnibus agreement terms and conditions between Seadrill and
Seadrill Partners, Seadrill is obligated to offer the West Leo to Seadrill
Partners at a fair market price.
