   Hamilton, Bermuda, August 15, 2019 - "Seadrill Limited ("Seadrill" or 
the "Company) refers to the announcements made on May 1, 2019 in 
connection with the award of  drilling contracts by Qatar Petroleum to 
Gulf Drilling International ("GDI"). 
   Seadrill and GDI have entered into a 50:50 joint venture, GulfDrill, 
which will initially manage and operate five premium jackups in Qatar 
with Qatar Petroleum commencing throughout 2020. 
   The five firm well based contracts will have staggered commencements 
throughout 2020 with initial terms concluding in 2023 & 2024 
respectively. The total contract value is expected to be $656 million 
(including mobilization fees). Each contract has five single well 
options which could add up to an estimated 13.7 cumulative years of term 
and an additional contract value of $700 million. 
   GulfDrill will initially bareboat charter the West Telesto and West 
Castor from Seadrill and has secured bareboat charters for three 
additional units from a third-party shipyard. 
   Anton Dibowitz, CEO, commented: "We are excited to establish a 
significant presence in an important Jackup market and to partner with 
GDI. GulfDrill will give us the opportunity to improve our access to a 
market that is expected to show significant growth over the next years 
and strengthen our relationship with Qatar Petroleum."
