Transocean gets federal court notice to cease Brazil operations

VERNIER, SWITZERLAND: Transocean Ltd announced that at approximately noon Rio De Janeiro time, September 27, 2012, the federal court in Rio de Janeiro served the company with a preliminary injunction requiring that it cease operations in Brazil within 30 calendar days from the date of service. The company is vigorously pursuing the overturn or suspension of the preliminary injunction, including through an appeal to the Superior Court of Justice. Absent relief from the courts, Transocean will be required to comply with the preliminary injunction.

Transocean currently has 10 rigs under contract for work in Brazil, with nine currently in country and is evaluating rig contracts and collaborating with customers to determine appropriate actions with respect to operations. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the company’s operations in Brazil accounted for approximately 11 per cent of consolidated operating revenues.
