Seadrill Limited近日收到了来自Pemex Exploracion有关West Pegasus的钻探合同终止通知，该通知将于2016年8月16日起生效。Seadrill正在对该终止的缘由进行论辩。
根据协议，合资公司Seadrill and Seamex Limited与Fintech将在一年内缩减5座自升式钻塔的作业成本。对现有合同成本的缩减幅度将视两年延期合同的具体情况而定。
一旦合同终止，Seadrill and Seamex将立即恢复West Pegasus相关运营工作。此外，Seadrill将提起预期费用的报销申请。

Seadrill Limited has received a notice of termination from Pemex Exploracion y Servicios for the West Pegasus drilling contract effective 16 August 2016. Seadrill has disputed the grounds for termination and is reviewing its legal options.
During the second quarter of 2015 Seadrill signed a provisional commitment for a two year extension to the Contract with Pemex for the West Pegasus. In conjunction with the extension, the dayrate for the remaining term of the initial contract was reduced. The extension of the Contract was finalized during the first quarter of 2016.
As part of this agreement, Seadrill and Seamex Limited, our 50% owned joint venture with Fintech, agreed to reduce the dayrate on five jack-ups for a period of 365 days. The agreement to reduce the dayrates of the existing contracts was contingent upon final confirmation of the two year extension of the West Pegasus by Pemex management.
In the event of termination, Seadrill and Seamex are entitled to recover the dayrate concessions as well as the demobilization for the West Pegasus. In addition, Seadrill will seek reimbursement of certain costs incurred in anticipation of the extension.
