SDRL - Seadrill announces second quarter 2013 results

Consolidated revenues for SeaDrill in the second quarter of 2013 were US$1,268 million compared to US$1,265 million in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was despite the sale of the tender rig business, which operated for only 30 days in the quarter, resulting in a US$100 million revenue decline from 1Q 2013. Overall improvement in fleet performance more than offset this revenue reduction.

Operating profit for the quarter was US$507 million compared to US$552 million in the preceding quarter. The decrease is driven by gain on sale of the West Janus in the first quarter, offset by lower operating and SG&A expenses during the second quarter.
