Financial Results Overview

Total operating revenues for the third quarter were $384.5 million (Q2: $418.5
million). The 8.1% decrease is primarily related to the early termination of
the West Capella, the West Capricorn operating on standby rate for a full
quarter, the conclusion of the West Vencedor contract and downtime on the
West Vela and West Polaris.

Total operating expenses for the third quarter were $180.5 million (Q2: $192.6
million). The 6.3% decrease is primarily due to reduced operating costs on
the West Capella, West Capricorn and West Vencedor while the rigs are idle
and efficiencies achieved on operating expenses for vessels in operation.

Operating income was $204.0 million (Q2: $225.9 million). Lower revenues were
partially offset by reduced operating costs.

Financial and other items resulted in an expense of $37.3 million for the
third quarter (Q2: expense of $70.1 million). The decline in the expense is
primarily due to a gain on mark-to-market valuation of derivatives of $5.7
million (Q2: loss of $28.3 million). The cash element was an expense of
$12.0 million in the period.

Income before tax was $166.7 million for the third quarter (Q2: $155.8
million). Income taxes for the third quarter were $13.9 million (Q2: $43.6
million). The decrease is primarily due to the impact of tax law changes and
provisions taken in the prior period. Cash tax paid in the quarter was $12.5
million compared to $12.1 million in the second quarter.

Net income attributable to Seadrill Partners LLC Members was $83.2 million for
the third quarter (Q2: $59.8 million).

Distributable cash flow was $105.2 million for Seadrill Partners' third
quarter (Q2: 98.8 million) giving a coverage ratio of 13.98x for the third
quarter.

Distribution declared for the period was $0.10 per unit, equivalent to an
annual distribution of $0.40.
