Songa Offshore SE : Rightsizing of onshore organization

Songa Offshore SE (the Company) is now transforming from being largely a
projects organization to an optimized operating organization.

The Company today announced that as part of this process, the overall number
of onshore employees and contractors, is proposed to be reduced by up to 200,
of this 76 employees and 124 contractors, reflecting the current market. The
Company will centralize the support functions out of Norway and the plan is
to close offices in Aberdeen and South Korea. Headcount reductions will
primarily take place in the project organization in South Korea and the
project supporting organizations in Stavanger and Aberdeen. The process will
also include a rightsizing of the operating and staff organizations in
Cyprus, Stavanger, Oslo and Bergen.

The corresponding annual reduction in expenses in total will amount to
approximately USD 30 million.

The offshore organization is not affected by this process.

"This is a very important and necessary adjustment of our organisation to
secure Songa Offshore's competitiveness and sustainability in an extremely
challenging drilling market", says CEO Bjørnar Iversen.
