Morgan Stanley, Barclays, Citigroup, J.P. Morgan and Wells Fargo Securities are acting as joint book-running managers for the offering. Credit Suisse, Goldman, Sachs & Co., BofA Merrill Lynch, DNB Markets, MUFG, Credit Agricole CIB and Standard Chartered are acting as co-managers. The offering is being made only by means of a prospectus.

Transocean Partners LLC was recently formed by Transocean Ltd. to own, operate and acquire modern, technologically advanced offshore drilling rigs.
