SBM Offshore - Yme Platform Update 
SCHIEDAM, THE NETHERLANDS -- (Marketwire) -- 10/26/12 --  SBM
Offshore confirms that Talisman and SBM Offshore have today presented
a plan to the Petroleum Safety Authority Norway regarding repairs of
the grouting of
the legs of the Yme platform. 
The repairs follow the decision by the operator of the platform
Talisman to de-man the platform and that the grouting in the legs
needs repair. The repairs are scheduled to be completed before the
end of this year. 
After completion of the repairs, people will be allowed back onto the
platform
to inspect the consequences of the platform having been
unattended for a long
period of time.  Subsequently, Talisman and SBM
Offshore will be able to agree
the plan forward for the platform.
