Northern Ocean Ltd. ("Northern Ocean" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a
contract award for Deepsea Mira with a subsidiary of TotalEnergies SE for work
outside of the Norwegian Continental Shelf on a multi country drilling program,
initially commencing in West Africa. The contract is expected to commence in the
middle of the 2nd Quarter 2023 and has an estimated firm duration of 300 days
plus one 180-day option plus one 90-day option. The contract adds approximately
USD 135 million of firm revenue backlog to the Company (excluding bonus, options
and de-mobilization). The rig's operations manager, Odfjell Drilling Ltd, has
begun reactivation activities and mobilization preparation to meet the contract
expectations safely and efficiently.

To fund the reactivation costs, working capital and other general corporate
purposes, the Company has retained Fearnley Securities AS, DNB Markets, a part
of DNB Bank AS, Danske Bank Norwegian Branch and Pareto Securities AS as Joint
Lead Bookrunners (the "Managers") to advise on and effect a private placement
(the "Private Placement") of new shares, with the intention to raise gross
proceeds of approx. USD 45 million. The subscription price for the new shares
will be determined by the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board") based on an
accelerated book building process.

Scott McReaken (CEO of Northern Ocean) commented:

"This contract award from TotalEnergies marks a new beginning for the Company.
We have now secured full employment of our fleet while adding over USD 250
million in backlog since August. The Deepsea Bollsta has safely mobilized on
time in Namibia, and we are excited to repeat a transit to West Africa with the
Deepsea Mira for Total. Together with our manager, Odfjell Drilling, we continue
to build a position of strength in this recovering offshore drilling market."

About the Private Placement:

The Company has retained the Managers to advise on and effect a private
placement of new shares, with the intention to raise gross proceeds of approx.
USD 45 million. The subscription price for the new shares will be determined by
the Company's Board based on an accelerated book building process.

Hemen Holding Ltd, the Company's largest shareholder with approx. 39% has to the
Managers firmly expressed its intention of subscribing for shares in the Private
Placement to maintain its shareholding.

The Private Placement will be directed towards Norwegian and international
investors, subject to applicable exemptions from relevant registration, filing
and prospectus requirements, and subject to other applicable selling
restrictions. The minimum application and allocation amount has been set to the
NOK equivalent of EUR 100,000. The Company may however, at its sole discretion,
allocate amounts below EUR 100,000 to the extent exemptions from the prospectus
requirements in accordance with applicable regulations, including the Norwegian
Securities Trading Act and the prospectus regulation 2017/119 and ancillary
regulations, are available.

The application period for the Private Placement commences today, on 13 December
2022 at 16:30 CEST, and is expected to close no later than 14 December 2022 at
08:00 CEST. The Company, after consultation with the Managers, reserves the
right to at any time and in its sole discretion close or extend the application
period. If the application period is shortened or extended, other dates referred
to herein may be changed correspondingly.

Allocation of the shares in the Private Placement will be determined after the
expiry of the application period, and the final allocation will be made by the
Board at its sole discretion, following advice from the Managers. DVP settlement
will be facilitated by existing and unencumbered shares in the Company being
borrowed by Fearnley Securities AS from Hemen Holding Ltd. pursuant to a share
lending agreement between such parties and the Company, meaning that shares so
settled will be tradable from allocation. The Managers will settle the share
loan with new shares which will be redelivered to the lender on a separate ISIN
and transferred to the Company's ordinary ISIN and listed following approval of
the listing prospectus.

Completion of the Private Placement is subject to the corporate resolutions of
the Company required to implement the Private Placement, including a resolution
of the Board to proceed with the Private Placement following the expiry of the
application period and to increase the share capital of the Company.

The Company has considered the Private Placement in light of the equal treatment
obligations under applicable regulations and is of the opinion that the waiver
of the preferential rights inherent in a private placement, taking into
consideration the time, costs and risk of alternative methods of the securing
the desired funding, is in the common interest of the shareholders of the
