GENEVA, March 8, 2013 -- Weatherford International Ltd. (NYSE / Euronext Paris /
SIX: WFT) today announces that the audit committee of its board of directors
approved the engagement of KPMG LLP as its independent registered public
accounting firm for the year ending December 31, 2013.  The committee determined
that as a matter of good corporate governance, it is appropriate at this time to
rotate to a different firm to serve as the company's auditors.  This appointment
is subject to ratification by Weatherford's shareholders at the 2013 Annual
General Meeting.  At that meeting, the Company also expects to propose the
election by our shareholders of KPMG AG as our Swiss statutory auditor for the
year ending December 31, 2013.
