Geokinetics names 2 new board members

Geokinetics Inc., a company provides seismic-data services for the oil and gas industry, named two new board members Tuesday.

The new board members are PGS Chief Financial Officer Gottfred Langseth and Anthony Tripodo, chief financial officer of Helix Energy Solutions Group Inc., an offshore energy company based in Houston.

The appointments satisfy the terms of the company's recent acquisition of the onshore seismic data business of Norwegian oilfield services company Petroleum Geo-Services ASA. Geokinetics announced in December it would buy the unit in a cash and stock deal valued at $210 million.

Geokinetics shares were unchanged at $7.50 in morning trading.
