HOUSTON, Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Geokinetics Inc., one of the largest independent international land and shallow water seismic companies, announced today that it has signed a binding agreement with CGG for the purchase of CGG's North American Land seismic contract acquisition business.
Through this agreement, CGG will contribute its North America Land Contract activities (excluding its land multi-client and monitoring businesses) in exchange for a minority equity stake in Geokinetics.
"We are pleased to announce that Geokinetics has secured the necessary financing to support this transaction. The benefits from this combination are quite compelling," said David J.

As part of the transaction, CGG will provide its patented technology in support of the seismic crews. Geokinetics will also benefit from a preferred relationship with the CGG North American Land Multi-Client Group.
This transaction provides Geokinetics the scale, focus and flexibility to attain the next level of providing quality service to a broader customer base. "The combination of our industry-leading seismic acquisition teams will better position our company in the North American marketplace, as we integrate our experience, knowledge and deployable technology," added Crowley.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.
