Geokinetics Conference Call on Trinity II Tragedy

Geokinetics held a conference call this morning and shared information with media about the Trinity II tragedy in the Bay of Campeche.
Pres. and CEO Richard F. Miles said the body of the missing offshore worker from Australia was found yesterday. Aaron Houweling lost his grip within the first hours after abandoning the liftboat. He likely couldn't hold on from the force of Tropical Storm Nate's 12-foot waves and 110 mph winds, according to a navy admiral who oversaw the rescue operation.

On board the liftboat were three Geokinetics employees, three contractors, and four Trinity Liftboat employees. Trinity, of New Iberia, operated the liftboat.
Miles said this was a strong and rapidly developing storm that resulted in unusual weather conditions. He said safety is important to Geokinetics and they truly feel for all crew members and their families.
