GeoMet Provides Update of Its Natural Gas Hedging Position

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 2, 2009) - GeoMet, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMET) announced today that it has further increased its natural gas hedges through the addition of new costless swaps for the periods and at the prices listed below:

   Period               Price       Volume (MMBtu)
   ------               -----       --------------
-- Summer 2010          $6.295      642,000
-- Winter 2010 - 2011   $7.266      906,000

Darby Seré, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, said, "While we have seen improvement in natural gas prices recently, volatility remains high and we believe there is still considerable price risk over the near term. The strength of pricing in the futures market allowed us to layer in these additional swaps at prices that should provide a solid foundation for the Company's operations during this period."

An updated schedule of GeoMet's natural gas hedge position as of this date is attached.
