HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - September 24, 2009) - GeoMet, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMET) announced today that it has further increased its natural gas hedges through the addition of new costless collars for 4,000 MMBtu of natural gas per day for the periods and at the prices listed below:

           Period                Floor         Cap     Volume (MMBtu)
           ------                -----        -----    --------------
