Returning More Value To Shareholders

  • Board approved a 50% increase in cash dividends to $7.5 million ($0.127 per share) per quarter, payable on September 8, 2022, a 4%8 dividend yield or 11% of net income in 2Q2022

  • Acquired 1.18 million shares, or 2% of total shares outstanding for $15.1 million since January 1, 2022 ($3.0 million in 1Q2022 and $12.1 million from April 1, 2022 to date)

Strengthened Corporate Governance

  • Shareholders re-elected five existing Directors and elected four new Directors at the AGM held on July 15, 2022

  • World-class, well-known oil and gas finders and developers, Brian Maxted and Carlos Macellari join the Board as Independent Directors. Two experienced Executive Directors, Andrés Ocampo and Marcela Vaca also joining, adding significant expertise to GeoPark’s Board of Directors

  • GeoPark’s Board is 66.7% independent

Upcoming Catalysts

  • Drilling 10-12 gross wells in 3Q2022, targeting development, appraisal, and exploration projects in the Llanos and Putumayo basins in Colombia and in the Oriente basin in Ecuador

  • Exploration drilling includes 2-3 wells in Llanos basin, 1-2 wells in the Putumayo basin and 1 well in the Oriente basin in Ecuador

In the CPO-5 block:

  • Initiating production tests in the Cante Flamenco exploration well (located 4 kilometers west of the Urraca 1 exploration well), where preliminary logging information indicated hydrocarbons in the Mirador formation

  • After Cante Flamenco, the drilling rig is expected to move to drill 1-2 development wells in the Indico field to further accelerate production growth

  • A second drilling rig is expected to start spudding wells in the southeastern part of the block in late August/early September 2022

Andrés Ocampo, Chief Executive Officer of GeoPark, said: "Our second quarter can be best characterized by a successful high-momentum transition, our on-the-ground full cycle performance with record results, and a lot of good work and drilling underway opening up even more opportunities for the rest of the year. We are proud of the GeoPark team for ending the first half of the year with: exploration success, production growth, cost discipline, cash flow growth, net profits, significant debt reduction and more value going back to shareholders. We are also just initiating our 2023 capital allocation process - one of our most powerful management tools - by which we rank and select the most attractive value-adding projects from our big and diverse organic portfolio to build another successful program for next year."

The realized portion registered a loss of $36.6 million in 2Q2022 compared to a $35.7 million loss in 2Q2021. Realized losses in 2Q2022 reflected hedges with average ceiling prices below actual Brent oil prices during the quarter.

The unrealized portion registered a gain of $21.1 million in 2Q2022, compared to a $12.0 million loss in 2Q2021. Unrealized gains in 2Q2022 mainly resulted from reclassifications to realized losses, combined with movements in the forward Brent oil price curve at June 30, 2022, compared to March 31, 2022.

Please refer to the "Commodity Risk Oil Management Contracts" section below for a description of hedges in place as of the date of this release.

Production and Operating Costs10: Consolidated production and operating costs increased to $115.1 million from $53.0 million, mainly resulting from a $58.1 million increase in royalties in cash, due to higher oil and gas prices.

Consolidated royalties in cash amounted to $82.8 million in 2Q2022 compared to $24.6 million in 2Q2021, in line with higher oil prices. Royalties in cash included base royalties ($18.8 million and $9.4 million in 2Q2022 and 2Q2021), high price participation ($49.4 million and $9.4 million in 2Q2022 and 2Q2021), and economic rights ($14.6 million and $5.8 million in 2Q2022 and 2Q2021).

Consolidated operating costs decreased to $27.4 million in 2Q2022 compared to $28.3 million in 2Q2021. The decrease in consolidated operating costs results from the divestment of assets in Argentina (2Q2021 included $3.1 million related to operating costs in the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks that were divested in January 2022), partially offset by higher operating costs in Colombia and Chile, and the addition of operating costs coming from Ecuador.

The breakdown of operating costs is as follows:

  • Colombia: Total operating costs increased to $21.4 million in 2Q2022 from $21.0 million in 2Q2021, mainly due to higher deliveries (deliveries in Colombia increased by 13%).

  • Chile: Total operating costs increased to $4.4 million in 2Q2022 from $3.3 million in 2Q2021, in line with higher operating costs per boe due to higher well maintenance costs, partially offset by lower oil and gas deliveries (deliveries in Chile decreased by 9%).

  • Brazil: Total operating costs decreased to $0.8 million in 2Q2022 from $0.9 million in 2Q2021, due to lower gas deliveries in the Manati field (deliveries in Brazil decreased by 19%), partially offset by higher operating costs per boe.

  • Ecuador: Operating costs per boe amounted to $32.711 in 2Q2022. Total operating costs were $0.9 million in 2Q2022.

  • Argentina: The divestment of the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks was completed in January 2022. The comparative period, 2Q2021, included $3.1 million in operating costs.

Consolidated purchased crude oil charges amounted to $4.4 million in 2Q2022,which corresponds to oil trading operations (purchasing and selling crude oil from third parties with the sale of purchased oil being reflected in revenue).

Selling Expenses: Consolidated selling expenses decreased to $1.2 million in 2Q2022 compared to $1.8 million in 2Q2021.

Geological & Geophysical Expenses: Consolidated G&G expenses increased to $3.0 million in 2Q2022 compared to $2.1 million in 2Q2021.

Administrative Expenses: Consolidated G&A decreased to $10.8 million in 2Q2022 compared to $12.7 million in 2Q2021 due to lower staff costs, consultant fees and communication and other costs.

Adjusted EBITDA: Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA12 increased by 140% to $144.8 million, or $41.9 per boe, in 2Q2022 compared to $60.5 million, or $18.5 per boe, in 2Q2021.

11

Operating costs per boe in Ecuador are calculated as total operating costs of barrels delivered, including costs to produce the barrels of the Government’s production share, divided by amounts delivered after the Government’s production share.

Financial Expenses: Net financial expenses decreased to $15.5 million in 2Q2022 compared to $20.6 million in 2Q2021, mainly resulting from a sustained deleveraging process that started in April 2021 and continued in 2022 (gross debt was reduced by $10313 million since January 1, 2022, or $208 million since April 2021).

Foreign Exchange: Net foreign exchange gains amounted to $7.1 million in 2Q2022 compared to $1.8 million in 2Q2021.

Income Tax: Income taxes totaled $67.1 million in 2Q2022 compared to $2.9 million in 2Q2021, mainly resulting from higher profits before income taxes and the effect of fluctuations of local currencies over deferred income taxes.

Net Profit: Profit of $67.9 million in 2Q2022 compared to a $2.5 million loss recorded in 2Q2021.

BALANCE SHEET

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents totaled $122.5 million as of June 30, 2022, compared to $100.6 million as of December 31, 2021.

NOTICE

Additional information about GeoPark can be found in the "Investor Support" section on the website at www.geo-park.com.

Rounding amounts and percentages: Certain amounts and percentages included in this press release have been rounded for ease of presentation. Percentage figures included in this press release have not in all cases been calculated on the basis of such rounded figures, but on the basis of such amounts prior to rounding. For this reason, certain percentage amounts in this press release may vary from those obtained by performing the same calculations using the figures in the financial statements. In addition, certain other amounts that appear in this press release may not sum due to rounding.

This press release contains certain oil and gas metrics, including information per share, operating netback, reserve life index and others, which do not have standardized meanings or standard methods of calculation and therefore such measures may not be comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Such metrics have been included herein to provide readers with additional measures to evaluate the Company’s performance; however, such measures are not reliable indicators of the future performance of the Company and future performance may not compare to the performance in previous periods.

CAUTIONARY STATEMENTS RELEVANT TO FORWARD-LOOKING INFORMATION

This press release contains statements that constitute forward-looking statements. Many of the forward-looking statements contained in this press release can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as ‘‘anticipate,’’ ‘‘believe,’’ ‘‘could,’’ ‘‘expect,’’ ‘‘should,’’ ‘‘plan,’’ ‘‘intend,’’ ‘‘will,’’ ‘‘estimate’’ and ‘‘potential,’’ among others.

Forward-looking statements that appear in a number of places in this press release include, but are not limited to, statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations, regarding various matters, including, emission reduction goals, expected or future production, production growth and operating and financial performance, operating netback, future opportunities, our deleveraging process, the redemption of the 2024 Notes, the interconnection of the Tigana Field to Colombia’s national grid, our dividend or other distributions and capital expenditures plan. Forward-looking statements are based on management’s beliefs and assumptions, and on information currently available to the management. Such statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements due to various factors.

Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update them in light of new information or future developments or to release publicly any revisions to these statements in order to reflect later events or circumstances, or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. For a discussion of the risks facing the Company which could affect whether these forward-looking statements are realized, see filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Oil and gas production figures included in this release are stated before the effect of royalties paid in kind, consumption and losses. Annual production per day is obtained by dividing total production by 365 days.

Information about oil and gas reserves: The SEC permits oil and gas companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only proven, probable and possible reserves that meet the SEC’s definitions for such terms. GeoPark uses certain terms in this press release, such as "PRMS Reserves" that the SEC's guidelines do not permit GeoPark from including in filings with the SEC. As a result, the information in the Company’s SEC filings with respect to reserves will differ significantly from the information in this press release.

NPV10 for PRMS 1P, 2P and 3P reserves is not a substitute for the standardized measure of discounted future net cash flow for SEC proved reserves.

The reserve estimates provided in this release are estimates only, and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered. Actual reserves may eventually prove to be greater than, or less than, the estimates provided herein. Statements relating to reserves are by their nature forward-looking statements.

Non-GAAP Measures: The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow and operating netback per boe, which are each non-GAAP measures, are useful because they allow the Company to more effectively evaluate its operating performance and compare the results of its operations from period to period without regard to its financing methods or capital structure. The Company’s calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, free cash flow, return on capital employed and operating netback per boe may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA: The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as profit for the period before net finance costs, income tax, depreciation, amortization and certain non-cash items such as impairments and write-offs of unsuccessful exploration and evaluation assets, accrual of stock options stock awards, unrealized results on commodity risk management contracts and other non-recurring events. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of profit or cash flow as determined by IFRS. The Company excludes the items listed above from profit for the period in arriving at Adjusted EBITDA because these amounts can vary substantially from company to company within our industry depending upon accounting methods and book values of assets, capital structures and the method by which the assets were acquired. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, profit for the period or cash flow from operating activities as determined in accordance with IFRS or as an indicator of our operating performance or liquidity. Certain items excluded from Adjusted EBITDA are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure and significant and/or recurring write-offs, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of Adjusted EBITDA. For a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to the IFRS financial measure of profit for the year or corresponding period, see the accompanying financial tables.

Operating Netback per boe: Operating netback per boe should not be considered as an alternative to, or more meaningful than, profit for the period or cash flow from operating activities as determined in accordance with IFRS or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance or liquidity. Certain items excluded from operating netback per boe are significant components in understanding and assessing a company’s financial performance, such as a company’s cost of capital and tax structure and significant and/or recurring write-offs, as well as the historic costs of depreciable assets, none of which are components of operating netback per boe. The Company’s calculation of operating netback per boe may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies. For a reconciliation of operating netback per boe to the IFRS financial measure of profit for the year or corresponding period, see the accompanying financial tables.

Net Debt: Net debt is defined as current and non-current borrowings less cash and cash equivalents.
