Giving Back to Shareholders and Expanding Investor Base

James F. Park, Chief Executive Officer of GeoPark, said: "Thanks very much to the GeoPark team for delivering again strong free cash flow and profits from our high-quality low-breakeven production. We also are gearing up for 2022, with a powerful work program consisting of a very active drilling campaign with 40-48 wells, targeting continued production and cash flow growth, as well as 15-20 low cost exploration targets to potentially open up new fields on our big low-risk high-impact acreage position that can quickly be brought to cash flow if successful. We also announced an actionable and concrete roadmap to lower greenhouse gas emissions that provides real results in the short-term ? as well as continue to provide tangible shareholder returns by our active dividend and share buy-back programs. This means for 2022 we will be generating significant free cash flow that will self-fund all of our objectives including shareholder returns, balance sheet strengthening, emission reductions, new business efforts, growing our production base, and an exciting exploration drilling program. We believe that being able to self-fund from cash flow and simultaneously achieve these objectives represent the right business model for our industry today and provide GeoPark with a comparative advantage in an energy-transitioning world."

BLOCKADES IN PUTUMAYO

In mid-October 2021, some communities in the Putumayo basin started protests against the Government and as a result, GeoPark shut in Platanillo production of 2,100 bopd and suspended drilling activities in the block.

Revised 2021 production guidance results from shut in production and delayed drilling of two development wells that were expected to start producing in 4Q2021 and are now expected in late 4Q2021 or early 2022.

Production was fully restored on November 4, 2021 and development drilling activities are expected to restart by mid-November 2021.

SALE OF NON-CORE ASSETS IN ARGENTINA

On November 3, 2021, GeoPark accepted an offer from Oilstone Energía S.A. to purchase GeoPark's 100% WI in the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks in the Neuquen basin in Argentina for a total consideration of $16 million.

Closing of the transaction is subject to customary regulatory approvals and is expected by the end of 2021 or early in 2022. GeoPark will continue operating the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks until the completion of the divestment process. The sale of these blocks will allow GeoPark to reallocate resources to its core operations in Colombia and to continue streamlining its operations.

During the first nine months of 2021, the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks produced approximately 2,200 bopd (58% oil, 42% natural gas), representing 6% of GeoPark's net consolidated oil and gas production during that period.

The Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks have net proven PRMS reserves of approximately 3.7 million barrels of oil equivalent, based on the December 2020 DeGolyer and MacNaughton's certification, and adjusted by production during the nine month period ended September 30, 2021.

Revenue: Consolidated revenue increased by 77% to $174.0 million in 3Q2021, compared to $98.1 million in 3Q2020, reflecting higher oil and gas prices, partially offset by lower oil and gas deliveries (which decreased by 8%, mainly due to lower gas deliveries).

Sales of crude oil: Consolidated oil revenue increased by 83% to $163.5 million in 3Q2021, driven by a 90% increase in realized oil prices, partially offset by a 3% decrease in oil deliveries. Oil revenue was 94% of total revenue in 3Q2021 and 91% in 3Q2020.

The realized portion of the commodity risk management contracts registered a loss of $22.4 million in 3Q2021 compared to a $1.4 million gain in 3Q2020. Realized losses recorded in 3Q2021 reflected the impact of zero cost collar hedges covering a portion of the Company's oil production with average ceiling prices below actual Brent oil prices during the quarter.

The unrealized portion of the commodity risk management contracts amounted to a $10.6 million gain in 3Q2021, compared to a $1.3 million gain in 3Q2020. Unrealized gains during 3Q2021 resulted from the reclassification of $22.4 million from unrealized to realized losses during 3Q2021, partially offset by unrealized losses during the quarter that resulted from the increase in the forward Brent oil price curve compared to June 30, 2021, which decreased the market value of the Company's hedging portfolio beyond 3Q2021, as measured on September 30, 2021.

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 Costs1: Consolidated production and operating costs increased to $49.2 million from $28.4 million, resulting from a $22.5 million increase in cash royalties, partially offset by lower operating costs.

Consolidated royalties increased to $30.9 million in 3Q2021 compared to $8.4 million in 3Q2020, in line with higher oil and gas prices, partially offset by lower oil and gas deliveries.

Consolidated operating costs decreased by 9% to $18.2 million in 3Q2021 compared to $19.9 million in 3Q2020.

The breakdown of operating costs is as follows:

Lower operating costs per boe in Chile and Argentina in 3Q2020 mainly resulted from reduced or suspended well intervention and maintenance activities resulting from the lower oil price environment.

Selling Expenses: Consolidated selling expenses increased to $1.8 million in 3Q2021, compared to $1.3 million in 3Q2020.

Administrative Expenses: Consolidated G&A amounted to $11.8 million in 3Q2021 compared to $10.4 million in 3Q2020. Amounts recorded in 3Q2021 include advisory and consultancy fees related to the Annual General Meeting held in July 2021.

Geological & Geophysical Expenses: Consolidated G&G expenses decreased to $2.1 million in 3Q2021 compared to $2.8 million in 3Q2020.

Adjusted EBITDA: Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA2 increased by 55% to $86.8 million, or $26.9 per boe, in 3Q2021 compared to $56.1 million, or $15.9 per boe, in 3Q2020.

Depreciation: Consolidated depreciation charges decreased by 11% to $23.6 million in 3Q2021, compared to $26.7 million in 3Q2020, in line with lower depreciation costs per boe and lower oil and gas volumes delivered, which decreased by 8%.

Write-off of unsuccessful exploration efforts: The consolidated write-off of unsuccessful exploration efforts amounted to $4.2 million in 3Q2021 compared to $0.6 million in 3Q2020. Amounts recorded in 3Q2021 refer to unsuccessful exploration costs incurred in Colombia.

Impairment of non-financial assets: The consolidated impairment charges amounted to a $13.3 million gain in 3Q2021 compared to a $1.0 million loss in 3Q2020. Amounts recorded in 3Q2021 refer to the reversal of previously recognized impairment charges related to the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks in Argentina.

Other Income (Expenses): Other operating expenses showed a $1.6 million loss in 3Q2021, compared to a $1.3 million loss in 3Q2020.

CONSOLIDATED NON-OPERATING RESULTS AND PROFIT FOR THE PERIOD

Financial Expenses: Net financial expenses decreased to $13.3 million in 3Q2021, compared to $15.8 million in 3Q2020 mainly resulting from the strategic deleveraging process executed in April 2021 that resulted in significant debt reduction with extended maturities and lower costs of debt.

Foreign Exchange: Net foreign exchange charges amounted to a $1.0 million gain in 3Q2021 compared to a $0.7 million loss in 3Q2020.

Income Tax: Income taxes totaled a $31.9 million loss in 3Q2021 compared to a $16.3 million loss in 3Q2020, mainly resulting from the effect of higher profits before tax recorded in 3Q2021 compared to 3Q2020.

Profit: Gain of $37.0 million in 3Q2021 compared to a $4.3 million loss recorded in 3Q2020, mainly due to higher operating profits recorded in 3Q2021 that were partially offset by higher income tax charges.

BALANCE SHEET

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents totaled $76.8 million as of September 30, 2021, compared to $201.9 million as of December 31, 2020.

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 the sale of assets in Argentina, the Manati gas field divestment, emiision reduction goals, expected or future production, production growth and operating and financial performance, operating netback, future opportunities, 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.

1 Operating costs per boe represents the figures used in Adjusted EBITDA calculation with certain adjustments to the reported figures
