THIRD QUARTER 2022 HIGHLIGHTS

Accelerating Production Growth

Growing Revenue, Adjusted EBITDA & Cash Flow Driving Record Net Profit

Returning More Value To Shareholders

Deleveraging and Balance Sheet Strengthening

2023 Work Program: Strong Cash Generation with Increased Shareholder Returns

Recent Events And Upcoming Catalysts

Andrés Ocampo, Chief Executive Officer of GeoPark, said: "The third quarter financial results reflect the hard work of GeoPark's most important asset, our people. Once again, in 2022, that hard work has paid off with a busy drilling schedule that produced record financial results from the top line to the bottom line. We have just completed our 2023 capital allocation process and anticipate another active year drilling between 50-55 wells across our portfolio. This will translate into significant free cash flow in 2023 to self-fund our high-impact exploration and development program and increase shareholder returns while maintaining a strong balance sheet, reducing emissions and strengthening the ties to our neighbors."

a)

Includes royalties paid in kind in Colombia for approximately 911, 1,273, and 1,213 bopd in 3Q2022, 2Q2022 and 3Q2021, respectively. No royalties were paid in kind in other countries. Production in Ecuador is reported before the Government's production share.

b)

Please refer to the Commodity Risk Management section included below.

c)

Production and operating costs include operating costs, royalties and economic rights paid in cash, share based payments and purchased crude oil.

d)

G&A and G&G expenses include non-cash, share-based payments for $3.9, $2.0 million and $1.7 million in 3Q2022, 2Q2022 and 3Q2021, respectively. These expenses are excluded from the Adjusted EBITDA calculation.

RECENT BLOCKADES IN THE LLANOS BASIN IN COLOMBIA

In mid-October 2022, localized blockades in the Llanos basin partially affected production and operations in the Llanos 34 block (GeoPark operated, 45% WI), that is expected to reduce net production by approximately 230 bopd in 4Q2022. Blockades have been lifted as of the date of this release and production and operations have been normalized.

Production: Oil and gas production in 3Q2022 was 38,396 boepd. Adjusting for divestments in Argentina (completed on January 31, 2022), consolidated oil and gas production increased by 8% compared to 3Q2021, due to higher production in Colombia, Chile and Ecuador, partially offset by lower production in Brazil. Oil represented 91% and 87% of total reported production in 3Q2022 and 3Q2021, respectively.

Compared to 2Q2022, oil and gas production was 1% lower, mainly due to temporary local blockades in Colombia that reduced 3Q2022 production by approximately 1,100-1,200 boepd, and to a lesser extent, lower gas production in Brazil.

For further details, please refer to the 3Q2022 Operational Update published on October 20, 2022.

Reference and Realized Oil Prices: Brent crude oil prices averaged $98.2 per bbl during 3Q2022, and the consolidated realized oil sales price averaged $85.9 per bbl in 3Q2022.

A breakdown of reference and net realized oil prices in relevant countries in 3Q2022 and 3Q2021 is shown in the tables below:

The realized portion registered a loss of $13.8 million in 3Q2022 compared to a $22.4 million loss in 3Q2021. Realized losses in 3Q2022 reflected hedges with average ceiling prices below actual Brent oil prices during the quarter.

The unrealized portion registered a gain of $36.8 million in 3Q2022, compared to a $10.6 million gain in 3Q2021. Unrealized gains in 3Q2022 mainly resulted from reclassifications to realized losses, combined with movements in the forward Brent oil price curve at September 30, 2022, compared to June 30, 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 Costs8: Consolidated production and operating costs increased to $87.1 million from $49.2 million, mainly resulting from a $31.6 million increase in royalties and economic rights, due to higher oil and gas prices.

Consolidated royalties amounted to $15.5 million in 3Q2022 compared to $10.9 million in 3Q2021, in line with higher oil prices.

Consolidated economic rights (including high price participation, x-factor and other economic rights paid to the Government) amounted to $47.0 million in 3Q2022 compared to $20.0 million in 3Q2021, in line with higher oil prices.

Consolidated operating costs increased to $23.6 million in 3Q2022 compared to $18.2 million in 3Q2021, mainly resulting from higher deliveries and higher operating costs per boe in Colombia, Chile and Brazil, and the addition of operating costs coming from Ecuador, partially offset by the divestment of the Aguada Baguales, Puesto Touquet and El Porvenir blocks in Argentina (completed in January 2022).

The breakdown of operating costs is as follows:

Consolidated purchased crude oil charges amounted to $0.7 million in 3Q2022, 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 increased to $2.0 million in 3Q2022 compared to $1.8 million in 3Q2021.

Geological & Geophysical Expenses: Consolidated G&G expenses increased to $2.3 million in 3Q2022 compared to $2.1 million in 3Q2021.

Administrative Expenses: Consolidated G&A increased to $14.3 million in 3Q2022 compared to $11.8 million in 3Q2021.

Adjusted EBITDA: Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA9 increased by 63% to $141.3 million, or $42.4 per boe, in 3Q2022 compared to $86.8 million, or $26.9 per boe, in 3Q2021.

a)

RIK (Royalties in kind). Includes royalties paid in kind in Colombia for approximately 911 bopd and 1,213 bopd in 3Q2022 and 3Q2021, respectively. No royalties were paid in kind in Chile, Brazil, Argentina or Ecuador. Production in Ecuador is reported before the Government's production share.

b)

Reported in the Corporate business segment.

c)

Conversion rate of $mcf/$boe=1/6.

d)

Includes amounts recorded in the Corporate and Argentina segments.

e)

Operating costs per boe included in this table include certain adjustments to the reported figures (IFRS 16 and other).

Depreciation: Consolidated depreciation charges decreased by 9% to $21.4 million in 3Q2022 compared to $23.6 million in 3Q2021, mainly resulting from the divestment of the Aguada Baguales, El Porvenir and Puesto Touquet blocks in Argentina, with higher depreciation costs per boe.

Write-off of unsuccessful exploration efforts: The consolidated write-off of unsuccessful exploration efforts amounted to $5.9 million in 3Q2022 compared to $4.2 million in 3Q2021. Amounts recorded in 3Q2022 correspond to exploration costs incurred in previous years in the Tacacho and Terecay blocks (Putumayo basin in Colombia) and an exploratory well drilled in the CPO-5 Block (Llanos basin in Colombia).

Other Income (Expenses): Other operating expenses showed a $2.6 million loss in 3Q2022, compared to a $1.6 million loss in 3Q2021.

CONSOLIDATED NON-OPERATING RESULTS AND PROFIT FOR THE PERIOD

Financial Expenses: Net financial expenses remained flat at $13.3 million in 3Q2022 and 3Q2021, mainly resulting from borrowing cancellation costs of $2.1 million recorded in 3Q2022 associated with gross debt reductions during the quarter, offset by lower interest costs resulting from a sustained deleveraging process that started in April 2021 and continued in 2022.

Foreign Exchange: Net foreign exchange gains amounted to $11.5 million in 3Q2022 compared to $1.0 million in 3Q2021. Gains recorded in 3Q2022 mainly resulted from the devaluation of the Colombian peso and its effect on liabilities in local currency.

Income Tax: Income taxes totaled $70.2 million in 3Q2022 compared to $31.9 million in 3Q2021, mainly resulting from higher profits before income taxes and the effect of fluctuations of the Colombian peso over deferred income taxes.

Net Profit: Profit increased by 98% to a $73.4 million gain in 3Q2022 compared to a $37.0 million gain in 3Q2021.

BALANCE SHEET

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents totaled $93.0 million as of September 30, 2022, compared to $100.6 million as of December 31, 2021.

This net decrease is explained by the following:

Cash flows used in investing activities included $115.2 million in capital expenditures incurred by the Company as part of its 2022 work program, partially offset by proceeds from the disposal of assets that amounted to $15.1 million.

Cash flows used in financing activities mainly included $180.4 million related to repurchases and redemptions of the 2024 Notes (including borrowing cancellation costs and other costs paid), $36.5 million related to interest payments, $23.1 million related to executing the Company's share buyback program and $17.0 million related to dividend payments.

Financial Debt: Total financial debt net of issuance cost was $491.1 million, including the 2027 Notes and other bank loans for $1.2 million. Short-term financial debt was $6.8 million as of September 30, 2022.

The Company is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the 2023 Adjusted EBITDA which is a forward-looking non-GAAP measure, because the Company cannot reliably predict certain of its components. Since free cash flow is calculated based on Adjusted EBITDA, for similar reasons, the Company does not provide a quantitative reconciliation of the 2023 free cash flow.

NOTICE

Additional information about GeoPark can be found in the Invest with Us 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, including Adjusted EBITDA, expected free cash flow and shareholder returns, dividends and buybacks forecasts, timing, method and amount of share repurchases, operating netback, future opportunities, our deleveraging process, our dividend or other distributions, capital return yield, and our 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, 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.

Free cash flow is used here as Adjusted EBITDA less capital expenditures, mandatory interest payments and cash taxes. 2023 cash taxes include GeoPark's preliminary estimates of the full impact of the new tax reform in Colombia, irrespective of the timing of its cash impact, expected in 2023 or early 2024. The Company is unable to present a quantitative reconciliation of the 2023 Adjusted EBITDA which is a forward-looking non-GAAP measure, because the Company cannot reliably predict certain of the necessary components, such as write-off of unsuccessful exploration efforts or impairment loss on non-financial assets, etc. Since free cash flow is calculated based on Adjusted EBITDA, for similar reasons, the Company does not provide a quantitative reconciliation of the 2023 free cash flow forecast.
