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:
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."
