Bengara-II Production Sharing Contract Negotiations Terminated

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 16, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GeoPetro Resources Company (NYSE MKT:GPR) ("GeoPetro" or the "Company") today announced that Kunlun Energy Ltd. ("Kunlun"), acting in its capacity as operator of the Bengara-II Production Sharing Contract ("PSC"), has terminated negotiations with the Indonesian government for an extension of the PSC's term. Consequently the PSC shall be relinquished and allowed to expire in accordance with its terms.

The Company is disappointed that Kunlun could not work out agreeable terms for an extension with the Indonesian government. However, Kunlun's decision in this regard does provide the Company with an opportunity to potentially re-acquire a participation in the same block under new PSC terms and with a renewed time period when the block comes out for public tender in 2013. The Company will evaluate its options in this regard.
