GreenHunter Water Terminalling Facility Held Hostage By Protestors

GreenHunter Energy, Inc. (NYSE MKT: GRH) (NYSE MKT: GRH.PRC), a diversified water resource, waste management and environmental services company specializing in the unconventional oil and natural gas shale resource plays, announced tonight, that at approximately 10:30 AM EST today, GreenHunter Water’s New Matamoras water handling facility located in Washington County, Ohio near the town of New Matamoras was illegally raided by approximately 100 protestors. The actions of these trespassers forced the Company to completely shut down the facility for approximately six hours today before police from a number of different agencies throughout the State of Ohio arrived and forcibly removed the protestors from GreenHunter Water's property.

Ten individuals were arrested for their actions and are subject to felony charges which may include violations under the Anti-Terrorism Act. These individuals are being held overnight in county jail with arraignment anticipated sometime tomorrow by the local magistrate.

Once all protestors were removed from the premises, full business operations were reinstated at approximately 4:00 PM EST today. The Company is not aware of any physical damages caused to its property or equipment. GreenHunter is continuing normal business operations at this facility.

The Company has hired legal counsel and plans to pursue all legal remedies available under the law against those individuals and organizations that were involved in today's illegal activities.

The New Matamoras bulk storage and transloading facility is a central collecting station fully licensed to do business by the appropriate governmental authorities. Contrary to erroneous media reports, this facility only handles salt water from oil and gas wells located in the States of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio. No Hazardous wastes or other unlicensed materials are handled by GreenHunter Water at this location.
