IPAA Annual Meeting 4 Barnett Shale - Why the Explosive Growth? 'Slickwater' fracturing (1997 - Mitchell Energy) Completion costs reduced by 60 - 70% Improved gas production Horizontal drilling Exposes the wellbore to more surface area Better control of frac Multiple wells from one pad Avoids culture –Parks, lakes, houses Higher gas prices Increased pipeline takeaway capacity Energy Transfer Crosstex Enterprise

Statements concerning production growth, cash flow margins, finding costs, future gas prices, reserve potential and debt levels are forward-looking statements. Financial results are subject to audit by independent auditors. These statements are based on assumptions concerning commodity prices, drilling results, production, administrative costs and interest costs that management believes are reasonable based on currently available information; however, managements assumptions and the Companys future performance are both subject to a wide range of business risks and uncertainties, and there is no assurance that these goals and projections can or will be met. In addition, acquisitions that meet the Companys profitability, size and geographic and other criteria may not be available on economic terms. Further information on risks and uncertainties is available in the Companys filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which are incorporated by this reference as though fully set forth herein. This presentation includes certain non-GAAP financial measures. Reconciliation and calculation schedules for the non-GAAP financial measures can be found on our website at www.xtoenergy.com. Reserve estimates and estimates of reserve potential or upside with respect to the pending acquisition were made by our internal engineers without review by an independent petroleum engineering firm. Data used to make these estimates were furnished by the seller and may not be as complete as that which is available for our owned properties. We believe our estimates of proved reserves comply with criteria provided under rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Securities and Exchange Commission has generally permitted oil and gas companies, in their filings made with the SEC, to disclose only proved reserves that a company has demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation test to be economically and legally producible under existing economic and operating conditions. We use the terms reserve potential or upside or other descriptions of volumes of reserves potentially recoverable through additional drilling or recovery techniques that the SECs guidelines may prohibit us from including in filings with the SEC. These estimates are by their nature more speculative than estimates of proved reserves and accordingly are subject to substantially greater risk of being actually realized by the company.
