2 Bohai Bay China China Green River Basin Wyoming

3 Ultra Highlights  Hundreds of long-life natural gas drilling locations  Exciting International exploration and development  High rate of return projects  Exceptional drilling success rate – 95% since ‘00  Industry leading reserve and production growth

4 Wyoming Reserve Growth 95% CAGR

5 Production Growth 57% CAGR

6 Year 2003 Results $116 mm capital expenditures 53% reserve growth to 1,073.4 bcfe 66% annual production growth to 28.9 bcfe $0.29 / Mcfe Finding & Development Cost 1,390% Reserve Replacement Ratio 37 year Reserve to Production Ratio

7 Year 2004 $190mm capital budget 38% production growth – 40 bcfe 20% reserve growth – 1,300 bcfe 80 Gross wells – Wyoming 3-5 exploration / appraisal wells in China Begin Production at CFD 11-1/11-2

18 Increased Density Drilling – Pinedale WOGCC recognizes common Lance Pool at Jonah and Pinedale. Data from Jonah applicable to submissions in Pinedale. Jonah 20-acre Pilot complete. 5 and 10-acre Pilots in progress. Pinedale Increased Density Pilot Projects (20-acre) approved in 2003 for Ultra and Anschutz. Pilot well drilling initiated Existing EIS provides for drilling of Increased Density Wells. Pilot Areas

19 Bohai Bay, China Nine fields discovered to date Development underway Huge Acreage position – 1,100 square miles Lightly explored – only 49 exploration wells China’s most prolific basin – 10+ BBO Remaining appraisal & exploration potential % exploration interest- 9-10% net Reserves
