2 1 Forward Looking Statements This presentation includes forward-looking statements as well as historical information. These forward- looking statements may include statements relating to the Syntroleum Process and related technologies, liquefied natural gas development, the GTL Barge and other gas-to-liquids plants based on the Syntroleum Process, anticipated costs to design, construct and operate these plants, anticipated costs to make products from these plants, the timing of commencement and completion of the design and construction of these plants, obtaining required financing for these plants, the economic construction and operation of gas-to-liquids plants, the value and markets for plant products, testing, certification, characteristics and use of plant products, the continued development of the Syntroleum Process (alone or with partners), anticipated capital expenditures, anticipated revenues and any other statements regarding future growth, cash needs, operations, business plans and financial results. When used in this presentation, the words “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “project,” “should” and similar expressions are intended to be among the statements that identify forward-looking statements. Although we believe that expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, these kinds of statements involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may not be consistent with these forward-looking statements. For discussion of these risks and uncertainties we refer you to the risks described under “Risk Factors” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K.

8 7 Significant Technology Barriers To Entry Requires significant time and capital –Invested greater than $200 million over 20 years Requires three process technologies New entrants must navigate patents of others Limited club of companies have GTL technology –Syntroleum –Sasol –Shell –ExxonMobil –ConocoPhillips –BP

9 8 Abundant Stranded Gas Presents Significant Business Opportunity TOTAL Gas Reserves = 6,200 Trillion cubic feet (Tcf) 1 Stranded Gas = 3,000 Tcf 2 North America 258 Tcf Europe & CIS 2199 Tcf S. & Cent. America 253 Tcf Middle East 2531 Tcf Africa 486 Tcf Asia Pacific 475 Tcf 1 Trillion Cubic Feet of Gas = 100 Million Barrels of GTL Fuels 1 BP Statistical Review of World Energy June 2004 2 EIA (DOE) International Energy Outlook 2004

10 9 Plenty of Gas for Both GTL & LNG

11 10 Market for GTL Liquids is Much Bigger Than the LNG Market Middle distillate demand growing at 2.5% per year worldwide – 4 years growth equals the entire size of the LNG market In 3 years, announced GTL capacity in Qatar is 1/3rd of current LNG market – which took 3 decades to develop Sources: 2001- American Methanol Association, Fertecon Ltd., 2004 BP Statistical Review of World Energy MethanolAmmonia LNG Middle Distillates 27 Million Bpd 2.9 Million BOE/d 1.5 Million BOE/d 0.5 Million BOE/d ‘01 2001 2003

12 11 Clean Fuels, Easily Sold Syntroleum GTL Diesel – –Can be sold in existing markets –Compatible with existing infrastructure (pipelines, storage terminals, retail pumps) –No sulfur or aromatics –Biodegradable and non-toxic –Performs better than conventional diesel –Valuable blending stock to meet new guidelines Syntroleum Diesel Burns Cleaner Than Regular Diesel

13 12 Syntroleum Strategy Targets 1-3 TCF Gas Fields 200+ non producing fields world wide with reserves of 1 to 3 TCF Syntroleum GTL targets many smaller fields. LNG and World scale GTL projects target a few larger fields 1) Gas fields outside of North America

14 13 Syntroleum’s Niche is Potentially Huge Billion Barrels ≈ 6.3 1.4 Potential from 40 fields ≈ 8 Billion Barrels High-graded 40 locations in 15 countries Uncontracted gas Proximity to shore Low delivery cost

15 14 Air Based Technology Enables Access to Target Fields Barge for swamp and coastal locations Modular plants for onshore Ship-based plants for offshore

16 15 Syntroleum’s First Project: Aje Field Offshore Nigeria Previously discovered oil and gas field offshore Nigeria –Two wells successfully tested oil and gas GTL Technology was enabling factor in acquiring the block Acquired rights to develop Aje field (September 2004) Re-processed and mapped geophysical data Current status: –Drilling permit granted –Assignment of interest approved by the Nigerian Government –Aje-3 to spud in 3Q05

22 21 Syntroleum’s Aje Economics * Gross Revenues less royalties plus bonuses and overriding royalty 100+% NYMEX Strip June 28, 2005

23 22 AJE: Sensitivity to Crude Prices Net to Syntroleum’s Interest

24 23 Aje Compared to Conventional E&P Projects 1Source: 2003 John S. Herold, Inc., Herold Global Upstream Performance Review 2 Aje Oil Only - Costs assume $666 Million oil field development cost to produce 200 million bbl of oil reserves, $2.00/Bbl oil field operations cost and $100,000/day oil FPSO lease rate for an oil production rate of 40,000 Bpd. 3 Aje Gas Dev.- Costs assume $186 Million gas field development cost, $900 million capital cost for a GTL/Oil FPSO, $15,000/day gas field operations cost and FPSO operations cost of $120,000/Day. It is assumed that Aje contains 74 million bbls of condensate and can produce 116 million bbls of GTL fuels. Assumes production of 10,000 Bpd of condensate and 17,000 Bpd of syncrude from GTL. $11.52 $7.81 $10.70 1 23

25 24 Accelerate Stranded Gas Acquisition Strategy: Securing Multiple Gas Fields Expand upstream partner’s commitment to Syntroleum –Increase from 1 team to 6 teams seeking stranded gas Areas of interest: –West Africa –Middle East –South East Asia Funding the expanded opportunities –$50 million Stranded Gas Venture –Seed money for project acquisition –80% Syntroleum, 20% investors

26 25 Multiple Opportunities in Nigeria Existing independent Nigerian field owners –Currently pursuing nine (9) opportunities Nigerian National Petroleum Company (NNPC) Equity Gas GTL Venture –Negotiations underway –41 potential GTL Barge sites –Excess barge energy provides needed electric power source Open blocks with proven gas discoveries –Participating in bid round – 11 blocks of interest –Have formed three bidding consortiums for specific areas

28 27 Robust Business Development Pipeline Participating in Algeria Tinhert tender –Proposals must include a 34,000 barrels per day GTL plant –Consortium is formed Actively negotiating MOU for an Asian GTL project Six additional opportunities being developed in the Middle East, Asia and South America

29 28 Emerging Coal to Liquids Opportunity United States Government priority –Energy security –$4.5 million technology Research and Development grant from Department of Defense Abundant U.S. coal reserves –270 billion tons recoverable reserves –World’s largest coal reserves Technology components exist – integration of proven gasification technologies and Syntroleum Fischer-Tropsch required Numerous unsolicited project opportunities from credible sponsors New focus on Coal to Liquids Comprehensive evaluation of opportunities underway

30 29 Recent Financings Strategy Raised $80 million via private offerings to Legg Mason Opportunity Trust and Dorset Group Corporation –Limited equity raise in anticipation of future key events –New investors aligned with long term strategy $89 million cash position at March 31 st Anticipate less dilutive future capital raises

31 30 Summary Syntroleum has developed the three phase process for converting natural gas into ultra-clean transportation fuels Major opportunity to directly develop stranded gas using Gas to Liquids Aje project remains on schedule Increasing traction on multiple specific projects 2005 financings enabling acceleration of business plan Emerging Coal to Liquids strategy
