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

8 Abundant Stranded Gas Presents Significant Business Opportunity
TOTAL Gas Reserves = 6,200 Trillion cubic feet (Tcf)1 Stranded Gas = 3,000 Tcf2 Europe & CIS 2199 Tcf North America 258 Tcf Middle East 2531 Tcf Africa 486 Tcf S. & Cent. America 253 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 EIA (DOE) International Energy Outlook 2004

9 Plenty of Gas for Both GTL & LNG

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 Methanol Ammonia LNG Middle Distillates 27 Million Bpd 2.9 Million BOE/d 1.5 Million BOE/d 0.5 Million BOE/d ‘01 2001 2003 Sources: American Methanol Association, Fertecon Ltd., 2004 BP Statistical Review of World Energy

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 Key Point: Syntroleum GTL Diesel is the best diesel in the world. Background Information: - First, consider the benefits of GTL fuels vis-à-vis future fuel requirements that are being mandated. EPA diesel in 2006 can have only 10 parts per million sulfur; GTL synthetic diesel contains no detectable sulfur. EPA diesel can contain 30% aromatics; GTL has virtually no aromatics. Conventional diesel has a cetane (diesel’s equivalent of gasoline’s octane) of 45; while GTL diesel has a cetane number in excess of 74. Almost any way you slice it, GTL is just a better fuel when it comes to diesel. Syntroleum Diesel Burns Cleaner Than Regular Diesel

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

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