Currently, Ultra has an inventory of over 2,500 undrilled locations averaging over 5.1 Bcfe recoverable on a mix of 10, 20 and 40 acre spacing as identified by its third party reservoir engineering firm. Additionally, Ultra currently has several pilot projects at Pinedale evaluating the feasibility of increased density drilling. Ultra enjoyed a drilling success rate of 100% in 2005 in Wyoming with 2005′s program wells completed at year-end averaging 6.8 Bcfe per well. In addition to being the largest lease owner on the Pinedale Anticline, Ultra also has an interest in two oil exploration / development blocks (631,702 acres) in Bohai Bay, China with all nine oil discoveries currently in production.

Since 1999, Ultra has grown proved reserves more than 2,600 percent to over 2.0 Tcfe. Production for the last five years has increased at an average compound annual growth rate of 68% to 73.8 Bcfe in 2005, comprised of 61.7 Bcf of natural gas and 0.464 million barrels of oil from the Wyoming properties, and 1.556 million barrels from Bohai Bay, China.
