In connection with its securities analysts meeting, XTO Energy Inc. said that the Company expects year-end 2005 proved reserves to exceed 7.5 trillion cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (Tcfe). These reserve volumes imply an all-in finding and development cost for the year, including acquisitions, of between $1.40 - $1.50 per thousand cubic feet of gas equivalent (Mcfe). Based on development expenditures of about $1.4 billion, the Company further expects its 2005 drill bit finding costs to range between $1.10 - $1.20 per Mcfe. Final proved reserves estimates, as prepared by Miller & Lents, Ltd., will be available by late February.
