New Frontier Energy, Inc. (NFEI) Provides Project Development Update

DENVER, CO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 15, 2005 -- New Frontier Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: NFEI) today announced that the Company and its working interest partners have acquired a leasehold interest in an additional 2,634 gross acres in its Slater Dome Prospect by successfully bidding on the acreage at the federal oil and gas lease sale held on November 10, 2005. The acquisition is significant as the newly acquired acreage offsets existing gas production and will allow the Company to continue the prudent development of the Slater Dome Prospect.

The Slater Dome Prospect consists of approximately 34,265 gross acres of oil and gas leases operated by an independent third party; the Company has a 30% working interest in the prospect. The Company and its exploration partners have drilled twelve gas wells at the Slater Dome Prospect and have one water disposal well. The Company commenced production from six wells in June 2005 and has tied a seventh well into the gathering line in November 2005.

Paul G. Laird, New Frontier's and CEO, commented, "We anticipate increasing gas volumes from our wells as the dewatering process continues. As is common with many coalbed methane fields, a period of dewatering the coalbeds is generally required, and is associated with steadily increasing gas production. While encouraged by the present levels of methane gas production, additional production history will be required before the full commercial and reserve potential of these wells is known."
