Moats and competitive advantages are hard to build; however, I would argue that Ultra Petroleum (UPL) has a decent advantage: the ability to drill for liquids at very low cost. In considering Ultra's ability to drill at some of the cheapest rates in the industry, it seems to be only a matter of time before they start turning around as the commodity pricing of liquids begins to increase again (which it will unless everyone actually believes that the recessionary global economic climate will last forever).
