Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTC:PPWE) Oil and gas are burned in a enormous capacity all over the world. Countries that have no oil or gas have to pay a tremendous amount of money to import it. In 2000, the USA paid out about $100 billion to bring oil into the country while Saudi Arabia made around $80 billion shipping oil to other countries.

Most governments use a license system to boost private companies to search for oil and gas in their countries. Land and sea areas that may have oil are divided into “Blocks”. These are approximate square areas usually between 5 and 20 kilometers (3 – 12 miles) wide. Companies pay money to the government to be able to lease blocks for a time period, during which they are obligated to search for oil using the latest technology.

In some cases, oil companies must sign a “production sharing contract”, in which case the government gets a percentage of any oil discovered. In all cases, the government will make gains by taxes raised from oil companies. In addition, oil and gas production creates jobs and reduces the need for imports.
