Everyone has been touched by America’s oil and natural gas industry. Farmers use fertilizer that comes from natural gas. Truckers use diesel fuel to transport goods to the markets.
Businesses count on oil and natural gas to make and sell their products and supply their services. If you purchase a loaf of bread, buy a new electronic gadget, or drive a car, you should consider yourself a part of the oil and natural gas industry. From airline pilots to welders, and all jobs in between, we’ve all taken part in our energy future.

The industry reinforces jobs not just in exploring, producing, refining, transporting and marketing oil and natural gas, but also through the purchases it makes of other goods and services that support the industry’s operations. Equipment suppliers, construction companies, management specialists, and food service businesses are all a strong connection in the industry. These businesses turn around and purchase other goods.

Proper Power & Energy, Inc. has restructured its executive management team and entered into a strategic alliance.

Andrew J. Kacic will replace Joseph Abdo as President of PPWE. Mr. Kacic brings more than 32 years of progressive experience as a chief executive in oil and gas, investment banking, insurance services and public securities. Mr. Kacic was the founder and president of American Resources of Delaware, Inc. and its subsidiary Southern Gas Company, successfully taking assets from $220,000 to more than $40 million in less than 4 years. Mr. Abdo will remain the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.
