Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTCBB:PPWE), a Tampa-based independent oil and gas exploration and production company, has announced that it has been approached by two independent financing groups and has submitted a $10 million private placement memorandum to each of them. These two groups are seeking domestic oil and gas production in light of the Middle East tensions. Oil is the heartbeat of the world’s economy and the world consumption of oil, spurred on by countries such as India and China, is set to increase tremendously.
Since the horse and carriage became obsolete because of the car, the main mean of transportation, oil has become vitally important to the world economy. Its importance has catapulted to the point that in a world suddenly without oil, all the minor and major delivery systems that allow economic undertakings on a larger than local basis wouldn’t work and the world economy would collapse. Proper Power & Energy is an independent exploration and production company. Proper Power & Energy’s operations are in Kentucky, which provides for low risk developmental drilling and production, and Utah, which Proper Power & Energy controls over 11,000 acres for its exploratory prospect.
Renowned geophysicist and consultant to Proper Power & Energy, Robert Dunbar, believes the Utah prospect could hold up to one billion barrels of recoverable oil. Utah ranked 11th in the United States in crude oil proved reserves and 8th in natural gas proved reserves (not including Federal Offshore areas) in 2008. Utah ranked 13th in the United States in crude oil production and 9th in gross natural gas production (not including Federal Offshore areas) during 2008. Utah contains four of the Nation’s 100 largest oil fields, two of its 100 largest natural gas fields (2008). Utah has approximately 3,200 producing oil wells and 5,700 producing natural gas wells.
