___  Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTC:PPWE)

Oil Shocks

The Arab-Israeli conflict of 1973, some Arab producers led by Saudi Arabia set up an oil embargo against the United States to protest against their support of Israel. While the embargo was short-lived, it drove up prices and showed how potent a weapon oil could be.

But for producers, the weapon turned out to be a doubled-edged one. Consuming countries began to establish energy policies that aimed at reducing their dependency on oil, encouraged conservation, and boosted the development of other sources of energy, including nuclear power.

The second oil shock of the late 1970s and early 1980s, which followed the Iranian Revolution, precipitated that movement. It also spurred a new wave of exploration in the North Sea and Alaska, where massive new reserves were discovered.

By the mid-1980s, however, with oil prices falling, energy policy in the United States took a backseat for the next two decades.

Proper Power & Energy, Inc. has recently 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.

"The Company is now postured to accelerate the development of both Utah and Kentucky in the first Quarter 2011," Mr. Abdo stated.

Proper Power & Energy, Inc. was formed in 2006 as an exploration and production company for oil and gas.  The organization is committed to utilizing a very dynamic system of research and testing, and as a result of this extensive research and testing, have selected several sites with very good to excellent potential for productivity.
