Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:PPWE.ob) commented recently on a Wall Street Journal Article titled "Oil's Rise Is a Sticky Situation for Recovery". (Dated January 12, 2011 Section C). The article discussed the current environment of rising oil prices and its effect on consumers and the impending economic recovery. With oil prices at nearly $90 per barrel, consumers fear oil prices will return to their 2008 levels, when oil peaked over $145 per barrel. "A 2008 – style shock isn't a certainty, but an upward trend is clear. Goldman Sachs expects oil prices to average $100 a barrel this year….," the article is quoted as saying.

"The Company will benefit from these rising prices as it produces its Kentucky oil asset while creating the strategy for our exploration prospect in Utah," stated President of American Resources, Andrew J. Kacic. American Resources is a wholly owned subsidiary of Proper Power.

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.

Proper Power maintains 10,000 plus acres of leased land in Central Utah, and last year announced the results of its initial review of seismic data. This was on the heels of Thrust Resources' Radiometrics Plus data suggesting the existence of huge pay zones in the Valley.

"With petroleum prices on the rise, I am confident that we will be able to begin producing domestic petroleum from the Rush Valley by the end of 2011, thereby helping to reduce our dependence on foreign supplies," stated Kacic.

Proper Power & Energy 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.
