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 & Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:PPWE.ob) announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, American Resources, Inc. (NYSE:ARI), has begun production on its 87.5 acres in Western Kentucky.

ARI has completed the re-work on all 4 wells, with those wells online and pumping. "This is an exciting day for us," stated Proper Power President, Andrew Kacic. "This is the beginning of production for Proper Power in Kentucky, and we look forward to increasing our presence."

Proper Power & Energy is an independent exploration and production company. The Company's operations are in Kentucky, which provides for low risk developmental drilling and production, and Utah, which the Company controls over 11,000 acres for its exploratory prospect. Renowned geophysicist and consultant to Proper Power, Robert Dunbar, believes the Utah prospect could hold up to one billion barrels of recoverable oil.

American Video Teleconferencing Corp. (Pink Sheets:AVOT) is pleased to announce that Wayne Lockhart, BSc. Geology, has joined the company as special geological advisor to AVOT for advancing the company's exploration programs on its newly acquired rare earth property in Quebec.

Mr. Lockhart has over 35 years experience in the mining business having worked for Falconbridge and Phelps Dodge in eastern Canada, Anglo American Corp.(DeBeers) in Africa and Benguet Cons. in the Philippines. Mr. Lockhart in addition to being a lecturer at the University of New Brunswick in Geology, has developed programs for the United Nations (UNDP). Mr. Lockhart is an Honorary Director of the Prospector and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC), a founding and former member of the Association of Exploration Geochemists and a Member of the Society of Economic Geologists.

The company is looking forward to this new relationship with Mr. Lockhart as he will be able to provide the guidance, expertise and leadership that will be needed moving forward, as he has had many years experience working in the province of Quebec.

Rare earth elements have become irreplaceable in clean tech such as hybrid and electric car motors, high-efficiency light bulbs, solar panels and wind turbines. They also play a key role in defense technologies such as cruise missiles, radar and sonar and precision-guided weapons.

Experts warn that the U.S. depends upon China for almost its entire supply of rare earths, and has let its own rare earth production languish despite having about 15 percent of the world's reserves. A draft of a Chinese rare earths plan for 2009-2015 states that China's own industrial demand could soon lead to restrictions or bans on the export of rare earths.

The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has noted that 91 percent of U.S. consumption of rare earths came from China between 2005 and 2008.

Constraints on Chinese exports are creating opportunities for non-Chinese projects.
