America needs an equally balanced energy policy that helps promote energy efficiency, conservation and a greater supply of all forms of energy, including domestic oil and natural gas. The industry has proven it can make these resources safely and in an environmentally responsible manner in all areas, including on non-park federal lands.

Producing these resources from federal lands is vital to providing energy resources that are vital to grow the U.S. economy, enhance U.S. energy security, stimulate the creation of new high-paying American jobs, increase funds to the federal, state and local governments and improve the U.S. balance of trade.

Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:PPWE.ob) 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.

"The timing to acquire oil and gas properties while gas prices are low couldn't be better. Additionally, the availability of this funding for developing Proper Power's Kentucky and Utah oil prospects will accelerate 2011 revenues and leasehold acreage growth dramatically. We anticipate feedback from both of the financing groups before the end of this month," stated Andrew J. Kacic, President of Proper Power & Energy.

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.

China has started to drastically reduce the exports of rare-earth materials, which frequently are used in “green” technology designs, including hybrid vehicles and energy-efficient lighting, as well as in the healthcare, defense, and consumer markets. The nation supplies nearly 100% of the world’s rare-earth materials: 17 metals which are difficult to refine and that tend to occur in the same ore deposits. The cutbacks have sent shock waves through the electronics industry and could force design changes in the near future.

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