Proper Power & Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: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.

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.
