Indonesia wants to reactivate full OPEC membership

Indonesia has submitted an official request to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) to reactivate its full membership in the organization.

The request has been circulated to all OPEC Member Countries for their consideration and approval.

OPEC has announced that the Indonesian Minister of Energy and Mineral Resources, His Excellency Sudirman Said, would be invited to attend the next regular Meeting of the OPEC Conference on December 4, 2015. According to OPEC, this will include the formalities of reactivating Indonesia’s membership of the Organization.

The organization notes that in June, H.E. Said was invited to attend the OPEC International Seminar, where he met OPEC Ministers. Also, the OPEC Secretariat has recently received a high-level delegation from the Indonesian Parliament, headed by the Chairman of its Energy Committee.

Indonesia became a Member of the Organization in 1962, before suspending its membership with effect from January 1, 2009.

“Indonesia has contributed much to OPEC’s history.  We welcome its return to the Organization,” it has been said in OPEC’s press release.
