If oil-crunched Indonesia goes nuclear As the only Asian member and current president of the Organisation of Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) oil cartel, Indonesia should be capitalising on the high prices for crude oil and laughing its way to the bank. South-east Asia's largest country, and by far its most populous, has the world's 16th largest proven oil reserves.

Official figures published in Jakarta last month show Indonesia became a net importer of crude oil for the first time in February and March.
