Indonesia'€™s oil and gas imports amounted to US$3.94 billion in November 2013, up 13.39 percent from $3.47 billion in the previous month, the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) said on Thursday.

BPS head Suryamin said oil and gas imports had reached $41 billion during the January-November period of 2013, up $2.2 million from $38.85 billion.

'€œThe increase in oil and gas imports were triggered by increases in crude oil and oil product imports, which reached $13.5 million and $452.8 million, respectively,'€ he told a press conference in Jakarta as quoted by Antara news agency.

He said the value of crude oil imports amounted to $12.5 billion during the January-November period of 2013, up $2.4 billion or 24.91 percent from $10.01 billion in the same period of 2012, prompting the increased figure in oil and gas imports.

In January-November 2013, Indonesia'€™s oil and gas product imports suffered a decline of $187.9 million or 0.72 percent and $120.9 million or 4.26 percent, respectively, from the previous period. (ebf)
