JAKARTA -- Indonesia will rejoin the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries in January, 2016 after a hiatus of seven years.

     The government hopes returning to the cartel will help it find partners to secure stable energy supplies. The move is also aimed at driving "oil mafias," which control gasoline imports in the country, out of business.
