"Indonesia is the most populous country in Southeast Asia and the fourth most populous country in the world. The country struggles to attract sufficient investment to meet growing domestic energy consumption because of inadequate infrastructure and a complex regulatory environment. At the same time, it was the world's largest exporter of coal by weight and the eighth largest exporter of natural gas in 2011." Quoted from the Energy Information Administration report.

January 19, 2014 | Energy Information Administration
"The smallest oil producing member of Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and fifth-largest oil producer in Central and South America, Ecuador is largely dependent on oil, which represented 76% of the country's total energy consumption in 2012. Hydroelectric power was the second largest energy source. Natural gas and non-hydro renewable fuels are also important to Ecuador's energy mix. Ecuador's hydrocarbon resources are exclusively owned by the state, and changes to Ecuador's legal framework continue a trend towards policies of resource nationalism." Quoted from the Energy Information Administration's country report.
