The Indonesian Crude Price increased to $122.17 a barrel from $115.91 in January, the Directorate General of Oil and Gas at the energy ministry said in a March 2 statement on its website. Indonesia’s Minas grade rose 5.3 percent to $124.63 a barrel in February from $118.38 in January, the ministry said in the statement.
