  • Cover oil trading in the Middle East and North Africa
  • Track ships and build carefully checked data sets on your findings
  • Collaborate with other reporters and editors around the world
  • Plan ahead for news events
  • Be committed to the best journalist practices, sound judgment and willingness to learn.

You'll need to have:
