Iran oil exports show steady increase as Asia buys more
Iran exported more crude than allowed under Western sanctions for at least a fourth straight month in February, as ship loading data obtained by Reuters showed top clients again bought more than 1 million barrels per day (bpd) of Tehran's oil.
The rise in sales to Iran's main clients, mostly in Asia and including Turkey, comes after an agreement that eased some of the sanctions aimed at the OPEC member's nuclear programme. The November deal also freed up $4.2 billion in oil payments to Tehran, but it does not allow for shipments to increase.

WASHINGTON — Oil and gas companies trying to lure women into the industry have some work to do, according to a new report.
The analysis by NES Global Talent, released Wednesday, finds in a survey that while 75 percent of women feel welcome working in the oil industry, nearly half believe they don't get the same recognition as male colleagues who dominate the field.
"There are clear improvements to be made, if the oil and gas sector is to attract larger numbers of female engineers," said Neil Tregarthen, CEO of the recruiting firm that is based in Manchester, U.K., and has offices in Houston and more than two dozen countries. "Many respondents said they are paid less, have fewer opportunities than their male counterparts and have to work harder than men to prove themselves."
