David Lim

In 2014 David Lim was the first person to achieve 100% on the IWCF Principles & Procedures paper at our new training centre in Kuala Lumpur (which opened in August, 2014). We're now extremely pleased to announce that he has done for a 2nd time running in late-2016!! A remarkable achievement. 

David is presently working as a Drilling Supervisor back home in Malaysia (offshore Sabah) on board a semi-assist tender rig on the Malikai development project. This is Malaysia’s very first Tension Leg Platform (TLP). It is also his very first experience working on a TLP and he’s proud to say that the team very recently achieved first oil in December 2016. What a great way to end the year in what has been a challenging 2016.

He is working with Shell and has a total of 14 years of experience, having worked in various parts of the world in Asia, Middle East and North Africa. David’s work has taken him to many faraway places, working with people from all walks of life in all manner of environments: 
“It has been a great experience and I wouldn’t swap it for anything else. Looking forward for more of the same in the coming years.”

David recently got married and as both he and his new wife are very much into travelling, they are currently planning a trip to the USA. He also enjoys running and hopes to take the leap and complete a half-marathon in 2017. 

“No prizes for guessing where the prize money will be going – to the vacation fund!”

Best of luck, David, and safe travels!
