Obituary

David Christian Shaw passed away suddenly on the 9th September 2017 at the age of 57 years in Denver Colorado where he had based himself since the time of his parent's death two years ago. He had previously lived for many years in Houston Texas. He is survived by his son Christopher and sister Elizabeth, along with his former wife Swee Lian, sister-in-law Julia and his beloved dog Chelsea. He grew up in The Sudan and Rome, excelling at school and university. He had over 30 years of technical and managerial experience in the application of advanced technology and IT concepts to the energy industry worldwide. Following academic appointments both in mathematical and engineering disciplines, he held a wide variety of research, development, consulting, and senior project and executive management positions, in the oil & gas and energy sectors. He held a PhD from Imperial College, was a past Chairman of Professional Education at the Society of Petroleum Engineers, and a past Royal Society Lecturer.
