Ibrahim Wasman

Lead Document Controller at Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA) in Erbil, Kurdistan Region of Iraq

Who are you? 


I’m Ibrahim Wasman, and I graduated from the College of Science, Mathematics department in 2001. In the same year, I started my journey to work in a computer training center as a data entry staff; after a short period, I started to analyze data using Microsoft excel.


In 2002, I joined a telecommunication company as a data analyst, issuing reports to all related customers. The same year I joined the United Nation, Food Agriculture Organization (FAO), in the data collection unit as a Data Entry Supervisor. Gradually, I have crossed many career waves successfully.


Who do you work for and where? 


Since 2013, I have been working for Abu Dhabi National Energy Company PJSC (TAQA) as a project document controller to build a central process facility (CPF) in Iraq.

I have been involved in all stages: front-end engineering design (FEED), detailed engineering, construction, commissioning, plant start-up and handover to the production and maintenance department. I am a lead document controller.



What are your passions in life? 


My passion is to communicate to my project team about document control principles in a smart and easy way, so that they to understand what we expect from them and how to follow and implement the company DCC policy and procedures. I like identifying business gaps and providing solutions to close such gaps. To save trees and have a clean environment, I would like people to avoid printing papers around the globe.


My hobbies are swimming and reading.


What has the impact of Consepsys training been on your career? 


Consepsys courses have had positive impact on my career; they have helped me to:

  • Assess document control workload for any project.
  • Better communicate among project teams and with external parties (Contractors and Subcontractors).
  • Supervise the document control team in a more professional manner.
  • Plan and deliver EDMS training to the Engineering and Maintenance team on time.
  • Identify how document control is critical to save employee lives especially when they are dealing with a risky environment related to flammable liquids and gases.
  • Assist my project manager during close out reports.
  • Give priority to main document control tasks during the project execution.
  • Manage Redline mark-ups, Tie-In and As-built drawings in a professional way.
  • Get a promotion in my current company to become a Lead document controller.


Finally, I have participated in most of Consepsys training courses and passed the related exams but still I need to take the rest of training which I have missed due to covid-19 pandemics! I strongly encourage people to join such training courses to be more confident and to achieve more and more.
