The oil and gas industry is highly specialised, and large-scale upgrading and enhancing of scope tends to be along the vertical comparative advantage axis. Exploration, refining and petrochemical activities, for example, mostly fall outside the scope of SMEs. However, across each level on the vertical scale, there are significant business opportunities along the horizontal supply chain for SMEs to exploit. Some of the opportunities they could explore include the provision of office supplies, catering services, communication and technology services, construction, transportation, fabrication and welding services. Moreover, SMEs can and must add value by introducing new technologies and innovative solutions to address key challenges in the industry, as well as bringing greater efficiencies and productivity in operational activities.
