The drilling industry supply chain consists of global procurement, contract management, transport, storage, control measures and information flow. Factors that restrict the supply chain in the Australian drilling industry include internal (company-related and micro-economical) and external (geopolitical and macro-economical) drivers or barriers.
Through this research, a number of perceived barriers to innovation and technology transfer within the Australian drilling industry’s supply chain network were identified. The causes of these barriers include internal forces,
The initial studies of the literature review indicated research gaps about the key barriers in Australian drilling. The first question was, Is Australia utilising
In order to address the barriers, the researcher has utilised supply chain models to evaluate the level of local and international collaboration between
The concept of innovation and technology transfer can be confused with invention or the technology itself. The literature review considers both invention and innovation for research purposes. Although the analysis of innovation and technology transfer can provide exceptional benefits to the industry and firms by providing solutions to have a more efficient industry, the analysis does not deliver an in-depth view of the causes, effects and exact benefits of innovation in the industry.
This research was conducted through a case study approach using a chain of detailed qualitative data, data analysis and interviews to address the barriers to innovation in the drilling industry in Australia. Essentially, the research
It has also been identified that although this research area is undertaken by private research institutions and R&D departments, only a small portion of the findings are being shared with the public. This is why the current literature
To what extent does the Australian on-shore drilling industry utilise the latest technological innovations?
What are the key influencing factors for innovation and technology transfer within the Australian on-shore drilling industry in terms of the supply chain and its operating environment?
How do the key influencing factors create barriers to innovation and technology transfer?
To what extent do the barriers influence innovation and technology transfer?
The current research aims to explore the innovation and technology transfer experience within the Australian oil and gas industry, specifically the on-shore drilling industry. The research initially focuses on gaining a deeper
The research provides a number of significant findings and a holistic overview of the supply chain of Australian drilling in different levels. The multilevel
Further research should aim at developing this qualitative research to compare the Australian oil and gas industry and companies with other advanced oil and gas nations and firms. In addition, an in-depth comparative analysis can be
