This thesis aims to study new solutions for the SMEs subcontractors' problems who work in the oil and gas industry while using the latest automation and robotic technologies. In order to achieve this goal, the study investigates existing literature, as well as increases the knowledge through expert interviews. The interviews were conducted with professionals in the oil and gas industry who have plenty of experience working at a subcontractor or general contractor firm. The interviews have shown that robotic applications can play an essential role in solving the general problems of subcontractors. It has been shown that robotic automation can prevent global pandemics such as coronavirus that can cause deep wounds in the economy. This research includes various calculations to compare robotic automation and labour studies in the long and short term. With the discovery-driven plan, research has been conducted on how much profit any subcontractor company can make using new technologies in robotics. The results show that robotic automation technologies significantly improve safety, efficiency and quality in the oil and gas industry. Moreover, this research shows how vital the blue ocean strategy is for SMEs and the importance of using blue ocean strategies to solve SMEs' subcontractor problems.
