In this globalization era, petroleum companies are one of the dynamic supply chain entities, which require a dynamic process of capabilities. Companies may encounter problems related to the dynamic process in firm’s capabilities. Such dynamic process requires simultaneous acquisition and continuous re-evaluation of partners, technologies and organizational structures. However, the more flexible the firms deal with the problems in their engagement of stakeholders, the more likely for them to explore, create, and invest in the dynamic capabilities, hence higher performance level over time. Therefore, due to their high degree of uncertainties circulate through the supply chain network; as a result, petroleum companies require dynamic supply chain capabilities. Motivated by the complexity of uncertainty in the petroleum companies and its typical characteristic of the supply chain, this study intends to understand the perspective of dynamic supply chain management focusing on the learning orientation. This study employs interpretive paradigm where it will guide towards rigor qualitative methodology. This study also provides rich and thick description of the dynamic supply chain capabilities where the outcome will contribute to the managerial and theoretical perspective of supply chain management in oil and gas industry.
