    Recent investigation on supply chain collaboration practices in the Oil and Gas industry reveals that there is limited research on supply chain collaboration (SCC). This calls for further exploration of the literature on collaborative supply chain and the factors of SCC in other industries to understand and identify the extent of SCC that exist in the industries. The study explored the systematic literature of two significant databases (Scopus and OnePetrol) to collect related publications on existing collaborative supply chain factors and its extents in almost all sectors. The findings suggest that information sharing, trust, and information technology are three crucial factors of a collaborative supply chain that contributes to performance improvement and effective supply chain system in most organisations. This study suggests that the identified factors have the potentials to enhance the oil and gas industry if implemented to achieve the outlined improvements obtained across other industries.
