Oil Power Station is one of two sources of electricity in the game. It generates both Electricity Tokens Token electricity.png and electricity for the electrical network burning liquid fuel. It primarily uses diesel Icon diesel.png from a Refinery, but also crude oil Icon oil.png directly from Oil Wells.

Processes

The base building uses 4 units of diesel Icon diesel.png generating 1 Electricity token Token electricity.png every 3 Game ticks. There are 3 extensions available. Two of which increase the token production by burning more diesel each Game tick, while the third one adds a new process - generating an electrical token Token electricity.png every 2 Game ticks burning 5 units of crude oil Icon oil.png. A fully upgraded Oil Power Station uses 6.33 units of diesel Icon diesel.png and 2.5 units of crude oil Icon oil.png generating 2.83 Electricity Tokens Token electricity.png each Game tick. It also adds network capacity to electrify 17 more industrial complexes.

Please note: While a fully upgraded power station generates more Electricity Tokens Token electricity.png faster, it also burns through the fuel supply at the adjacent station much faster. The power plant generates electricity for your connected industry only when there is fuel available, otherwise all the connected industries lose the electrification bonus. It is advisable to upgrade the power plant only after you have well established supply lines with sufficient fuel reserve.
