Oil Wells are the source of Crude Oil , which can be sent for processing to the Refinery to become Diesel , or to produce Goods if the Propane Plant extension is built at a Refinery. Also, from 5th Era forward, you can use Crude Oil as fuel in Oil Power Station as long as you build Crude oil incinerator extension.
The base version of the Oil Wells generate 1 Crude Oil per Game tick. The crude oil production can be increased using 3 additional Oil Wells, which unlock sequentially as you progress throughout the game. Each provide 1 additional Crude Oil every Game tick. Futhermore, you can build The Desalination Plant, which provides 3 additional Crude Oil every two Game ticks. When all extensions are built around the base Oil Wells it produces an average of 5.5 units of Crude Oil per Game tick.
The base production of Oil Wells is:
