One of the most crucial elements in the Dyson Sphere Program is extracting and refining crude oil. The process to extract and refine crude oil is pretty simple but requires steps that might cause a bit of confusion. In this quick guide, I will explain everything you need to know on how to extract and refine crude oil in Dyson Sphere Program.
Dyson Sphere Program: How to Extract and Refine Crude Oil
Very early on in Dyson Sphere Program, you will have to get your hands on Crude Oil. It is one of the natural resources found in the Dyson Sphere. You should come across Crude Oil early on when you start building your factory in the game. There are multiple uses for Crude Oil, for example, you can use it to get heat the thermal power plant.
You need a tool called the Oil Extractor. To extract Crude Oil you need to drag with the transport belt as you hover the mouse over the Oil Extractor. There is an error that prevents good results but that should be fixed in a future update. Still, you can use this method to extract Crude Oil using this method as the error does not affect every Dyson Sphere Program player.
After you extract the oil, you can move it around just like other ores even though this resource is a liquid. Transport is the same way as any other solid resource. To refine crude oil, place it on the conveyor and send it to the refinery in Dyson Sphere Program.
After the Crude Oil is refined it should be treated as a liquid and must be stored in liquid storage tanks. On the other hand, you can still transport it in cube form and on conveyors as solid items.
And that’s all you need to know on how to extract and refine crude oil. If you need more help with the game check our guide on Interstellar Logistics Station. You can also visit our dedicated Dyson Sphere Program Wiki.
