How to Get Oil in Victoria 3

Now you know where to find the oil, and what’s next? How do you obtain oil? Let’s answer these questions.

  • Whaling Stations: The most basic way to get oil is to construct a whaling station. Even though these stations only provide a limited amount of oil, they have 20%-30% worker mortality rates. Consequently, you will need to spend money on employee rehabilitation or face the risk of an uprising.
  • Oil Rigs: Although oil rigs are more efficient than whaling stations, their building costs, unfortunately, make them unattainable: pumpjacks technology with 60 oil per level, 5x engines, and 10x coal. If we could build these rigs, the process would be automated.
