SimCity - Where has my oil gone?

★★★★ Newbie

I have two oil fields, each with 10 pumps and each producing about 2000 barrels per day.  I have one oil power plant.  I'm not exporting oil.  My lots are set to local use.  I'm trying to build up a reserve.  HOWEVER, one lot is full at 2000 barrels and the others are empty.  Where is my oil going?

Are you supplying a great works with oil ? Do you have refineries that could use oil ?

No.  I'm not building a great works.  I think I just discovered my problem.  I was too trickly for my own good.  I built an access road for one of my wells that was not connected to the well's main building.  The game let me add pumps and showed oil flowing.  When I bulldozed that and added a second well things started working correctly.

 

Thanks for offering me assistance.
