How to Get Oil in Cities: Skylines II
There are several ways to get oil in Cities: Skylines II but the best method to get oil is extracting it from your land.

To build an oil extractor in Cities: Skylines II, follow the following steps.
- Select the Specialized Industry under the Zones tab.
- Select the Oil Drilling.
- Zoom out of the map to get a better view of the oil patches. Go over the largest oil patch in your land and then click the land to confirm the oil drilling over the selected patch.
- Now, cover the maximum amount of land with oil drilling land by creating a node. Spread the node in a way that the whole oil area is covered to confirm the oil drilling and maximum production.
