Re: Factorio

Did you get advanced oil processing and crack heavy oil in to light and light into petroleum? If your refineries have nowhere to send even one of the three products, like a storage tank or a processing plant, your jacks will stop pumping. I've found 6-8 jacks from around 100-150% oil wells will take me through most of the blue research, you shouldn't need to go too far afield for that.

After that I'd look in to the oil tanker mod that lets store crude in a train tanker and offload with I believe a small pump in to your network. Otherwise you can try piping it a super long way (I think after a certain distance your throughput goes to crap) or storing it in barrels and shipping it by rail.
