How to calculate the oil production rate?

Post by Quax » Wed Sep 04, 2019 8:11 pm

Hi there, I'm currently stuck at calculating oil input. I'm going to set up a Chemical science pack factory, and thus need oil. The calculator tells me I need 1.500/m. So how do I calculate how much pump jacks I need to fulfill this input ratio?? The Wiki only tells me a mining peed and time, but how does that refer to the number of "items" produced per second?

Divide the oil per minute by 6.

1500 / 6 = 250.

So you need a 250% oil patch.
