alficles Posted November 19, 2017 Share Posted November 19, 2017 I've seen lots and lots of people suggest using slicksters exclusively for oil production. In fact, it seems to be "well known" that they are a much better source than oil wells. This is great, but where do you get the CO2 to supply them? I've got a nice slickster setup that I feed with my excess CO2, including the CO2 generated by the refining and electrical generation process, but it still doesn't seem to make very much. As near as I can tell, they put out gram-for-gram Crude for CO2. It takes a rather lot of CO2 to make 10kg of crude. :/ Dupes make only 1.2kg of CO2/day, A coal generator will turn 50kg of coal into 1kg of CO2 (plus, of course, power). Hatches can produce up to 1kg/s of coal, in ideal circumstances. So as near as I can tell, the fastest way to produce CO2 is hatches to generators (fed as necessary with pufts or whatever is on hand). That's 12kg of crude per hatch per cycle. On my map, I've got 3 hatches. That's way, way not enough. I can use gas geysers for a bit more, and collect from anywhere I can, but it's still not really a lot of CO2. So, how do you generate CO2 for slicksters, if you're relying on them for oil production? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
