Immersive Petroleum is a lightweight content add-on for Immersive Engineering that introduces oil, oil extraction, and oil processing to the mod's tech progression. It includes an expansive set of configuration options to ensure that it will be a welcome addition to any modpack that includes Immersive Engineering.
To utilize Immersive Petroleum, players must first locate an oil deposit buried deep belowground, trapped under a thick layer of Bedrock. The Core Sample Drill can be used to detect these reservoirs. Once a source of oil is discovered, Pumpjacks can be built to pump the Crude Oil to the surface.
Using the large Distillation Tower multiblock, Crude Oil is heated to separate it into layers of varying boiling points. From the Crude Oil input, the structure produces Diesel, Gasoline, Lubricant, and Bitumen. Diesel acts as a less environmentally friendly but longer-burning alternative to Biodiesel, whereas Gasoline can fuel the included Motorboat and Portable Generators. Lubricant allows you to speed up your machines. Bitumen is a gooey byproduct that's used in making Asphalt paving.
The initial version of Immersive Petroleum includes all you need to start building your oil empire, including the Pumpjack and Distillation Tower, Portable Generator, Lubricant Can, Automatic Lubricator, Motorboat, Projectors, and Asphalt paving. Expect to see new multiblock machines, from bedrock-piercing Oil Derricks to Cokers that can crack Bitumen into Diesel and Petcoke in the future.
For more information, look in the Oil Processing section of the Engineer's Manual.
