Buying and Selling Refineries
 
  • General Information
  • Buy / Sell Refineries

    Each refinery can refine up to 25,000,000 gallons of crude per turn.   As you get more net worth, you will want to refine more crude per turn, so buying refineries is necessary.  If, however, you need quick cash and you have more than 1 refinery, selling refineries is a quick way to get it.

    General Information:


  • 1. Month:  The current month you are in.  You start the game on the current month according to your computer clock.  The number in parenthesis next to the month is the turn number you are currently on.  The game lasts for 120 turns.

    2. Cash:  This is the amount of cash you currently have available to you for purchases.

    3. Crude in Stock:  The amount of crude you have in stock, either from importing or from your land plots.

    4. Refinery Cost:  The amount of cash you need to purchase a refinery.

    5. Refinery Price:  The amount of cahs you will receive if you sell a refinery.

    6. Maximum to Buy:  The maximum number of refineries you can buy this turn.  This factor is based on how much cash you have available.

    8. Refinable Gallons:  The amount of crude you can refine in this turn.  This is equal to the number of refineries times 25,000,000 minus any crude you have already set up to refine this turn.
