In order to increase Oil Well generation, you need to got the config file, goto buildcraft, then goto main.cfg, open it using notepad or something. scroll down to where it says D:oilWellGenerationRate=1.0, then just change the number to a number < 100. You MUST include the .0.

be careful with this. Places that are already abundant in oil (like deserts) will pretty much become an.. oil biome. – Rapitor Jun 19 '14 at 18:57
