You cannot build any improvements other than roads and railroads on an oasis tile.

    You should be able to use their resources by assigning workers to them in the city, if the tile is within the bounds of the city of course. That's different from building improvements. Commented Jun 29, 2012 at 2:33

    It's possible to build a city on an oasis, but it is destroyed in the process.
