The Oil Pump is a structure in the Scorched Earth-DLC of ARK: Survival Evolved.


Oil Pumps need to be placed on top of Oil Veins that can be found in the Low Desert and Badlands locations of Scorched Earth. The Oil Pump will extract 1 unit of  Oil from the vein every 20 seconds. Pumps eventually stop producing oil and need to be replaced.

(Note, whilst it can be crafted on The Island, it cannot be used.)
