Connorboy is right, you need to look at it from a different perspective;

Oil Well A is going to deliver x amount of oil to Factory A because the factory needs that amount, it is going to deliver that amount anyway even without your line (little goods symbols travelling along roads). If your line is faster Oil Well A will use it. Hoewever just because you deliver the oil faster dsoesn’t mean the oil well will produce oil faster, it will only produce more oil if you run cargo lines from the refinery to the towns and the demand from the refinery increases. In my game I have a line delivering oil to a refinery, and 3 lines from that refinery to different cities. Both industries are at the moment producing 200 units per whatever time period they do it over. My oil train carries 80 units at a time and is almost always full, the revenue is almost $1m per trip
