When selecting oil rights for auction, the OilFinancier program will select provinces on a somewhat random basis. However the program will favor those provinces that are earning more revenue from royalties and taxes. In other words, if the program is obviously favoring a few provinces, it is because these provinces are investing their oil money into their society. This investment will include a better social and transportation infrastructure, which owners of wells in this province can use for profits.

In other words, if it seems that a few provinces seem to be dominating the public auctions, that trend is likely to continue.
