can't get oil from "great lakes" area in america?

my coastal city lying directly adjacent to the oil can't even make work boats or any boats for that matter to harvest it. is this a glitch, or is this just bad luck?

You need Biology to see oil & construct oil wells on land, but you have to wait til you discover Refrigeration to be able to build offshore platforms....

No this is a genuine glitch for oil rich lakes; even with a coastal city adjacent to the lake (including having the required tech) it will not let you build work boats. V. Annoying when a good source of oil is sitting on your land .
