The effect of oil reservoirs on intensity of earthquake has been discussed in this paper. The data for this research have been obtained from IRIS Earthquake Browser which has given earthquake data for South West of Iran, where there are high pressure oil fields. In this article, attempt has been made to show seismicity of oil fields that has been changing with time. Some simple simulation experiments were also performed to get a relation between mechanical vibration through some compact soil in a box and absorption of these vibrations by a water bag which was placed underneath the soil, inside the box. The results were used to explain absorption of an earthquake impact by an oil reservoir and oil reservoirs work as dampers.
