Don't know about oil wells refilling naturally. Haven't come across that before, but would love to read something on that. Can you link?
It is interesting to know that possibly it wasn't "Dino" that turned into oil...
What I've been hearing is that they inject sea water into the surrounding areas to push oil from the surrounding areas into the well head areas, since the straw sucking it out is bigger than the rate of seep into the well area.
Here's one on global warming.

I was reading about the oceans of hydrocarbons on the Saturnian moon,
Titan, when I came across this page which I thought you guys might find
interesting. I've long laughed at the idea that petroleum was a
fuel' as hydrocarbons are abundant throughout the solar system, whether
in the clouds of Jupiter or in the atmosphere of Mars or in the oceans
of Titan. Can you imagine an ocean of petroleum? I can still recall
the vivid little diagram of a brontosaurus(I believe they are called
allosauruses today) getting stuck in a tar pit or peat swamp and dying
to create 'fossil fuels' like oil and coal. Idea estupida! No, I
believe that all rocky planets and moons have petroleum and other
hydrocarbon fuels in various states. Anyway, the above page explains
things rather well, I think. I have heard about oil wells refilling and
I am vaguely familiar with the deep earth gas theory. Has anyone read
the _Deep Hot Biosphere: The Myth of Fossil Fuels_?
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will
not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius
will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the
world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone
are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve
the problems of the human race"
