Yes, the way tasks and resources are ordered has to be complex which leads it to be counterintuitive. If a Dupe is moving away from a higher priority task you've assigned, it's possible that it's heading to a lower priority task it got before the higher priority task. You can click on the Dupe and have it move a few squares to shake it out of its focus and it'll update its tasks queue.

If you instead dribble in tiny amounts of oil at a time, you don't run into this problem.
You're right, I tried it and it was better at transforming crude oil into petroleum then natural gas. I got squares with hundreds of kilograms of natural gas pressure.
