Why doesn’t the ocean floor collapse when oil and gas are removed from under the sea?

When oil and/or gas is removed from under the sea, why doesn’t the ocean floor collapse and the resulting movement cause a form of tsunami?

  1. I asked this question to a physics friend a few weeks ago, he said that the oil and gas is under great pressure in the earth and when they drill for oil/gas it comes to the surface due to the pressure. When the pressure has decreased and the oil/gas stops coming out the the earth naturally we stop collecting it as it wouldn’t be energy efficient/financially viable to pump it out. So we never remove all the oil/gas so there is never a hole so it doesn’t collapse. Apparently
