In depends entirely on the surrounding geology. With Oil I believe that drilling rigs often pump in a liquid to ease extraction of the oil. With gas coal and limestone I believe there are voids left.

As far as being concerned about them well for the most part they are a long way under the earths surface and are unlikely to cause you any problems unless you build a house without a "survey" on a sink hole and it subsequently falls in...
