theory has the ability to be charged. perhaps an addition to the oil could allow it to be influenced further in the case of an oil slick. i think i
know what you are getting at.
seems a coincidence in my though process at the moment that with the south atlantic anomaly in proximity to the gulf and as of yet a slick with no

state. i may be wrong.
Well there is an Oil here in the UK called Castrol Magnetism or something like that, it supposedly sticks to the pistons in your car for better

Oil does not hold "magnetic" properties persay. Most things have some conductivity.
