I don't think that there is a better history channel on Youtube than his.  I have no idea how he maintains this output and quality. . .

There are several good ones, but Drach is my default.

How was the oil on the surface cleaned and what was done with this oil?

Good question!  Even in those environmentally indifferent days, they had to do something with it.

Could it be recycled into other petro products?

I've never seen anything mentioned about disposal or use of waste oil like that.  I can't imagine they just waited on it to disperse, if only because of the problems it would cause salvage.

It can be processed, but it is a question of cost. W/O processing heavy oil mixed with water can be reused in some appliances, like making road tar.
