How long will it take the ocean to naturally cycle and filter the oil itself?

    I don’t think I can give you an exact number. All I know is that it will take a very long time for the ocean to naturally heal itself. It is said that the ocean’s arsenic level has increased (arsenic is found in oil) and oil spills impartially block the ocean’s natural filtration system. Seeing how massive the oil spill was, I would say that it would probably take decades for the ocean to presume its nature, considering that there are no more oil spills or leakage to add to the damage.
