Oil Spill

I had a guy call me today and told me an oil line had come apart on a piece of ground that I currently farm on a share lease and there was an oil spill.  He was wanting to know what they owed me.  I told them I would have to look at it and get back with them as soon as I saw how bad the spill was.  Am I wrong in requesting that they remove all the soil that the spill contaminated and replace it with fresh top soil down to a depth of 3' or however deep the contamination went?  And question #2, would I also be wrong in requesting a soil analysis of the fill dirt they will be replacing it with before they start to backfill and charge them the difference in fertility?  I really pushed the fertilizer on this ground the last 6 years and would hate to lose all those nutrients.
