Where's the nitro?

Seriously, I don't know if this is true or not, but I've heard that one of the ways that you can put out a flaming oil extraction plant is by bombarding it with nitroglicerene(spell check?).

The nitro will consume oxygen faster than the burning oil and therefor extinguish the fire. Sounds cool, heh?
