Developing weapons that shoot darts for up to 18 metres under water is nowhere near the ability of getting a thousand tons of oil to ignite without oxygen 2000 metres below sea level.
I'm pointing out they are a ingenious nation, not put off by difficulty very easily....underwater. :read:
And a fair point it is. Says nothing at all about the possibility of igniting 100 tons of oil 2000 metres below the sea surface, though, nor how close the Russkies got to making it happen.
