painting over a concrete floor with oil on it


I have a section of floor in my basement that is below an old coal chute that for some reason all of a sudden, started to smell really strong like kerosene. I put that oil absorbent kitty litter stuff on it and it's not taking the smell away. We had flood like rains here and it was right after that that the floor started smelling so strong it sent fumes up through the whole house.
Anyway, is there some sealant/paint I can put over this that will seal in the smell?

I'm going to post this on a paint board too...

thanks for your help.

Painting over oil on a concrete floor is a no no.
