Choosing the right Oil Boom for your contaminated Location

Question on oil boom types: May I know the different types of oil contamination boom you have available? I would like a type that can be used at oilfield spill sites (across pipelines). I intend advising the government on which to buy. May I also have your details/prices /specifications-as it would be included in the proposed bid. Thank You.oil booms
