No Floating absorbant oil spill booms around Hibernia or White Rose

Something that has always mystified me when I see pictures of the Hibernia platform or the White Rose FPSO is the absence of floating absorbant oil spill booms.

These things are a marvel of modern technology they float and don't absorb water yet they will absorb petroleum products.

To my knowledge this is the standard for ships at dock they must have a boom surrounding them while they are at dock but since these oil rigs are on the open ocean there seems to be no requirement in the very place you would think it is required and most essential. In and around oil drilling and production operations.
