Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) surveys are conducted on equipment and media surrounding suspect areas where NORM could be present. NORM surveys are conducted to determine the presence or absence of the radionuclides. Naturally occurring radionuclides are present at varying concentrations in the Earth’s crust and can be concentrated and enhanced by processes associated with the recovery of oil and gas. Uncontrolled activities associated with enhanced levels of NORM can contaminate the environment and pose a risk to human health. These risks can be alleviated by a NORM Assessment to identify where NORM is present and to put in place controls to minimize exposure of NORM contaminated equipment and waste to protect workers.
C&S personnel can conduct NORM surveys on your facilities and equipment.
