NORM Awareness in the Oil and Gas Industry Online Safety

NORM can build up in pipelines and on equipment and high concentrations can pose a significant health hazard when they aren’t properly managed.NORM can be enhanced by human activity, such as oil and gas extraction, to become technologically enhanced NORM (TENORM), which can increase workers’ potential for exposure.Fortunately, oil and gas employers can help protect workers by making sure

Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials NORM World

Naturally-Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) (Updated April 2020) Radioactive materials which occur naturally and where human activities increase the exposure of people to ionising radiation are known by the acronym 'NORM'. NORM results from activities such as burning coal, making and using fertilisers, oil and gas production.

NORM MANAGEMENT GUIDELINES & PRINCIPLES

•NORM received a global attention during last 4 decades •Two forms of hard scales, Black grayish and white soft. NORM background •NORM discovery associated with deep wells dog within reservoirs having a granite or shale bed rocks and high percentage of water cut to crude oil production (70-94%).

Texas RRC NORM (Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material)

Jurisdiction over oil and gas NORM waste is split between the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) and the Railroad Commission. The DSHS regulates the possession, use, transfer, transport, and storage of NORM and the Railroad Commission regulates the activities associated with disposal of oil and gas NORM waste.

The Top 5 Deadly Gases in the Oil and Gas Industry

In the oil and gas industry, petroleum gases are often referred to as “sweet gas” or hydrocarbon gas. Employees that work with oil storage tanks have the highest risk of exposure. OSHA records show that there were 9 deaths from exposure to petroleum gases since 2010.
