OG 01 NORM in Oil & Gas

NORM in Oil & Gas

Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) is widespread in minerals, oil, LNG and residual waste streams. Although the concentration of NORM in most natural substances is low, any operation in which material is extracted from the earth and processed has the potential to concentrate NORM in product, by -­ product or waste (residue) streams. The generation of products, by – products, residues and wastes containing NORM has potential to lead to exposures to both workers and members of the public, along with environmental impacts.

Pig Tracking

Pig Tracking

An evolutionary shift in pipeline pig location and transit verification. Pig Patrol location method utilises a small sealed radioactive source that is designed specifically for each programme. It is contained and attached to each pig. Pig Patrol informs asset owners about their pipelines performance and condition to promote optimisation and availability. Delays and related costs incurred locating lost or stuck pigs can be onerous, these can also be reduced significant with the consistent and low risk reliability of Pig Patrol.

OG 04 Subsea NORM Detection

Sub Sea NORM Detection

NORM can accumulate in subsea pipelines. The accumulation of NORM can greatly influence the final decommissioning and potential abandonment of subsea pipework. When any pipework (or even attendant infrastructure such as valves, manifolds and heat-exchangers) is retrieved from the seabed, an accumulation of NORM can pose a health and environmental hazard.  Being able to ascertain the presence of significant build-ups of NORM can greatly mitigate the risk and allow more informed planning and decision making.

OG 03 Waste Pond Sampling

Waste Pond Sampling

Obtaining spatially significant samples from oily waste ponds or tailings ponds is often difficult at best and dangerous at worst.  Radiation Professionals now deploy the WASSP, utilised to obtain 3D spatially significant samples from hard, soft, liquid, silt etc. ponds without the need for costly or dangerous excursions over the tails or waste ponds. This purpose designed, crane mounted sampling apparatus is intended for sampling of large waste and tails ponds that may not be readily accessible by other means.
