  • The Debate Over Land Farming Naturally Occurring

    NORM associated with oil and gas exploration and production has only been found in 20 states, with the highest measurements reported in Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and Mississippi. Although NORM is produced by many drilling and mining activities, the debate in Mississippi centers on NORM within the oil and gas industry. age 5.614.1.

  • What Is Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM

    NORM can come to the earth's surface due to natural processes (radon gas moving through cracks in rocks or dissolving and being transported by ground water flows), or due to human activities (mining, oil and gas extraction, etc.). Additionally, the human activities that bring NORM to the surface may cause NORM to become more concentrated than its natural state. For example, coal ash from

  • NORM SOLUTION

    There are two primary types of NORM in which the oil and gas industry is concerned: Radium-226 and Radium-228 and their radioactive decay products ("daughters"), in particular Radon-222, Lead-210, and Polonium-210. The production of oil and gas generates waste and materials that may contain NORM. NORM emits alpha and beta particles along with small amounts of gamma radiation. Workers
