Full Description

Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material or NORM is present in all materials but some areas have more of the materials than others.  The primary route of NORM from oil and gas reservoirs is through produced water. This talk will focus on the basics of NORM: what it is, where it originates, how it accumulates and how proper handling can help to minimize problems.
