NORM Surveys

Oil and gas operations may bring to the surface naturally occurring radioactive materials such as uranium and thorium, radium 226 and radium 228. A quality NORM survey will detect radiation, its location and source. Armed with this information you can make better safety decisions for your workplace in order to decide on the necessary protection levels and control measures.

Our experienced scientific staff can carry out a tailor-made NORM survey and help you address your NORM hazards.
