Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) is a widespread substance and it exists in the earth. NORM exists in soil, water, plants, petroleum, coal, lignite, phosphate, geothermal waste, wastewater, humans and animals. The human body cannot directly sense or detect NORM through any of its sensory mechanisms. It has been established that Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) may accumulate at various locations along the oil/gas production process. Components such as wellheads, separation vessels, pumps, and other processing equipment can become NORM contaminated, and NORM can accumulate in the form of sludge, scale, scrapings, and other waste media. This can create a potential radiation hazard to workers, the general public, and the environment if certain controls are not established
