The purpose of this project was to implement a NORM Management Framework for a Plug and Abandonment (P&A) campaign on an offshore platform.
Radiation Professionals Australia was engaged by the field Operator to conduct NORM surveys including external gamma and surface contamination measurements of the rig infrastructure and other potentially NORM-impacted equipment recovered from downhole. Sampling was also conducted with the locations selected from the knowledge of the process streams.
This main aim of this project was to ensure that any elevated levels of NORM identified during the field surveys were managed safely and in compliance with the applicable regulatory requirements.
This is a part of NORM management.
