NORM, Who’s NORM?
Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) is a byproduct of many oil and gas type refining processes. NORM can be found/identified when producing propane, natural gas, crude oil, propylene, and polypropylene, just to name a few. When the petrochemical material comes from the production wells; through the pipeline; the product, often containing NORM, begins to accumulate along the pipe walls as scale or rouge. As the product then flows through the pipeline into filtering stations the accumulation becomes more concentrated, and therefore generally has higher radioactive concentrations often found around filter pods.
