RE-Assessment of RadiologicalL Hazards of Naturally Occuring Radioactive Materials (Norm) From The Jubilee Oilfields OF Ghana

ABSTRACT This study re-assesses the radiological hazards of Naturally Occurring Radioactive Materials (NORM) on workers and the general public due to continuous exploration and production of crude oil and waste generated from the Jubilee Oilfields of Ghana. The specific activities of 234U, 238U, 230Th, 232Th, 226Ra, 210Pb, 234Th, 228Ra, 224Ra and 40K in crude oil and NORM waste samples have been estimated using Sodium Iodide detector and alpha spectrometry after radiochemical separation...
