Oil And Gas

“Able has utilised the Radioactive Waste Adviser (RWA), Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA) and Radiation Protection Training services offered by Aurora and has been delighted with the quality of services provided.” – Dave Quelch, Able Instruments & Controls Limited

The Importance of Radiation Protection in the Oil and Gas Sector

It is vital that organisations operating within this industry protect both their staff and the integrity of the drilling and ancillary equipment from radioactive contamination to ensure that staff remain safe and that production continues with minimal downtime.
Aurora has extensive experience and expertise of working on oil and gas installations in the UK and overseas. We provide radiation safety services to the UK’s largest onshore oil and gas recovery company as well as support and training courses to companies in the Middle East.
Our experts can provide radiological protection and radioactive waste advice, monitoring services, and training courses that cover all aspects of work with radioactivity in the oil and gas industry for both naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) and where radioactive sources are used in the production process.

Radiation protection plays a fundamental role in the oil and gas industry. Advancing technologies and drilling methods have changed the profile of wastes that are produced, leading to an increased risk of radiation exposure and contamination for both staff and equipment.

Aurora’s experience, and knowledge makes it exceptionally well-placed to provide practical advice to enable operators to reduce the radiological hazards to staff, reduce operating costs, minimise downtime, and support waste disposal methods, leading to the cost effective management of radiological safety within the organisation.

Case Study: Radiological Consultancy Advice

Able Instruments & Controls Ltd

The challenge was to ensure these gauges containing radioactive sources were transported to three different countries for installation and commission as the oil rig was being built.

Able has no hesitation in recommending Aurora to other organisations and it endorses Aurora’s declaration that it is the leading provider of radiation protection services in the UK.
