NORM Field Sampling Plan: Protocol for Conventional & Unconventional Oil or Gas Drill Cuttings Mobile App
This NORM Field Sampling Plan: Protocol for Conventional & Unconventional Oil or Gas Drill Cuttings Mobile App is designed to ensure your field sampling is safe and compliant.
How does it work?
Use this app in the oil and gas industry's exploratory drilling operations to manage the safe removal process of drilling waste created by rigs. Use this app to ensure operations compliance with the environmental protection agency standards, as relates to, for example, particulate matter that can go airborne and impact public health and safety.
Sampling and analysis should be completed for every 1000 cubic yards of material (cuttings) or per well, whichever is more frequent and at least four discreet samples per well. Unconventional (Shale-Formations) gas wells shall be divided into two distinct sections for sampling and analysis. Unconventional (Shale-Formations) vertical drill cuttings are to include material encountered from the surface to the kick-off-point or above the shale formation. Horizontal drill cutting will include material from the kick-off-point or once the vertical drill encounters the shale formation to the end of the horizontal drilling. Separate or discrete samples will be taken to represent Brine, Pyritic, or Petroleum formations encountered within to drilling process.
