TENORM is an abbreviation for Technologically Enhanced Naturally Occuring Radioactive Material. TENORM may present in the form of product or waste containing enhanced level of radionuclide activity concentration as a result of technological processes. Not all NORM processing will end-up with TENORM production. Same processes only produce material with similar activity to the normal soil, i.e. no enhancement of radionuclide activity concentration. In Naturallly Occuring Radioactive Material processing, enhancement can be compared with the activity level of the raw material used. In oil and gas industry, the activity level of normal soil can be used as a reference to evaluate enhancement.
