Abstract

As the Kurdistan region starts a huge investment in the field of oil and gas, the assessment of radioactivity due to naturally occurring radioactive material becomes important. The dose rates and associated situational doses in the oil company and the radioisotope concentrations in the production mud and crude oil sample will be determined and then compared to the standard safe levels set internationally. Keywords: norm, natural radioactivity, oil production, drilling wells.
