Or. Admin. R. 333-113-0010 - Agreement With Well Owner of Operator

(1) No licensee must perform well logging operations with a sealed source(s) unless, prior to commencement of the operation, the licensee has a written agreement with the well operator, well owner, drilling contractor or landowner. This written agreement must identify who will meet the following requirements:
(a) In the event that a well to be logged, using radioactive material, penetrates a potable aquifer or contains potable water, that well must be cased from top to bottom prior to the well-logging;
(b) In the event a sealed source is lodged downhole, a reasonable effort at recovery will be made;
(c) No person shall attempt to recover a sealed source in a manner which, in the licensee's opinion, could result in its rupture; and
(d) In the event a decision is made to abandon the sealed source down hole, the requirements of OAR 333-113-0501(3) must be met within 30 days.

NOTE: A written agreement between the licensee and the well owner or operator is not required if the licensee and the well owner, or operator, are part of the same corporate structure or otherwise similarly affiliated.

(2) The licensee must retain a copy of the written agreement after the completion of the well logging operation in accordance with 333-100-0057.
