    Abstract :

    The concentration of radon indoor and outdoor have been measured by RAD -7 dives , where radon concentrations in operational units of the Doura refinery in the indoor range from 6.21± 30 Bq /m3 to 12.4± 33 Bq/m3 with an average value of 5.31±18 Bq/m3. In open spaces ranging from 6.21±30 Bq/m3 to (N D) with an average value of 0.44± 2.1 Bq/m3. The result shows that the average radon levels are acceptable. Also, the estimation of annual effective dose (AED) of 222Rn concentration, with the average indoor air (0.1) and outdoor air (0.007), and calculation Working Level values and Working Level Month of 222Rn concentrations, show that all results are within acceptable limits.
