Pipeline Leak in Western ND

Posted: Updated:


Crews in western North Dakota are working to clean up another pipeline leak near Medora.
The North Dakota Department of Health says a fluid spill in Billings County has leaked about 560 barrels of production fluid into a dry drainage. Production fluid is the mixture of oil, gas and water that flows to the surface of an oil well.
The Department of Health says some of the material has reached a flowing drainage, as well.
Continental Resources owns the well. So far, about 100 barrels of fluid have been recovered. 
Crews have built berms on the site to prevent further leakage. The NDDoH will be doing water testing over the weekend.
