Pipeline leaks production fluid in western ND
Question of the Day
MEDORA, N.D. (AP) - About 560 barrels of production fluid have leaked from a pipeline into a drainage system in Billings County in western North Dakota.
Kris Roberts with state’s Department of Health says the fluid is saltwater brine that is injected back into a geological formation to push oil toward production wells.
Oklahoma-based Continental Resources operates the pipeline. State officials say the company reported that the fluid leaked from a pipeline into a dry drainage, and some of the material reached a flowing drainage.
Roberts says the fluid also went through a stockman’s pasture.
Officials say about 100 barrels of fluid had been recovered as of Saturday afternoon. Berms have been built on the site to prevent fluid from flowing elsewhere.
State inspectors have visited the site to test the water and soil.
