BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Health Department says it is working with Continental Resources to help clean up after a natural gas leak in McKenzie County.

Department spokesman Bill Suess (sees) says an undetermined volume of natural gas and other hydrocarbons was released, as well as a mixture of saltwater and oil.

Suess says it’s not known how much produced water was spilled, but it is likely less than 10 barrels. It’s not known how long cleanup will take.

The accident happened Tuesday when a blowout preventer valve malfunctioned.
