BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota’s Oil and Gas Division is looking into a saltwater spill in Mountrail County over the weekend.

EOG Resources Inc. reported Saturday that 259 barrels of saltwater was released and contained, with all but 10 barrels recovered. A barrel holds 42 gallons. Saltwater is a byproduct of oil production.

Equipment failure was cited as the cause of the spill at a storage tank site about 7 miles north of Parshall. A state inspector was visiting the site Monday.
