Crude Oil Spill Near New Town, ND

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Department of Health says approximately 690 barrels of crude oil have leaked from an underground pipeline at an oil gathering site 14 miles northeast of New Town..

Kris Roberts with the Department says the company has a perimeter dike at the well site that prevented most of the oil from escaping.

About 640 barrels have been recovered so far.

Roberts says the company, Bridger Pipeline, hasn't determined how the leak came about yet, but they are examining the pipeline to find out.
