An above-ground pipeline leak is to blame for an oil and gas spill that impacted the Little Missouri River.
The Department of Health reports a barrel of condensate, which is natural gas liquids separated during oil production, sprayed from a gasket, impacting the nearby river.
The area impacted is about 24 miles from where the Little Missouri and Missouri River meet.
The spill happened about 20 miles northwest of Killdeer on Thursday.
The Department of Health is monitoring cleanup and remediation of both of these spills.
