The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division says there was a brine spill Sunday, about 13 miles North of New Town.
Brine is a byproduct of oil production.
BNN North Dakota, LLC reported 800 barrels of brine were released due to a pipeline leak. That’s the equivalent of about 34,000 gallons.
It’s on the Iverson 11-14H CTB central tank battery location.
As of Sunday, cleanup was underway and 400 barrels of brine had been recovered.
A North Dakota Oil and Gas inspector has been to the location and will continue to monitor the situation and remediation.
