BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A fire at a well in Williams County led to the release of 280 barrels of brine.
The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division says the fire happened Saturday at a well 5 miles east of Alamo. Whiting Oil and Gas Corp. reported the brine release Sunday.
All brine was contained on location and cleanup has started. A North Dakota Oil and Gas inspector has been on site and will monitor the cleanup process.
