Oil, produced water spills in Billings County caused by equipment failure

By  | 

BELFIELD, N.D. - Last month, the state health department was notified of a two-barrel oil spill in Billings County.

However, since then, more than 500 barrels of oil and 120 barrels of produced water have been recovered. It was caused by failing equipment at a Denbury Onshore site 15 miles northwest of Belfield.

It's unclear if groundwater has been affected.
