Oil Spill Near Medora

Posted: Updated:

Crews in western North Dakota are working to clean up yet another pipeline leak. The leak came from Billings County which is about 10 miles south of Medora.

The health department says Continental Resources reported that nearly 560 barrels of production fluid has leaked into a dry drainage and flowing drainage.

Production fluid is a mixture of gas, oil and water that flows to the surface of an oil well. So far, about 100 gallons have been cleaned up.     

State health inspectors tested the water and soil levels this weekend.
