Company Reports Another Oil Spill Near Ross

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division says an oil and saltwater spill near Ross has been contained.

Well owners Stat Oil and Gas estimate that 427 barrels of oil and 142 barrels of saltwater were released.

The company says a valve failure may have caused the incident, and a state inspector has been sent to the site. This is the second spill from Statoil in less than a week.

A Statoil saltwater pipeline near Arnegard leaked 75 barrels of saltwater that may have spilled into Timber Creek.
