WILLIAMS COUNTY, N.D. - The state’s oil and gas division says 400 barrels of produced water spilled 7 miles north of Tioga on Sunday.

The cause of the spill was due to freezing temperatures, which caused a pump to leak.

The pump is operated by Liberty Midstream Solutions, LLC.

Environmental experts say the spilled product has been fully contained and recovered.
