BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - The North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality says about 180 barrels of crude oil spilled from a bulk oil tank in Dunn County.

It happened about 3.5 miles northeast of Killdeer on a Leland Oil and Gas well pad.

Investigators say a portion of it leaked off the well pad, but did not impact surface water areas.

The company has begun cleanup efforts as state inspectors are monitoring the work.
