ND official: Natural gas liquids spill at gathering pipeline

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota Health Department says about 42 gallons of natural gas liquids spilled at a gathering pipeline and entered a tributary to the Green River in Billings County.

North Dakota Water Quality Director Karl Rockeman says Monday’s spill of about one barrel of condensate into Spring Creek was reported by pipeline operator Oneok Rockies Midstream.

Rockeman says staff members from the North Dakota Industrial Commission Oil and Gas Division and the Department of Health are at the site and will continue to monitor the cleanup. The site is about 13 miles north and four miles east of Belfield.

Condensate is a byproduct of natural gas production.
