Dunn County Spill

13K gallons of brine spilled, recovered at Dunn County well


The Associated Press - March 12, 2019

DUNN CENTER, N.D. - An equipment problem is being blamed for the spill of about 13,000 gallons of saltwater at an oil and gas well in Dunn County.

The state Oil and Gas Division says Bruin E&P Operating reported Monday that 310 barrels of brine had spilled the previous day at a well about 15 miles north of Dunn Center, due to a valve or piping connection leak. Brine, or saltwater, is a byproduct of energy production.

All of the spilled saltwater was contained on site and recovered. A state inspector went to the site and will monitor any additional cleanup.
