PARSHALL – An equipment failure caused 259 barrels, or 10,878 gallons, of saltwater to release from a site about 7 miles north of Parshall on Saturday, the Oil and Gas Division said Monday.

EOG Resources reported the spill at a central tank battery site in Mountrail County. The spill was contained on the location and all but 10 barrels, or 420 gallons, have been recovered. Crews will scrape off any saturated soil on the well pad location, said spokeswoman Alison Ritter. The cause of the spill was attributed to a fitting on a hose that failed, Ritter said.

A state inspector planned to visit the site Monday.
