BISMARCK — An estimated 10,500 gallons of crude oil spilled Tuesday, Feb. 2, from a pipeline in Dunn County, N.D., according to a news release from the state Department of Environmental Quality.

Wyoming-based Bridger Pipeline reported the spill due to a pipeline fracture about 11 miles northwest of Killdeer, N.D. About 420 gallons of oil flowed onto nearby rangeland, which can render the land temporarily unusable for agriculture.

Department officials will continue inspecting the site and monitoring remediation efforts, according to the release.
