Killdeer-based Leland Oil and Gas reported the spill occurred about 3.5 miles from Killdeer. A portion of the oil spilled left the well pad, but none of it impacted surface water areas, according to the release.

The spill occurred due to a hole in the oil tank, according to department records. The company is still working to clean up about 1,700 gallons of oil that were not immediately recovered.

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