Pipe leak releases 2,380 barrels of brine

ALAMO — A pipe leak released about 2,380 barrels — or 99,960 gallons — of brine at a saltwater disposal well near here, but the release was contained on the site, the Department of Mineral Resources said Monday.

Frontier Ventures reported that the leak occurred Saturday at the Krabseth 1 disposal well, about seven miles southwest of Alamo in Williams County.

All but one barrel of saltwater has been recovered, the department said. A state inspector has been sent to the site.
