Tesoro to replace part of leaking ND pipeline

Email

Tesoro Logistics LP will repair and replace a 200-foot section of the 20-year old North Dakota pipeline that leaked 20,600 barrels of Bakken oil onto farmland in late September, the company said on Tuesday.

The six-inch pipeline, which runs 35 miles, was carrying oil to a rail facility outside Columbus in northwest North Dakota when it ruptured. A local farmer, who was harvesting wheat on his farm, discovered oil spouting from the line on Sept. 29.
