BELFIELD, N.D. -- A tank leak caused 773 barrels, or 32,466 gallons, of brine to spill at a saltwater disposal well in Billings County, the North Dakota Oil and Gas Division said Monday.

Cypress Energy Partners reported the spill occurred Friday about 9 miles north of Belfield. About 20 barrels, or 840 gallons, of oil also spilled. The contamination was contained within the diking on site and has been recovered, according to a spill report.
