WATFORD CITY, N.D. (AP) — A spill of 12,600 gallons of oil is being cleaned up at a well site in McKenzie County.

The state’s Oil and Gas Division says Oasis Petroleum North America reported the Monday spill at the well 8 miles north of Watford City and cited a valve leak as the cause.

The spilled oil was contained on-site and most had been cleaned up by Wednesday afternoon. A state official inspected the site and is monitoring cleanup.
