I’m sure it’ll all be fine, and that the state regulators were doing their job. Ha ha, just kidding!
WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) — Workers are attempting to contain an out-of-control oil well in North Dakota, authorities said Friday.
North Dakota regulators said a well near Watford City in the western part of the state has been leaking oil, gas and water since Thursday.
The Oil and Gas Division said 300 barrels of oil and water have been contained and recovered at the well location. They described the incident as a mechanical failure at a wellhead.
An unknown amount of mist also moved off of the well location. Regulators said they are trying to figure out where the mist settled.
But they also said there is no immediate health risk.
