A leak caused about 660 barrels, or 27,720 gallons, of brine to spill on Friday at a well site in McKenzie County, according to a statement released by the North Dakota Oil and Gas Division.

Zavanna reported Monday the brine, a waste byproduct of oil production, was contained on the well site about 4 miles northeast of Cartwright. The spill was caused by a connection leak.

A state inspector has been to the site and will monitor any additional cleanup.
