Cleanup is underway after 345 barrels, or 14,490 gallons, of oil spilled Monday at an oilfield site in Williams County, according to a news release Tuesday from the North Dakota Oil and Gas Division.

Whiting Oil and Gas Corp. reported that the spill at a central tank battery site about 13 miles south of Epping was caused by a leak in a valve or piping connection. The oil was contained within the diking of the facility, the Oil and Gas Division said.

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