TIOGA, N.D. – A pipeline spill caused about 1 barrel, or 42 gallons, of natural gas condensate to release about 10 miles south of Tioga, the North Dakota Department of Health said Wednesday.

Hess Tioga Gas Plant is the owner of the natural gas gathering pipeline. The spill affected an intermittent drainage of Dry Fork Creek, health officials said.

Condensate consists of heavier hydrocarbons present in natural gas that condense as liquids in a pipeline. The health department and an environmental contractor have been on location.
