Cleanup of oil spill at ND farm to take 2 more years

From:  Fuel Fix

BISMARCK, N.D. — At Steve and Patty Jensen’s northwestern North Dakota farm, crews have been working around-the-clock after a pipeline break spilled more than 20,000 barrels of oil into their wheat field almost two years ago.

State regulators believe workers will be at the site another 2 ½ years.

“It’s now just become part of our lives,” Patty Jensen said of the massive spill from a Tesoro Corp. pipeline that was discovered in September 2013 by her husband.

“They are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. But it’s so big and it’s not as easy to clean up as they thought it would be,” she said. MORE
