On 8 December 2016 The Associated Press reported:
A company with a history of oil field-related spills in North Dakota and Montana is being hampered by winter weather in its cleanup of a 'significant' pipeline break that leaked crude oil into a tributary of the Little Missouri River in western North Dakota, a regulator said Thursday [8 December]. Bill Suess, an environmental scientist with the North Dakota Health Department, said the Belle Fourche Pipeline Co. spill was discovered Monday [5 December] by a landowner near Belfield. The cause of the leak is under investigation and the amount of the spill is unknown, in part because of recent blizzards and subzero temperatures throughout North Dakota, he said. ... The spill in the creek is about 20 miles upstream of the Little Missouri River. Belle Fourche Pipeline is part of Casper, Wyoming-based True Cos. ...True Cos. operates at least three pipeline companies ... Since 2006 the companies have reported 36 spills totaling 320,000 gallons of petroleum products. Most of the product spilled was never recovered, including after a January 2015 pipeline break into the Yellowstone River. ... True Cos. also owns Black Hills Trucking Inc., which is accused of illegally dumping saltwater, a byproduct of oil production, in 2014 on a road in northwestern North Dakota.
