Massive North Dakota Oil Leak Proves Native American Protesters Were Right For Fighting ILLEGAL DAPL Pipeline


If you are still wondering why there is such maintained and increasing support for the #NoDAPL protectors, take a look at this: This spill is part of the reason.





Think about 60,000 and more gallons of toxic oil being leaked into a river that provides fresh, drinking water to over 10 million people. Question, would you drink, eat, or swim near this river?  In North Dakota, an oil well from Oasis Petroleum Inc leaked more than 67,000 gallons of crude oils into a tributary in the Missouri River, says Ernest Scheyder of Reuters. 

What has caused the blowout remains unknown, however, state officials believe it may be from the hydraulic fracturing of a well that is nearby. In the industry, this is referred to as “communication” between wells. From the Helming Trust 11-15H well site, thick, and gray smoke rose as many tractor-trailers brought in vacuum trucks and other cleaning equipment. 

The company is trying hard to cap the will leak with a thick mixture of clay and mud, officials in the state say. 





Since the blowout at 11 p.m. local time on Saturday, the company has been working all weekend to retain control of the well, including flying in staff from their headquarters in Houston. So far, every effort made has been unsuccessful, according to local and state officials. This well is in fact, 15 miles south of White Earth, North Dakota in Mountrail County. Scheyder states. “Unlike most blowouts, this one did not produce a geyser of crude oil but a smaller burst roughly 5 feet (1.52 m) in height that sprayed oil onto the well pad. Some of the oil pooled onto the pad and some was carried by a light wind to the White Earth River, a tributary of the Missouri River, roughly 850 feet (260 m) down a nearby cliff.”

“This is not your typical blowout,” says Bill Suess from the state’s Department of Health. A bright shine of oil was on the nearby river, and a reporter from Reuters counted 16 absorbent booms that were installed to keep the oil from going downstream. Reports from state officials, show that approximately 84,000 gallons of saltwater had been leaked from the well. 

Crude oil that was extracted from the state’s Bakken shale formation will usually contain high concentrated   levels of brine (salt water) that has to be separated. Oasis has stated that it was working “to ensure that safe and thorough remediation efforts are completed in a timely fashion.” Oasis has hired a Superior Energy Services to help assist in trying to cap off the well leak. 

When you are considering to not support or support the #NoDAPL movement, take this oil spill as an example. For the future of our children and theirs, please make wise, correct and informed choices that will help, rather than harm others.
