Pipeline expected to remain closed after oil spill in Montana

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 01/20/2015 - 13:29
(Reuters) - A small but heavily subscribed pipeline that transports 42,000 barrels a day of crude oil from North Dakota's Bakken region is expected to remain closed on Tuesday after a weekend breach that spilled 1,200 barrels of crude into the Yellowstone River near Glendive, Montana. Bridger Pipeline LLC could not say how much of the light crude flowed into the river or when the pipeline will reopen. The Environmental Protection Agency said it would be coordinating a response to the spill over the next several days. The leak in the line serving producers helped narrow Bakken crude's differential to the West Texas Intermediate benchmark price on Monday, which shrunk to $5.40 per barrel from Friday's settlement price of $5.80 under WTI, according to Shorcan Energy Brokers.
