     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - State agencies are trying to determine if a recent saltwater spill in northern North Dakota spread beyond the original location. The North Dakota Oil and Gas Division was notified Monday of a release that happened September 24th about 12 miles northwest of Maxbass in Bottineau County.
 
     Great American Royalties Inc. reported that 470 barrels of saltwater were released due to a tank overflow. The saltwater was recovered. The initial report indicated the incident was contained to the location, but Oil and Gas Division staff is working with staff from the North Dakota Department of Health to determine if the spill spread. Results of soil samples are pending. A state inspector has been to the site and will monitor any additional cleanup.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Manitoba and Missouri have appealed a federal judge's decision that would bring Missouri River water to residents of northwestern North Dakota. North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem called the appeal filed Tuesday a "disappointment." He says specific legal issues being appealed have not been disclosed. Judge Rosemary Collyer in August ruled that the $244 million Northwest Area Water Supply project complies with federal environmental law.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's oil production rose slightly in August and remained above 1 million barrels per day for the seventh consecutive month. The Department of Mineral Resources says the state produced an average of 1.08 million barrels of oil daily in August. That's up from 1.04 million barrels in July. North Dakota also produced 1.94 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day in August, up from 1.89 billion cubic feet daily in July.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota officials say the Dakota Access oil pipeline has boosted the state's tax revenues by $18 million in its first three months of operation. State Pipeline Authority director Justin Kringstad tells the Bismarck Tribune that producers have seen a $2 increase per barrel in the average price for Bakken crude in June, July and August, compared to figures from 2016. Kringstad attributes the increase to more competitive transportation costs since the pipeline went into service in June.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - Energy industry officials are applauding a judge's decision to allow the Dakota Access pipeline to continue operating while more environmental assessment is done on its impact on the Standing Rock Sioux. An attorney for the Standing Rock Sioux says the decision is "disappointing."
 
     The $3.8 billion pipeline began moving oil from North Dakota to Illinois in June, but Judge James Boasberg ruled that month more assessment is needed on the project's impact on the tribe. He ruled today the pipeline can continue operating in the meantime.

     BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota regulators have scheduled public meetings on a request by Montana Dakota Utilities to raise its natural gas rates. The proposed increase is for $5.9 million annually over current rates, or a 5.4 percent overall increase. The average residential customer would see a monthly bill increase of just under $3. MDU says it needs additional money to operate and maintain its natural gas pipeline system.

    The North Dakota Public Service Commission will hold public input sessions on Oct. 24 and 25 via interactive television. The sessions also will be webcast with questions submitted through email. A formal public hearing is scheduled next Feb. 28.

The welcome-home party is scheduled November 4th at the Bismarck Event Center, starting at 3 p.m. Tickets are required - $10 for adults and $5 for children age 3 through the 12th grade.
