Blacktail spill haunts Summit Midstream’s latest project

At this time two years ago, the gathering system pipeline operated by Summit Midstream near Blacktail Creek North of Williston was probably leaking. It wouldn’t be discovered until January of 2015 when the resulting spill became the largest in North Dakota history. Today, the company finds themselves in the role of example for the industry that’s still struggling to weed out bad operators, improve safety, and produce better outcomes.
