Whistleblower Details Flawed Construction at ND Gas Plants with Downplayed Huge Spill

Cross link to Latest Breaking News

Partial summary (much more at link above)
A former oil & gas industry employee describes a dangerous safety culture among companies operating in North Dakota and the state's regulators. An underground leak of natural gas condensate estimated at 11 million gallons - comparable to the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill - has continuously been reported as a spill of only 10 gallons until exposed by an earlier whistleblower on desmogblog.com. “North Dakota is basically a Petrostate,” the second whistleblower, Paul Lehto, is quoted as saying. “There is regulatory capture, and sure that happens in other areas, but nowhere is it more extreme than in North Dakota.”
