Interview With Bridger Pipeline On Their Oil Spill Into Yellowstone River

Jan 21, 2015

Bridger Pipeline LLC is based in Casper, Wyoming.

A 12-inch diameter steel pipe carrying Baaken crude oil broke where it crosses the Yellowstone River six miles upstream from Glendive, Montana Saturday.

An estimated 40,000 gallons of oil entered the river, and caused the shutdown of Glendive's drinking water plant.
