BISMARCK, ND (KFGO AM) -- Governor Jack Dalrymple has pressed a top official from Tesoro for answers on the pipeline leak that spilled more than 20,000 barrels of crude oil on a wheat field in northwestern North Dakota last month.  During a one hour meeting Thursday, the governor told Tesoro Logistics Senior Vice President of Operations Dan Romasko that Tesoro must answer questions about the company’s notification and response to the spill; the company's process and the timeframe in determining the extent of the spill; the company’s communication plan during and since the spill; the company’s future plans for the pipeline’s maintenance, monitoring and operations of the pipeline before and after the spill; and Tesoro’s plan to reclaim land contaminated by the oil spill.

Tesoro pledged, as an initial step, to improve its communications to the public through a website expected to go on-line today.
