Train derailment won't slow ND oil production

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's top oil regulator says the fiery train derailment near Casselton likely won't have any impact on oil production.

Department of Mineral Resources Director Lynn Helms says he expects companies to use alternative rail routes to move crude to market.

The BNSF Railway train derailed Monday near Casselton. A series of explosions sent massive fireballs and a smoke plume into the air. Some cars are still burning a day later.

The cause of the derailment is not known. No one was hurt.
