NEW YORK, Feb 14 (Reuters) - A Whiting Petroleum oil well in North Dakota was leaking 50-70 barrels per day of drilling fluid on Friday after a well blowout on Thursday afternoon, the company said.

The leak, which contained fluids used in fracking, was contained and was not flowing into any nearby waterways, a spokesman said.
