Video shows Gulf of Mexico water on fire after gas leak – .


Mexican state oil company Petróleos Mexicanos, also known as Pemex, said a gas leak was discovered in the 12-inch submarine pipeline near a rig in the oilfield of Ku-Maloob-Zaap. Fire crews were able to suffocate the swirling, flaming mass of water around 10:45 a.m., the company said. No injuries were reported.

Ángel Carrizales, Executive Director of the Mexican Oil Safety Regulatory Agency ASEA, tweeted that the leak “Did not generate any spills” but did not specify what exactly was on fire.

The cause of the incident is still under investigation, but as usual, Twitter users had their own ideas of what exactly was going on.
