The Mexican state oil company reported on Friday, July 2, that it suffered a rupture in a submarine pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico, sending flames to the surface in the Gulf waters.

Petroleos Mexicanos stated that it had sent firefighting boats to pump more water onto the flames.

Pemex, as the company is known, stated that no one was hurt in the incident in the offshore field Ku-Maloob-Zaap.

The leak occurred around Friday morning about 150 metres from a drilling rig. The company reported that the gas leak was contained about five hours later.

But the incident resulted in the strange view of boiling flame balls beneath the surface of the Gulf of Mexico.

The magnitude of the environmental damage caused by the gas leak and the offshore fireball was not clear.

Miyoko Sakashita, director of the oceans program for the Center for Biological Diversity, wrote that “the frightening footage of the Gulf of Mexico is showing the world that offshore drilling is dirty and dangerous.”

Sakashita further added, “These horrific accidents will continue to harm the Gulf if we don’t end offshore drilling once and for all.”
