Undersea pipeline rupture causes fire in Gulf of Mexico

Mexico’s state-owned oil company, Petroleos Mexicanos said Friday it suffered a rupture in an undersea gas pipeline in the Gulf of Mexico, sending flames boiling to the surface in the Gulf waters. Pemex, as the company is known, said nobody was injured in the incident in the offshore Ku-Maloob-Zaap field and it had dispatched fire control boats to pump more water over the flames. The company said the leak occurred about 137 meters from a drilling platform and it had brought it under control about five hours later.
