The fire is shown possessing a rounded form and erupting near to the state-owned oil corporation Pemex in footage of the event uploaded on Twitter by various Mexican journalists and media.
According to accounts, a fire was put out in the Gulf of Mexico early Friday, shooting brilliant orange embers into the ocean after a gas leak in a state-owned oil company's underwater pipeline. On numerous social networking sites, the flames were called "eye of fire" because they mimicked molten lava.
According to a Reuters story, Pemex claimed the fire lasted over five hours to totally suppress. The flame seemed to be circular in shape on the footage when it broke a limited area from a Pemex oil rig.
According to Pemex personnel acquainted with the situation, the fire started in an undersea pipeline that leads to a structure at the company's flagship Ku Maloob Zaap oil production.
The Gulf of Mexico's southern rim lies only up the road from this flagship. Pemex said there were no casualties and that oil output from its flagship project was unaffected by the gas leak, which happened about 5:15 a.m. local time.
Angel Carrizales, the chief of Mexico's oil safety agency ASEA, stated on Twitter that the blaze event in the Gulf of Mexico "did not result in any leak." Nevertheless, he declined to explain what was smoldering on the water's surface.
Pemex's flagship project, Ku Maloob Zaap, is the company's largest crude oil producer, accounting for over 40% of the company's daily production of nearly 1.7 million barrels.
