Workers Evacuated from Pemex Platform amid Gas Leak

Eighty-five workers have been evacuated from a Pemex-owned platform in the Gulf of Mexico after a gas leak was discovered.

Mexico’s national oil company said in a Tweet on Tuesday that the workers were evacuated as a precaution measure from the satellite platform Sihil-A, located in an oil field in the Bay of Campeche.

According to Pemex, there have been no reported injuries or fire.

The company said that it was controlling the gas leak, discovered on Tuesday, at around 9 pm local time.

This is the fourth incident involving Pemex-run rigs in the Gulf of Mexico this year. Two previous incidents took the toll of at least six lives.
