Update: A Spokesman for the oil giant said that at least four people have died and several have been injured in the blaze.
RT report: Pemex said on Twitter that the fire on the Abkatun Permanente platform in the oil-rich Campeche Bay broke out overnight and eight firefighting boats were tackling the blaze.
Authorities have registered at least 45 people injured so far, a spokesman for emergency services in Ciudad del Carmen said, according to Reuters. No fatalities have been reported.
In recent years Pemex – Latin America’s second largest company – has suffered a number of accidents. At least 37 people were killed by a blast at the company’s Mexico City headquarters in 2013.
Another fire in a Pemex natural gas facility in September 2012 claimed 26 lives.
The incident comes nearly five years after the devastating 2010 BP incident in the Gulf of Mexico – the largest accidental marine oil spill in the history of the petroleum industry.
