Striking video shows flames and boiling water rising to the surface of the Gulf of Mexico, where an undersea gas line ruptured on Friday.
Petróleos Mexicanos, Mexico’s state-owned oil company also known as Pemex, said in a statement that security protocols were immediately implemented, and firefighting vessels were dispatched to the scene.
The gas leak, which erupted roughly 150 meters from a platform, was contained after about five hours, the company said.
No one was injured, Pemex's statement added.
