The pipeline caught on fire in the Gulf of Mexico

The gas pipeline controlled by the Mexican oil company Pamex has caught on fire in the Gas Leak in the Gulf of Mexico because of the leaking. The fire burned for more than five hours before it was extinguished.

How Did the Gas Leak Happened in the Gulf of Mexico?

Just a few days ago, a 78 meters deep gas line leaked and caught fire that raged for hours in the Gulf of Mexico. The circular flame circles formed on the 2nd of July at 5:15 a.m. after a pipeline leak. The flames became such a shape that it almost resembled an underwater volcanic eruption.

According to the statements made by Pamex; It took more than five hours for the flames to be extinguished, with no casualties or injuries. Various images and videos of the incident showed ships dousing water onto the flames. It took more than 5 hours to finally extinguish the flames. The fire was under control at 10.45 a.m. and valves connected to the pipeline were shut off. It was stated that no one was injured or lost their life.

The authorities will investigate the leaking that occurred in the Gas Leak in the Gulf of Mexico. How this incident affected marine life and how much damage it caused is still a question and has not been answered. Since Friday, company officials have not given a clear answer to this situation. Recommendations are in favor of allowing researchers to explore the area to assess any harm to marine life. With this explosion, comments are made that such explosions will be encountered frequently in cases where we keep using oil and natural gas instead of cleaner technology and energy.
