Pemex tries to put out a fire at the Salina Cruz refinery

The Mexican oil company Pemex worked on Saturday to put out the fire that was consumed in a gasoline storage tank at the Salina Cruz refinery, in the most recent accident that affects the state company.

The fire, which started on Friday, had been partially controlled by emergency teams, but the winds reactivated the flames on Saturday, a company source told Reuters, who ruled out damage to other areas of the facility, located in the southern state of Oaxaca.

The source added that no injuries were reported in the incident.

Television images showed a dense plume of black smoke rising from inside the refinery.

Oaxaca Civil Protection reported on its Twitter account that access to the complex was restricted. "With the support of @PolVial_GobOax and @Policia_GobOax, the area is cordoned off to avoid eventualities," he said.

Salina Cruz, Pemex's largest refinery, has a capacity to process 330,000 barrels per day of crude, according to data from Eikon Refinitiv. In August, another fire broke out in its facilities.
