The CEO of Mexican state oil firm Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) has said that a deadly fire aboard the E-Ku A2 oil platform in the Gulf of Mexico may have been caused by a gas leak.

Five rig workers were killed in the fire, two are missing and six were injured when the platform caught fire on Sunday in the Ku-Maloob-Zaap field in the southern Gulf.

DNA testing is being used to establish the identity of two scorched bodies found in a control room.

“This is preliminary because they are doing the analysis to know in detail what happened, but it is presumed that there was a gas leak at the time that maintenance work was being carried out on this platform,” Pemex CEO Octavio Romero said in an interview with local media.
