Small fire breaks out on another Mariner Energy platform

By Phaedra Friend Troy

Another Mariner Energy-operated production platform in the Gulf of Mexico has caught fire, according to a report from the Associated Press.

The fire was a small one and put out quickly with a water hose and fire extinguisher, reports AP. The fire ignited when a maintenance crewmember was using a sawing device. The fire was extinguished, no one was injured, and work resumed.

The Mariner platform is located 109 miles south of Lafayeet and has not been producing oil or natural gas for four years.

Just last week, a fire broke out on the Mariner-operated Vermillion 380 production platform, forcing the 13 crewmembers overboard. All personnel were safely rescued, and the fire did not cause the platform to leak any hydrocarbons.
