Due to the behavior shown by the low pressure system in the Gulf of Mexico, whose career was diverted in the last hours, the Technical Analysis Group Emergency Response Plan for Hurricanes (PREH) of Pemex, recommended the suspension of the removal of offshore platforms in Campeche.

On platforms remain toiling around 16 thousand workers whose activities are directly related to production.

As reported in the morning, as a preventive measure, Petroleos Mexicanos further evictions of maintenance workers, support and ancillary services in the marine area. In total, 11 000 workers were evacuated from the 15,000 who had enlisted, who will return to their work when weather conditions permit.

To carry out the evacuation to the Dos Bocas maritime terminal in Tabasco, and Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche, Pemex ordered 97 ships and 36 helicopters.

PEMEX will continue to timely monitor the weather in the Bay of Campeche and the rest of the regions.
