Pemex: No Signs of Any Quake Damage Yet, Ops OK

change text size

MEXICO CITY (Dow Jones Newswires), Apr. 27, 2009

Mexican state oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) is operating normally despite an earthquake that hit Mexico Monday and an outbreak of swine flu, said a company spokesman.

"We haven't seen any damage yet," said the spokesman, adding that the company is still checking for earthquake damage and it is premature to rule out any incidents.

The earthquake did not hit an oil zone. The epicenter of the 6.0 magnitude quake was in Guerrero state, home to the coastal Pacific resort of Acapulco. Guerrero is not an oil producing state.

Concerning swine flu, which has claimed an estimated 147 lives in Mexico over the past month, the spokesman said the outbreak has not has an impact on Pemex's operations. He said the company is taking precautionary measures such as sending employees home who have flu symptoms.
