On Friday, a pipeline near the Yucatan Peninsula in the Gulf of Mexico ruptured and caused a fire in the water. Due to the stunning visual effects, the event is now spreading around the world, and the “fire eye” in the water is right next to the oil platform, which looks like lava. The fire started with an underwater pipeline connected to the platform of the Ku Maloob Zaap oil facility in Pemex. Three ships are supporting efforts to control the fire.
🚨 When a fire broke out in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, it was located in the Strait of Campeche, a few meters from the Ku-Charly platform (within the Ku Maloob Zaap Integral Production Asset)

An underwater natural gas pipeline caught fire in the Gulf of Mexico. It is connected to a platform operated by Mexican oil giant Pemex, which produced 726,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day at the time of the incident. https://t.co/xLzQOkumWhpic.twitter.com/ieqCVhtD95

This elicited a reaction from leftists who are pursuing oil and attacking capitalism.
Here are a few examples.

In addition to this argument there is a small problem, kids. You are just burned by your own narrative.
The company behind this is Pemex, which was established in 1938 by nationalizing private companies. Literally means the opposite of “capitalism.” It is the state that seizes the means of production. Pemex also has a long history of “major industrial accidents at its facilities”, According to Reuters.
Not to mention that it also has a bad record of contamination and was name One of the biggest polluters in the world. When the government seizes control, they will manage things the way the government usually manages everything-very bad. When there is no motivation to do things better (you know, the whole capitalist thing), you tend to get poor quality jobs. Therefore, these people who want to stifle capitalism just cite a good example to illustrate why socialism is bad.
Pemex stated that there were no reports of casualties, and the production of the project was not affected after the gas leak occurred at around 5:15 am local time.It goes out completely by 10:30 in the morning
The company added that it will investigate the cause of the fire. [….]
Angel Carrizales, head of the Mexican oil safety regulator ASEA, wrote on Twitter that the incident “did not cause any leakage.” He did not explain what was burning on the water.
and so. What is burning? However, there is another problem. When the government has the control of these things, it should also be the government to deal with this kind of error, which will naturally produce an internal conflict with private companies not necessarily.
This state-owned company is also in serious financial difficulties.
As the oil fields mature and Pemex lacks the resources to invest in new mining technologies, the output of Ku-Maloob-Zaap has been declining. For fifteen years, Pemex’s output has been declining every year, and its debt is the largest of all oil majors, approaching 114 billion U.S. dollars.
But in the “Internet of Everything” example, they may have been seeking to make money from an unlikely source-Hunter Biden.we wrote Regarding how Hunter tried to reach an agreement with Mexican billionaires, he introduced them to Joe Biden, and when he was there, he took them to the vice president’s residence. Hunter and one of his partners even flew to Mexico with Joe. The two Air Force are committed to a “huge deal.” As this email shows, at least one thing is trying to reach an agreement on the “privatization of Pemex.”
In 2015, Biden (H.biden) sent an email to his partner to participate in the privatization of Pemex, the Mexican national oil company, along with Burisma. #Biden corruption pic.twitter.com/qZlZfILGyS
