The injury count includes four PEMEX employees and 12 contractor employees. Of the four dead, one is a PEMEX employee, one a Cotemar employee, and two not yet identified, according to the PEMEX report.

PEMEX CEO Emilio Lozoya said the incident will have a minimal impact on production since this is a processing rather than production platform.
