Brazil oil regulator says 3 dead, 10 injured in Petrobras platform explosion
RIO DE JANEIRO Feb 11 (Reuters) - An explosion at an offshore Petrobras oil and natural gas platform killed three workers and injured 10 more, Brazil's oil regulator ANP confirmed in a statement on Wednesday.
The explosion, caused by a gas leak, occurred on a floating oil platform (FPSO) called Cidade de São Mateus which is owned by Norwegian-listed BW Offshore and contracted to Petroleo Brasileiro SA, as Petrobras is formally known. (Reporting by Stephen Eisenhammer; Editing by Chris Reese)
