MEXICO CITY, June 23 (Reuters) - Mexican national oil company Pemex said on Tuesday the impact on crude oil output in the Akal field from a platform accident is "minimal," involving 15,000 barrels of deferred oil production.

Pemex suffered an accident on Monday caused by an oil and gas leak on its Akal-H platform, part of the Akal complex, one of the most productive areas within Cantarell, which when it was discovered in the late 1970s was one of the world's largest oil fields.
