MEXICO CITY Feb 7 (Reuters) - Nine workers were injured when a fire broke out on a Pemex oil processing platform in the Gulf of Mexico, but the incident is now under control, the Mexican oil giant said in a tweet on Sunday without saying whether output was affected.

The fire occurred on the offshore Abkatun A Permanente processing platform in Mexico's oil-rich Bay of Campeche where a fire claimed seven lives in April of last year. (Reporting By Alexandra Alper; Editing by Simon Gardner)
