2 reported dead in explosion at Mexico Pemex refinery

MEXICO CITY - An explosion in a visbreaker unit at a Pemex refinery in central Mexico killed two workers on Saturday but did not affect production, a spokesman for the state-run company told Reuters.
The fire at the oil refinery in Tula, one of Mexico's biggest refining facilities, was under control, he said.
The explosion happened during a trial of the visbreaker, a unit that reduces the viscosity of petroleum and reduces the quantity of residual oil produced in the refining process
