    The oil and gas fields in the area tend to have a very thin dome on top keeping the hydrocarbons in. This looks like a breakthrough of some kind, though the question would be what ignited it.

    What a nice sunset. Oh wait

  3. First the ocean on fire and now this???

  4. wackintoshdotnet says:

    I used to play bass for Mud Volcano.

    More fucking Ocean fires

    2021, the year the sea finally burnt down?

    A mud volcano? Never seen mud explode like that…

    So the ocean being on fire is really becoming a common theme this summer. Huh.

  9. rideincircles says:

    It’s 2021. We just had 2 giant fires and explosions in the ocean this week. Nothing to be concerned about, please look the other way.

    Mud volcano would be my first guess. As I am a reddit expert

    Is that the colossal Titan????

  12. 518Peacemaker says:

    Imagine being a sailor in say the 1760s and you happen upon this?

  13. Tobleroneoneone says:

    If I had a nickel for every time the sea had burst into flames in the past week, I’d have two nickels, which isn’t much but it’s weird it happened twice.

  14. NotGaryGary says:

    Mother earth seems to currently be saying,” fine! You little fuckers want it hot! Let’s get it hot!”

  15. Big oil fields are igniting.

  16. Ninja_In_Shaddows says:

    Mother earth is pissed.

  17. I clicked on the post without reading the title and I thought: *”how nice! what a pretty sunset :0*”

    Then the explosion happened and I had a very different range of emotions :(((

  18. Playerhater812 says:

    Seeing that mushroom cloud at the beginning, my first reaction would be “nuclear test”. I would not say there and film it.

  19. BrisketWrench says:

    Mud Volcano is what I call my butthole the day after I eat too many mango habanero boneless from Buffalo Wild Wings.

  20. FriesWithThat says:

    Container ships, containers, wind, no wind, rogue waves, rogue whales, mud volcanoes: just one more thing to worry about sailing around on the ocean.

  21. 9b807a94cd717be9a7a1 says:

    Sadly no shockwave

  22. Australiana says:

    Or, ok hear me out, it may have been caused by the oil platform?

    *The Earth’s play-by-play announcer:*

    “He’s heating up!”

  24. stumpytoes says:

    Surely this and the gulf of Mexico fire are the start of an alien invasion?

  25. Sullyville says:

    Smoke on the water. A fire in the sky.

  26. SaTan_luvs_CaTs says:

    So what is this like the second fire in the ocean in the matter of a week?

  27. The earth is shooting at us

  28. Trilla_Gorilla_420 says:

    Just more of the world falling apart. By the way, the fuck is a mud volcano?

  29. flimspringfield says:

    “Mud explosion”

    Shit we’ve seen the ocean on fire this last week.

  30. Wearemakers says:

    2020: “at least the ocean isn’t on fire”
    2021: “hold my beer”

  31. JunkiesAndWhores says:

    Spins random excuse generator…”Mud”

    “Mud? Mud slide? We can’t blame an explosion in the middle of the sea on a mud slide!”

    Spins again… “Volcano”.

    Pats machine. “Good random excuse generator”

  32. GabrielDunn says:

    What the fudge is a mud volcano? And why does it look like an oil fire?

  33. Kindofsickofyou says:

    It never ceases to amaze me the creative ways Mother Nature comes up with to murder us

  34. PaulaDeenSlave says:

    Right, then some swamp gas. . from Venus. . .

  35. MiddleAgedGrump says:

    ‘Mud Vulcano’ sounds like the fatal consequence of ingesting Guinness and Taco Bell together.

  36. I just have an image of a Russian of official in sunglasses, smoking a cigarette.

    Reporter: “Did an oil platform just explode?”

    Official: “Nyet. It was a… mud volcano.”

  37. Turn your thermostat down 3 more degrees. On it.

  38. I mean, these past few days could have been a buffet for conspiracies: “And the seas will burn! Fire raising form the waves!”

    There, join my cult.

    I think this video is from the oil rig.
