    A ConocoPhillips Canada gas well is burning in a remote area of northeast-ern British Columbia. The company said in a news release that it does not know how long it will take to get control of the fire, which broke out early Nov. 12. A rig crew has been removed from the site, but no injuries have been reported. The company said it has set up roadblocks and air monitoring stations in the area. A company spokesman said the fire was sparked by an influx of gas that damaged the rig. In a bid to contain the leak, the company is likely to drill a relief well, a process that could take up to a couple of weeks. Sasol, the GTL specialist, and Petronas of Malaysia have entered into a strategic partnership covering an offshore hydrocarbon exploration program in Mozambique, where drilling commenced in early October. Sasol will continue as operator of the joint venture consortium.
