FINDLAY, Ohio, Sept. 26, 2013 - Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: MPC)
announced today that its board of directors has approved an additional $2
billion share repurchase authorization through September 2015. This
authorization is in addition to the previous authorization, which had $1.34
billion remaining as of June 30, 2013. MPC may utilize various methods to effect
the repurchases, which could include open market repurchases, negotiated block
transactions, accelerated share repurchases or open market solicitations for
shares, some of which may be effected through Rule 10b5-1 plans. The timing of
repurchases will depend upon several factors, including market and business
conditions, and repurchases may be discontinued at any time.

"Our focus continues to be returning capital to our shareholders on a sustained
basis while making value-enhancing investments in the business," said MPC
President 
and CEO Gary R. Heminger. "Today's announcement reinforces this ongoing commitment to our shareholders." # # # About Marathon Petroleum Corporation MPC is the nation's fourth-largest refiner, with a crude oil refining capacity of approximately 1.7 million barrels per calendar day in its seven-refinery system.
