FINDLAY, Ohio, Aug. 1, 2013 - Marathon Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: MPC) today
reported second-quarter earnings of $593 million, or $1.83 per diluted share,
compared with $814 million, or $2.38 per diluted share, in the second quarter of
2012. For the second quarter of 2013, earnings adjusted for special items were
$632 million, or $1.95 per diluted share, compared with earnings adjusted for
special items of $867 million, or $2.53 per diluted share, for the second
quarter of 2012.

See "References to Earnings" note below. (b)    Earnings adjusted for special items is a financial measure not in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and should not be considered a substitute for earnings as determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.  See below for further discussion of earnings adjusted for special items. "Our second-quarter earnings reflect a strong operating performance by our seven refineries despite some challenging market conditions," said President and Chief Executive Officer Gary R. Heminger. "Our upgraded Detroit refinery and our recently acquired Galveston Bay refinery continue to operate well, and our Speedway and Pipeline Transportation segments both had excellent quarters financially." Heminger said that although MPC's refinery throughputs and overall costs were in line with the company's expectations, a number of factors reduced earnings compared to the strong financial results for the second quarter of last year. "Narrower crude oil price differentials affected our earnings," he said. "In addition, our product price realizations compared to spot market values were lower in the second quarter of this year due in part to volatility in the Chicago market and compliance with the Renewable Fuel Standard." Heminger also noted MPC's continuing shareholder focus in the second quarter. "We paid $113 million in dividends and purchased $882 million of common stock during the second quarter as part of our commitment to return capital to shareholders," he said. "The recent announcement that we have increased our dividend by 20 percent reflects our confidence in the business and further underscores our commitment to total shareholder return over the long term." MPC's remaining share repurchase authorization was approximately $1.3 billion as of June 30. Segment Results Total income from operations was $960 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared with $1.31 billion in the second quarter of 2012. ------------------------------------------------------------------------   Three Months Ended   June 30 (In millions) 2013 2012 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Income from Operations by Segment Refining & Marketing $          903 $       1,325 Speedway 123 107 Pipeline Transportation 58 50 Items not allocated to segments: Corporate and other unallocated items (64) (92) Pension settlement expenses (60) (83) ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Income from operations $          960 $       1,307 ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Refining & Marketing Refining & Marketing segment income from operations was $903 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared with $1.33 billion in the second quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to a $4.95 per barrel reduction in the Refining & Marketing gross margin, which was $6.18 per barrel in the second quarter of 2013, compared with $11.13 per barrel in the second quarter of 2012. MPC's benchmark Light Louisiana Sweet (LLS) crack spread was higher in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012. However, MPC experienced lower product price realizations compared to the spot market product prices used in the LLS crack spread calculation. The company believes the product price realizations were impacted by volatility in the Chicago market and compliance with the Renewable Fuel Standard. In addition, MPC's average crude oil acquisition discount narrowed compared to LLS in the second quarter of 2013. The decrease in the Refining & Marketing gross margin was partially offset by higher refinery throughputs and sales volumes, attributable in large part to the Galveston Bay refinery, which was acquired on Feb. 1, 2013. The Refining & Marketing refined product sales volume was 2.13 million barrels per day (bpd) in the second quarter of 2013, compared with 1.57 million bpd in the second quarter of 2012. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------   Three Months Ended   June 30 (mbpd = thousands of barrels per day) 2013 2012 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Key Refining & Marketing Statistics Refinery throughputs (mbpd) Crude oil refined 1,690 1,208 Other charge and blendstocks          174          131 Total 1,864 1,339 Refined product sales volume (mbpd)((a)) 2,125 1,571 Refining & Marketing gross margin ($/barrel)((b)) $       6.18 $     11.13 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- (a)    Includes intersegment sales (b)    Sales revenue less cost of refinery inputs, purchased products and refinery direct operating costs (including turnaround and major maintenance, depreciation and amortization, and other manufacturing expenses), divided by Refining & Marketing segment refined product sales volume. Speedway Speedway segment income from operations was $123 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared with $107 million in the second quarter of 2012. The $16 million increase was primarily the result of a higher gasoline and distillate gross margin and merchandise gross margin, partially offset by higher expenses associated with the increase in the number of stores operated. Speedway gasoline and distillate gross margin per gallon averaged 17.38 cents in the second quarter of 2013, compared with 16.39 cents in the second quarter of 2012. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------   Three Months Ended   June 30   2013 2012 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Key Speedway Statistics Convenience stores at period-end 1,468 1,455 Gasoline and distillate sales (millions of 781 756 gallons) Gasoline and distillate gross margin $        0.1738 $        0.1639 ($/gallon)((a)) Merchandise sales (in millions) $             806 $             776 Merchandise gross margin (in millions) $             212 $             203 Same store gasoline sales volume (period over period) 0.0% 2.1% Same store merchandise sales excluding cigarettes (period over period) 4.5% 10.1% -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- (a)    The price paid by consumers less the cost of refined products, including transportation, consumer excise taxes and bankcard processing fees, divided by gasoline and distillate sales volume. Pipeline Transportation Pipeline Transportation segment income from operations was $58 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared with $50 million in the second quarter of 2012. The second-quarter 2013 segment income includes 100 percent of the operations of MPLX LP (NYSE: MPLX), a midstream master limited partnership formed by MPC in 2012. The increase in segment income was primarily due to an increase in transportation revenue, partially offset by an increase in operating and depreciation expenses. ------------------------------------------------------------------   Three Months Ended   June 30   2013 2012 ------------------------------------------------------------------ Key Pipeline Transportation Statistics Pipeline throughput (mbpd)((a)) Crude oil pipelines 1,334 1,193 Refined product pipelines        959        954 Total 2,293 2,147 ------------------------------------------------------------------ (a)    On owned common-carrier pipelines, excluding equity method investments. Corporate and Special Items Corporate and other unallocated expenses of $64 million in the second quarter of 2013 were $28 million lower than in the second quarter of 2012. The decrease was primarily due to a reduction in net employee benefit expenses, including lower pension expenses resulting from a pension plan amendment adopted in May 2012. During the second quarter of 2013, MPC recorded pretax pension settlement expenses of $60 million resulting from the level of employee lump sum retirement distributions occurring in 2013, compared with $83 million of pension settlement expenses in the second quarter of 2012. Strong Financial Position and Liquidity On June 30, 2013, the company had $3.1 billion in cash and cash equivalents, an unused $2.5 billion revolving credit agreement and a $1 billion unused trade receivables securitization facility. The company's credit facilities and cash position should provide it with sufficient flexibility to meet its day-to-day operational needs and continue its balanced approach to investing in the business and returning capital to shareholders. As of June 30, 2013, the company's strong financial position was further reflected by its debt-to-total- capital ratio of 22 percent.

Unless otherwise indicated, references to earnings, earnings adjusted for special items and earnings per share are MPC's share after excluding amounts attributable to noncontrolling interests. Non-GAAP Financial Information In addition to earnings determined in accordance with GAAP, MPC has provided supplemental "earnings adjusted for special items," a non-GAAP financial measure that facilitates comparisons to earnings forecasts prepared by stock analysts and other third parties. Such forecasts generally exclude the effects of items that are considered non-recurring, are difficult to predict or to measure in advance or that are not directly related to MPC's ongoing operations. A reconciliation between GAAP earnings and "earnings adjusted for special items" is provided in a table on page 1 of this release. "Earnings adjusted for special items" should not be considered a substitute for earnings as reported in accordance with GAAP. We believe certain investors use "earnings adjusted for special items" to evaluate MPC's financial performance between periods. Management also uses "earnings adjusted for special items" to compare MPC's performance to certain competitors. Forward-looking Statements This press release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of federal securities laws.
