About the Logistics & Storage Engineering Organization:
The Logistics & Storage organization is the link between the refining and marketing components of Marathon. L&S transports crude oil and refined products to and from the refineries and onto storage terminals for distribution to retail marketing facilities, via pipelines and marine transportation operations.

Logistics & Storage and Midstream is comprised of six primary components:

Logistics & Storage Support Services – L3S provides engineering design and project management services to Terminals, T&R, MPL, and Marine.

Terminals – Terminals play a prominent role in enhancing life’s possibilities by blending, distributing, and delivering quality products in a safe, reliable, and competitive manner.

Transport & Rail (T&R) -T&R provides transportation services in order to distribute crude oil and refined products to retail marketing facilities and other end users.

Marathon Pipe Line Company (MPL) – MPL operates pipeline systems that move crude oil from production fields, other pipeline companies, and offshore platforms to MPC refineries, other refineries, and other pipeline systems. MPL also operates pipeline systems that move refined products from refineries to product terminals.

Marine – Maintains and operates a large private inland petroleum products barge fleet, which is used to ship crude oil, intermediates, and refined products.
