Company description

Marathon Oil Corp. was originally organized in 2001, as USX HoldCo, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the former USX Corp. It refines, markets and transports crude oil and petroleum products. Marathon's operations consist of four reportable operating segments: exploration and production; oil sands mining; refining, marketing and transportation; and integrated gas. Exploration, development and production activities are conducted in 10 countries: the United States, Angola, Canada, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Indonesia, Ireland, Libya, Norway and the United Kingdom. As of December, 2008, the company owned and operated seven refineries in the Gulf Coast, Midwest and upper Great Plains. Refined products are supplied to resellers and consumers within 23 states. Historically, after a reorganization in July, 2001, USX HoldCo, Inc. became the parent entity and the former USX Corp. was merged into a subsidiary of USX HoldCo Inc.; USX HoldCo, Inc. then changed its name to USX Corp., then Marathon Oil Corp. As a result of the USX separation, Marathon and United States Steel became separate companies. In 2005, the company acquired 38-percent ownership interest in Marathon Ashland Petroleum LLC (MAP), a portion of Ashland's Valvoline Instant Oil Change business, and other interests, effectively making MAP wholly owned by Marathon. In 2007, it acquired Western Oil Sands Inc. The company's retail outlets operate under the Speedway and SuperAmerica brands.
