MPC manages one of the largest petroleum pipeline networks in the U.S., based on total volume delivered. The company operates pipeline systems that move crude oil from production fields and other pipeline connections to MPC refineries and other delivery points in the industry. The company also operates pipeline systems that move refined products from refineries to product terminals.
MPC owns, leases or has ownership interests in approximately 8,300 miles of pipeline, which includes approximately 2,900 miles owned or leased through MPLX LP.
MPC delivered approximately 2.2 million barrels of crude oil and petroleum products daily through its common carrier pipelines in 2013, of which approximately 2 mmbpd were delivered through MPLX LP pipelines. High-speed computers, constantly evolving technology and satellite communications enable the company to monitor and control its many pipeline systems throughout the U.S. from a single control center in Northwest Ohio.
Marathon Petroleum also has partial ownership interests in several pipeline companies that have approximately 835 miles of crude oil pipelines and 3,600 miles of refined products pipelines, including about 1,600 miles operated by MPC.
