Heminger noted that in 2012, MPC returned $1.35 billion to shareholders
through two accelerated share repurchase programs and another $407 million
through dividends. MPC's stock at year-end 2012 reflected an 89 percent
increase in value relative to year-end 2011. With dividends, total shareholder
return for 2012 was 93 percent.

Significant Accomplishments

Heminger said that MPC's excellent financial results in 2012 were matched by
its safety performance. "At MPC, we regard health and safety as core values,"
he said. "When our operations are safe and our people healthy, we know our
results will be that much better. That certainly has held true as MPC
employees and contractors helped us achieve our best-ever safety performance
in 2012, an accomplishment of which we are all very proud."

Heminger highlighted the initial public offering (IPO) of midstream master
limited partnership MPLX LP (MPLX) as an important milestone for MPC in 2012.
MPLX common units began trading on the New York Stock Exchange on Oct. 26.
"With its ownership of a majority interest in some of MPC's core midstream
assets, MPLX represents an attractive investment for unitholders and MPC
shareholders alike," he said. "With multiple avenues for expansion, MPLX will
be our primary vehicle to grow our midstream business and to participate in
the infrastructure investments needed to address the changing North American
energy landscape. MPC's ownership interest in MPLX will allow MPC shareholders
to participate in the value created by growing the fee-based, stable cash-flow
business of MPLX."

As 2012 came to a close, MPC's Detroit Heavy Oil Upgrade Project (DHOUP) was
complete and fully operational. "DHOUP represents a landmark achievement for
MPC," Heminger said. "This $2.2 billion investment increases our capacity to
process heavy crude oils, which are expected to be price-advantaged well into
the future, and enhances our flexibility to process a wide slate of crude
oils."

Heminger also remarked on DHOUP's execution as notable. "We completed this
project not only on budget and on schedule, but with world-class safety
performance, including no lost-time injuries since we started construction in
mid-2008," he said. "I am proud of the project team and all our employees and
contractors whose sustained effort over the years resulted in such a
successful outcome."

In October, MPC announced that it had signed a definitive agreement with BP to
acquire its 451,000 barrel-per-calendar-day refinery near Galveston Bay in
Texas City, Texas, and related midstream assets and branded jobber contracts
for approximately $598 million, plus inventories estimated at $1.1 billion.
The agreement also contains an earnout provision under which MPC could pay up
to an additional $700 million over six years, subject to financial performance
and other conditions. The transaction will be funded with cash on hand, and is
expected to be accretive to earnings in the first year of operation. "The
Galveston Bay asset acquisition will be an excellent complement to our
existing business," Heminger said. "It will augment our ability to process a
wide variety of crude oils, provide us additional access to refined product
markets and give us a significant refining presence in the western Gulf of
Mexico region, which will provide additional balance to our system. It also
will increase our brand presence in the Southeast and significantly increase
our participation in the chemicals value chain." The refinery is one of the
largest and most complex in the U.S., with a Nelson Complexity Index of 15.3.
This will make it the most complex in MPC's refining system.

Acquisition of the refinery and related assets is planned for completion Feb.
1.

MPC's Speedway retail segment increased its store-count by about 7 percent in
2012 after acquiring 97 convenience stores in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. The
acquisitions included 87 GasAmerica stores and 10 Road Ranger stores, bringing
its total count to approximately 1,460 stores. "We continue to invest in this
channel of distribution, which provides assured sales of gasoline manufactured
at our refineries, and has generated stable cash flow from food and
merchandise sales," said Heminger. "In addition to strengthening its presence
in key marketing areas, Speedway also achieved record segment income and
EBITDA per store. At the same time, Speedway grew its merchandise same-store
sales for the 15^th consecutive year and achieved its best-ever safety
record."

2013 Capital Plan

MPC's capital investment plan for 2013 totals $1.6 billion, excluding the
acquisition purchase price of the Galveston Bay refinery and related assets.
The capital allocated to the Refining & Marketing segment is $1.02 billion for
maintenance and value-accretive projects intended to capture additional value
from changes in the market for crude oil, other feedstocks and refined
products. The capital for these projects includes approximately $400 million
for maintenance and synergy capital for the Galveston Bay refinery and related
assets.

Capital allocated to the Speedway segment is $255 million, primarily for new
stores, rebuilds, remodels and site acquisitions. Capital allocated to the
Pipeline Transportation segment is $184 million, including MPLX. Capital
allocated to corporate support activities is $160 million, primarily for
upgrades to information technology systems.

Segment Results

Total income from operations was $1.19 billion in the fourth quarter of 2012
and $5.35 billion for full-year 2012, compared with a loss of $158 million and
income of $3.75 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011 and full-year 2011,
respectively.

Refining & Marketing

Refining & Marketing segment income from operations was $1.14 billion in the
fourth quarter of 2012 and $5.10 billion for full-year 2012, compared with a
loss of $182 million and income of $3.59 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011
and full-year 2011, respectively.

The $1.32 billion and $1.51 billion increases in Refining & Marketing segment
income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 and full-year 2012
compared to the same periods in 2011 were primarily the result of a higher
refining and marketing gross margin. The refining and marketing gross margin
averaged $9.17 per barrel and $10.45 per barrel for the fourth quarter of 2012
and full-year 2012, respectively, compared with $0.39 per barrel and $7.75 per
barrel for the fourth quarter of 2011 and full-year 2011, respectively. The
main factors contributing to the increase in the gross margin were higher
crack spreads and favorable crude oil acquisition costs. The favorable crude
oil acquisition costs resulted primarily from a widening of the sweet/sour
differential in the fourth quarter of 2012 and full-year 2012 compared to the
same periods in 2011.

Speedway

Speedway segment income from operations was $77 million in the fourth quarter
of 2012 and $310 million for full-year 2012, compared with $73 million in the
fourth quarter of 2011 and $271 million for full-year 2011. The increases were
primarily the result of a higher merchandise gross margin and a higher
gasoline and distillates gross margin, partially offset by higher expenses
associated with an increase in the number of stores.

Pipeline Transportation

Pipeline Transportation segment income from operations, including 100 percent
of MPLX's operations, was $72 million in the fourth quarter of 2012 and $216
million for full-year 2012, $34 million higher than in the fourth quarter of
2011 and $17 million higher than in full-year 2011, respectively. The increase
in the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 was
primarily due to an increase in transportation tariffs and pipeline affiliate
income, partially offset by higher mechanical integrity expenses. The increase
in full-year 2012 segment income from operations compared to 2011 primarily
resulted from an increase in transportation tariffs, partially offset by
higher mechanical integrity expenses and lower pipeline affiliate income.

Corporate and Special Items

Corporate and other unallocated expenses of $91 million in the fourth quarter
of 2012 and $336 million for full-year 2012 were $4 million higher than in the
fourth quarter of 2011 and $20 million higher than in the full-year 2011,
respectively. The increase for the fourth quarter of 2012 compared to the
fourth quarter of 2011 was primarily due to an increase in employee incentive
compensation and nonrecurring project-related expenses, partially offset by a
decrease in pension expenses associated with a pension plan amendment
announced in the second quarter of 2012. The increase for full-year 2012
compared to full-year 2011 was primarily due to higher costs associated with
being a stand-alone company for a full year in 2012, compared to half of the
year in 2011, partially offset by a decrease in pension expenses associated
with the pension plan amendment.

During the fourth quarter of 2012 and full-year 2012, MPC recorded pretax
pension settlement expenses of $8 million and $124 million, respectively,
resulting from the level of employee lump-sum retirement distributions
occurring during the year. In addition, MPC recognized a pretax gain of $183
million in 2012 related to the sale of the company's Minnesota assets in 2010.

Strong Financial Position and Liquidity

On Dec. 31, 2012, the company had $4.9 billion in cash and cash equivalents,
an unused $2 billion revolving credit agreement and a $1 billion unused trade
receivables securitization facility. The borrowing capacity on the revolving
credit agreement will increase to $2.5 billion upon the acquisition of the
Galveston Bay refinery and related assets to support additional core liquidity
needs of the company. MPC intends to fund the Galveston Bay acquisition with
cash on hand. The company's credit facilities and cash position should provide
it with sufficient flexibility to meet its day-to-day operational needs, and
its strong performance should enable it to continue its balanced and
disciplined approach to investing in the business and returning capital to
shareholders. As of Dec. 31, 2012, the company's strong financial position was
reflected by its debt-to-total capital ratio of 22 percent.

Incremental Share Repurchase Authorization

MPC's board of directors today approved an additional $2 billion share
repurchase authorization. The board also extended the remaining $650 million
share repurchase authorization announced on Feb. 1, 2012, for a total
outstanding authorization of $2.65 billion through December 2014.

Conference Call

At 10 a.m. EST today, MPC will hold a webcast and conference call to discuss
reported results and provide an update on company operations. Interested
parties may listen to the conference call on MPC's website at

References to Earnings
References to earnings or loss mean net income (loss) attributable to Marathon
Petroleum Corporation (MPC) from the statements of income. 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 interest.



Non-GAAP Financial Information
In addition to earnings (loss) determined in accordance with GAAP, MPC has
provided supplemental "earnings (loss) 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 (loss) and
"earnings (loss) adjusted for special items" is provided in a table on page 1
of this release. "Earnings (loss) adjusted for special items" should not be
considered a substitute for earnings (loss) as reported in accordance with
GAAP. We believe certain investors use "earnings (loss) adjusted for special
items" to evaluate MPC's financial performance between periods. Management
also uses "earnings (loss) adjusted for special items" to compare MPC's
performance to certain competitors.

logistics; the reliability of processing units and other equipment; our
ability to successfully implement growth opportunities; impacts from our
repurchases of shares of MPC common stock under our stock repurchase
authorization, including the timing and amounts of any common stock
repurchases; our ability to successfully complete the acquisition of BP's
Texas City, Texas, refinery and related logistics and marketing assets; state

(a)  Segment EBITDA represents segment earnings before interest and financing
costs, interest income, income taxes and depreciation and amortization
expense. Segment EBITDA is used by some investors and analysts to analyze and
compare companies on the basis of operating performance. Segment EBITDA should
not be considered as an alternative to net income (loss) attributable to MPC,
income (loss) before income taxes, cash flows from operating activities or any
other measure of financial performance presented in accordance with accounting
principles generally accepted in the United States. Segment EBITDA may not be
comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities.
