Marathon Gets 1 Million Barrels From U.S. Oil Reserve

(Corrects name of company in first paragraph.)

Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) will borrow 1 million barrels of sweet crude oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve to resolve short-term supply impacts from Hurricane Isaac, the Energy Department said.

The loan, which is distinct from a release from the strategic inventories, will be provided in response to a request from Marathon under short-term contractual agreements, the agency said today in a statement.
