Marathon corporate report

Report summary

Few companies have undergone as decisive a portfolio transformation as Marathon in recent years. Successful deal-making has allowed the company to exit high-cost international resource themes, while adding more and more weight to a competitive domestic tight oil portfolio. The sale of non-core assets has helped protect the balance sheet through the downturn. Marathon is now well-placed to both ride out a period of continuing lower oil prices, and step on the development accelerator in a rising price environment.
