The business, which make up almost 60% of Marathon's totalvolumes by inland marine vessels, include 18 tow boats and 205 barges thatcarry light products, heavy oils, crude oil, renewable fuels, chemicals andfeedstocks in the Midwest and Gulf Coast regions.

"The high-quality inland marine assets arestrategically located in key markets," said Gary Heminger, chairman andCEO of MPLX.
