UPDATE 1-Marathon Kentucky refinery at reduced rates

(Adds details on lock closure)

NEW YORK, Jan 29 (BestGrowthStock) – Marathon Oil Corp (MRO.N: ) said Friday its
226,000 barrel-per-day Catlettsburg, Kentucky, refinery was forced to
reduce rates due to the closure of a lock on the Ohio River.

The main lock on the Ohio River at Greenup, Kentucky, was closed on
Wednesday due to damage to it. The repairs to the main chamber of the lock
are expected to take 6 to 8 weeks, but an auxiliary chamber is expected to
be opened on Sunday to allow vessels to pass.
