Primary Responsibility: The Supply, Distribution, & Planning (SD&P) organization is responsible for supply optimization planning and scheduling the movements of crude oil, feedstocks, biofuels and light products (gasoline, diesel, heating oil, jet fuel) between various components of Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) including refining, marketing, pipeline, rail, marine, and terminals. SD&P must efficiently supply these products from MPC refineries and other sources to the ultimate sales point (terminals or major trading hubs) to ensure a continuous supply of products to our customers. To aid them in their work duties, schedulers and infrastructure development analysts will learn to use state of the art software tools considered to be 'Best In Class' for the oil industry as well as third-party logistics systems.


Scheduler: Schedules the delivery of crude oil, feedstocks, biofuels and light products products by pipeline or waterborne transportation to third party and company locations to meet customer’s demand (sales forecast). The scheduler will coordinate pipeline, barge and/or tanker movements for appropriate timing, batch size and sequence of product shipments in order to optimize the supply of the available products from refineries and terminals, while also minimizing transportation costs and ensuring quality. They will monitor inventories at terminals and refineries on a daily basis and adjust shipping schedules to avoid shortages and the use of excess working capital. Schedulers will develop improved scheduling methods to efficiently utilize company resources, optimize inventory levels, and minimize transportation costs as well as coordinate the communications between terminals, Marketing, Exchange and Product Quality regarding any inventory or operational issue.


Infrastructure Development Analyst:  Utilizes state of the art software and modeling tools to determine transportation cost savings associated with proposed infrastructure projects and business opportunities. Interns work closely with analysts and schedulers within SD&P and collaborate across departments to ensure optimal supply solutions are reached and transportation costs are minimized. They manage large databases of historical inventory data as well as perform inventory turn analyses and calculate demand growth potential for terminals. Interns will be responsible for multiple strategic projects that create value and reduce operating costs for Marathon, providing the opportunity for exposure to various parts of our business.
