Marathon is a worldwide oil and natural gas corporation and to date they have continued to be one of largest oil refineries in the United States. Marathon continues to operate other businesses that market and transports its own and third party natural gas, crude oil and products. Pipelines are generally the most economical way to transport oil and natural gases. (Polom,F. Wordpress Blog 2010). However, processing of refined oil takes time as it goes through their production processes. Production management is a prime suggestion to reduce time in processing of oil. Marathon oil can reduce the time involved in the production process by continuing upgrade of their refineries to create efficiency and also include modifying its production processes as well. More scheduling of production processes could also reduce time. This would lead into more time being given into research, the development of new products, and equipment.
