MARATHON OIL CORPORATION
 
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
1.      Basis of Presentation
 
These consolidated financial statements are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, these statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the results for the periods reported.  All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature unless disclosed otherwise.  These consolidated financial statements, including notes, have been prepared in accordance with the applicable rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and do not include all of the information and disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for complete financial statements.  Certain reclassifications have been made to conform to current year presentation.
 
 
These interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Marathon Oil Corporation (“Marathon”) 2009 Annual Report on Form 10-K.  The results of operations for the quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.
 

2.      Accounting Standards
 
Recently Adopted
 
 
Variable interest accounting standards were amended by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) in June 2009.  The new accounting standards replace the existing quantitative-based risks and rewards calculation for determining which enterprise has a controlling financial interest in a variable interest entity with an approach focused on identifying which enterprise has the power to direct the activities of a variable interest entity.  In addition, the concept of qualifying special-purpose entities has been eliminated.  Ongoing assessments of whether an enterprise is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity are also required.  The amended variable interest accounting standard requires reconsideration for determining whether an entity is a variable interest entity when changes in facts and circumstances occur such that the holders of the equity investment at risk, as a group, lack the power from voting rights or similar rights to direct the activities of the entity.  Enhanced disclosures are required for any enterprise that holds a variable interest in a variable interest entity. Prospective application of this standard in the first quarter of 2010 did not have significant impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows.  The required disclosures are presented in Note 3.
 
 
A standard to improve disclosures about fair value measurements was issued by the FASB in January 2010.  The additional disclosures required include: (1) the different classes of assets and liabilities measured at fair value, (2) the significant inputs and techniques used to measure Level 2 and Level 3 assets and liabilities for both recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements, (3) the gross presentation of purchases, sales, issuances and settlements for the rollforward of Level 3 activity, and (4) the transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2.  We adopted all aspects of this standard in the first quarter of 2010, including the gross presentation of the Level 3 activity rollforward, which could have been deferred until 2011.  This adoption did not have a significant impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows.  The required disclosures are presented in Note 11.
 
Oil and Gas Reserve Estimation and Disclosure standards were issued by the FASB in January 2010, which align the FASB’s reporting requirements with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) requirements.  Similar to the SEC requirements, the FASB requirements were effective for periods ending on or after December 31, 2009.  The SEC introduced a new definition of oil and gas producing activities which allows companies to include volumes in their reserve base from unconventional resources.  The FASB also addresses the impact of changes in the SEC’s rules and definitions on accounting for oil and gas producing activities.  Initial adoption did not have an impact on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or cash flows.  The effect on depreciation, depletion and amortization expense in the first quarter of 2010, as compared to prior periods, was not significant.


 
3.      Variable Interest Entities
 
The Athabasca Oil Sands Project (“AOSP”), in which we hold a 20 percent undivided interest, contracted with a wholly-owned subsidiary of a publicly traded Canadian limited partnership (“Corridor Pipeline”) to provide materials transportation capabilities among the Muskeg River mine, the Scotford upgrader and markets in Edmonton.  The contract, originally signed in 1999 by a company we acquired, allows each holder of an undivided interest in the AOSP to ship materials in accordance with its undivided interest.  Costs under this contract are accrued and recorded on a monthly basis, with a $1 million current liability recorded at June 30, 2010.  Under this agreement, the AOSP absorbs all of the operating and capital costs of the pipeline.  Currently, no third-party shippers use the pipeline.  Should shipments be suspended, by choice or due to force majeure, we are responsible for the portion of the payment related to our undivided interest for all remaining periods.  The contract expires in 2029; however, the shippers can extend its term perpetually.  This contract qualifies as a variable interest contractual arrangement and the Corridor Pipeline qualifies as a VIE.  We hold a variable interest but are not the primary beneficiary because our shipments are only 20 percent of


 
Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
 


the total; therefore, the Corridor Pipeline is not consolidated by Marathon.  Our maximum exposure to loss as a result of our involvement with this VIE is the amount we expect to pay over the contract term, which was $838 million as of June 30, 2010.  The liability on our books related to this contract at any given time will reflect amounts due for the immediately previous month’s activity, which is substantially less than the maximum exposure over the contract term.  We have not provided financial assistance to Corridor Pipeline and we do not have any guarantees of such assistance in the future.
 
 

4.      Income per Common Share
 
Basic income per share is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.  Diluted income per share includes exercise of stock options and stock appreciation rights, provided the effect is not antidilutive.

5.      Dispositions
 
Assets Held For Sale
 
 
In May 2010, we entered into a non-binding letter of intent to sell our RM&T segment's St. Paul Park, Minnesota,  refinery (including associated terminal, tankage and pipeline investments) and 166 Speedway SuperAmerica retail outlets, plus related inventories.  A final agreement is being negotiated and the sale is anticipated to close by year end 2010.  Based on the estimated fair value of the consideration at June 30, 2010, any gain to be recognized at closing is not expected to be significant.
 
 
As of June 30, 2010, the Minnesota assets and liabilities held for sale are reported in the consolidated balance sheet as follows:

2010 Disposition
 
 
During the first quarter 2010, we closed the sale of a 20 percent outside-operated interest in our E&P segment’s Production Sharing Contract and Joint Operating Agreement in Block 32 offshore Angola.  We received net proceeds of $1.3 billion and recorded a pretax gain on the sale in the amount of $811 million.  We retained a 10 percent outside-operated interest in Block 32.
 
 
2009 Dispositions
 
 
In April 2009, we closed the sale of our operated properties in Ireland for net proceeds of $84 million, after adjusting for cash held by the sold subsidiary.  A $158 million pretax gain on the sale was recorded.  As a result of this sale, we terminated our pension plan in Ireland, incurring a charge of $18 million.  Activities related to our operated properties in Ireland had been reported in our Exploration and Production (E&P) segment.
 
 
On June 24, 2009 we entered into an agreement to sell the subsidiary holding our 19 percent outside-operated interest in the Corrib natural gas development offshore Ireland.  An initial $100 million payment was made at closing.  Additional fixed proceeds of $135 million will be received on the earlier of first commercial gas or December 31, 2012.  Including contingent consideration, the fair value of $311 million at June 30, 2009, was less than book value.  An impairment of $154 million was recognized in the second quarter of 2009 and reported as part of the loss on disposal of discontinued operations.
 
 
Existing guarantees of our subsidiaries’ performance issued to Irish government entities remain in place after the sales until the purchasers issue similar guarantees to replace them.  The guarantees, related to asset retirement obligations and natural gas production levels, have been indemnified by the purchasers.  The fair value of these guarantees is not significant.
 
 
In December 2009, we closed the sale of our operated fields offshore Gabon, receiving net proceeds of $269 million, after closing adjustments.  A $232 million pretax gain on this disposition was reported in discontinued operations in the fourth quarter of 2009.
 
 
Our Irish businesses and our Gabonese businesses, which had been reported in our E&P segment, have been reported as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of income and the consolidated statements of cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2009.  Revenues, pretax income and the net pretax loss on these dispositions are shown on the table below.

In June 2009, we closed sales of a portion of our operated and all of our outside-operated Permian Basin producing assets in New Mexico and west Texas for net proceeds after closing adjustments of $293 million.  A $196 million pretax gain on the sale was recorded.
 


6.      Segment Information
 
We have four reportable operating segments.  Each of these segments is organized and managed based upon the nature of the products and services they offer.
 
 
 
1)
Exploration and Production (“E&P”) – explores for, produces and markets liquid hydrocarbons and natural gas on a worldwide basis;
 
 
 
2)
Oil Sands Mining (“OSM”) – mines, extracts and transports bitumen from oil sands deposits in Alberta, Canada, and upgrades the bitumen to produce and market synthetic crude oil and vacuum gas oil;
 
 
 
3)
Integrated Gas (“IG”) – markets and transports products manufactured from natural gas, such as liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) and methanol, on a worldwide basis; and
 
 
 
4)
Refining, Marketing and Transportation (“RM&T”) – refines, markets and transports crude oil and petroleum products, primarily in the Midwest, upper Great Plains, Gulf Coast and southeastern regions of the United States.
 
As discussed in Note 5, our Irish and Gabonese businesses were sold in 2009 and have been reported as discontinued operations.  Segment information for all presented periods of 2009 excludes amounts for these operations.

8.      Income Taxes
 
The following is an analysis of the effective income tax rates for the periods presented:
 
   
Six Months Ended June 30,
 
   
2010
   
2009
 
Statutory U.S. income tax rate
    35 %     35 %
Effects of foreign operations, including foreign tax credits
    16       26  
State and local income taxes, net of federal income tax effects
    -       1  
Legislation change
    2       -  
Other
    (1 )     -  
        Effective income tax rate for continuing operations
    52 %     62 %

 
The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“PPACA”) and the Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act of 2010 (“HCERA”), (together, the “Acts”) were signed in to law in March 2010.  The “Acts” effectively change the tax treatment of federal subsidies paid to sponsors of retiree health benefit plans that provide prescription drug benefits that are at least actuarially equivalent to the corresponding benefits provided under Medicare Part D.  The federal subsidy paid to employers was introduced as part of the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (the “MPDIMA”).  Under the MPDIMA, the federal subsidy does not reduce our income tax deduction for the costs of providing such prescription drug plans nor is it subject to income tax individually.  Beginning in 2013, under the Acts, our income tax deduction for the costs of providing Medicare Part D-equivalent prescription drug benefits to retirees will be reduced by the amount of the federal subsidy.  Such a change in the tax law must be recognized in earnings in the period enacted regardless of the effective date.  As a result, we have recorded a charge of $45 million in the first quarter of 2010 for the write-off of deferred tax assets to reflect the change in the tax treatment of the federal subsidy.
 
 
The effective income tax rate is influenced by a variety of factors including the geographic and functional sources of income, the relative magnitude of these sources of income, and foreign currency remeasurement effects.  The provision for income taxes is allocated on a discrete, stand-alone basis to pretax segment income and to individual items not allocated to segments.  The difference between the total provision and the sum of the amounts allocated to segments and to individual items not allocated to segments is reported in the Corporate and other unallocated items line of the reconciliation shown in Note 6.
