"Marathon Oil's first quarter performance was highlighted by continued growth in production available for sale, up 4 percent over the prior quarter and 19 percent over the first quarter of 2012, excluding Libya and Alaska, largely driven by our U.S. resource plays," said Clarence P. Cazalot, Jr., Marathon Oil's chairman, president and CEO. "Net sales volumes, excluding Libya, grew 3 percent over the previous quarter to 485,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boed). These higher sales volumes, along with improved cash production costs per barrel of oil equivalent and higher crude oil and condensate realizations in North America, led to a 40 percent increase in cash flow from operations before changes in working capital for the quarter.
