U.S. midstream oil and natural gas company MPLX LP said Aug. 2 it had increased total pipeline throughputs by 6% in the second quarter of 2022 and terminal throughput by 4%, compared with year-ago levels.

MPLX said in an earnings statement that total pipeline throughputs were 5.9 million bbl/d, with terminal throughput of 3.1 million bbl/d for the second quarter.

The increases were driven largely by increased utilization at refineries operated by its parent company Marathon Petroleum Co., MPLX CFO John Quaid said during the company’s earnings call.
