(Reuters) – Marathon Petroleum Corp posted a 56 percent jump in the number of barrels of crude oil it processed per day during the fourth quarter and the U.S. refiner’s margins got a boost from cheap Canadian oil.

Marathon has been processing large amounts of Canadian crude at its refineries in the U.S. Midwest as transport bottlenecks have driven Canadian crude prices lower.

Refiners like Marathon process crude into diesel, gasoline and other products.

The company said refining and marketing margin per barrel of oil rose about 15 percent to $15.07 from a year earlier.

Marathon’s crude oil throughput came in at about 3 million barrels per day, up from 1.84 million bpd.
