unfortunatly, no email - I can't ring them right now - but here is some choice waffle from their website:

Living Our Values

Marathon is a company that strives to bring value and values together. We create value for our shareholders and provide quality products and services for our customers. In doing so, we act responsibly toward those who work for us, the communities in which we operate and our business partners.

These are the core values that guide Marathon’s approach to business:

* Health and Safety: We conduct our business with high regard for the health and safety of our employees, contractors and neighboring communities.
* Environmental Stewardship: We are committed to minimizing environmental impacts by reducing wastes, emissions and other releases.
* Honesty and Integrity: We uphold high standards of business ethics and integrity, enforce strict principles of corporate governance and support transparency in all of our operations.
* Corporate Citizenship: We live by our principles of corporate social responsibility and make a difference through our philanthropic, social development and volunteer programs.
* High Performance: We create sustainable value through a high performance team culture and provide a collaborative, supportive work environment where employees are encouraged to reach their full professional potential.

Our CSR Policy

Marathon's commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) means being accountable for our actions to a broad range of stakeholders -- investors, employees, customers, suppliers, communities, business partners, host governments and others who have a stake in how our company conducts itself. Marathon has long-established core values associated with health and safety, environmental stewardship, honesty and integrity, corporate citizenship, and a high performance team. We recognize the importance of both financial and non-financial performance in our efforts to maintain long-term, sustainable performance for the Company. We put our policies into practice everyday as we manage our business to promote sustainable social, environmental and economic benefits to all stakeholders wherever Marathon operates.

They aren't doing this in the case of Corrib gasfields!!!!

there are also some clangers on the health and safety page:

# Prevention of Pollution and Resource Conservation: We are committed to environmental protection and emphasize, to the extent practical, resource conservation and the minimization of wastes, emissions and releases throughout our operations.

# Communities: We are dedicated to being a good neighbor in the communities where we work. We will conduct our operations safely and responsibly and we will consult proactively with stakeholders on issues of mutual interest.

# Risk Assessment: Management of risk is fundamental to safe operations, products and services. We will systematically identify potential hazards, assess their relative significance and develop reduction measures to ensure risks are properly addressed.

# Legislative and Regulatory Compliance: We will comply with all applicable HES laws, regulations and other requirements to which the organization subscribes. Within our sphere of influence, we will actively participate in the development of responsible laws, regulations and standards regarding HES issues.

Contractor Performance: Recognizing that our contractors are pivotal to achieving our HES goals, we will monitor their performance, use the results in the selection process, and work with our contractors to align our common interests and promote HES excellence.

They have a business integrity Office:

Business Integrity Office

Marathon’s Business Integrity Office directs the Company’s emphasis on ethical standards. This Office maintains the Code of Business Conduct; administers the Integrity Helpline; develops and implements ethics education programs; coordinates with the Law, Audit and Human Resources organizations to ensure program compliance; and communicates with employees and others about ethical business conduct.

Reporting to Marathon's Chief Compliance Officers, the Business Integrity Office is also accountable to the Business Integrity Advisory Committee. The committee is comprised of representatives from Law, Auditing, Human Resources and Operations, as well as the Chief Compliance Officers and an external member who is an ethics subject matter expert.

Working with the Business Integrity Office are Business Integrity Partners. These designated employees act as a liaison between the Business Integrity Office and their organizations and/or locations to help with communication and training initiatives.

Business Integrity Office
539 South Main Street
Findlay, OH 45840-3295
Phone: +1 877.713.8314 (toll free)
Fax: +1 419.421.2410
Email: integrity@marathonoil.com

so there is an email to contact, but this department may be window dressing, and not have much clout within the organisation. it's worth a try though, as many people as possible emailing them.
