Damage at a Mississippi River barge dock is preventing Marathon Petroleum (MPC) from loading crude there, which could depress Canadian oil prices if repairs are lengthy. The dock's unloading arm was damaged when a barge it was filling with crude was struck by other vessels that became unmoored; one of the barges collided with a Kirby-owned (KEX) vessel, causing a spill into the river.
