Iraq: Kurdish Oil Pipeline Capacity To Double

From Stratfor

The Kurdistan Regional Government is planning to increase the capacity of its oil pipeline from 280,000 to 700,000 barrels per day following upgrades, industry sources and officials said Oct. 27, Reuters reported. The oil will be pumped to the Turkish port of Ceyhan, likely raising tensions with Baghdad, which alleges the shipments are illegal. Reportedly, the flow will increase to 400,000 bpd by the end of the year. The Kurdistan Regional Government has consistently worked to expand its oil pumping capacity despite opposition from the Baghdad government.
