Kurdistan oil pipeline export capacity to double

A article by Humeyra Pamuk and Orhan Coskun from August 19, 2014 claims that "the capacity of Iraqi Kurdistan's independent oil pipeline will almost double to at least 200,000 barrels per day by the end of this month," citing industry sources and officials.

The pipeline runs to Turkey's Mediterranean export terminal at Ceyhan. According to the article, the Kurds have "managed to load seven export cargoes from Ceyhan," citing Turkish Energy Minister Taner Yildiz.

The KRG has said it plans to "increase oil sales to around 1 million bpd by the end of 2015, which could give it enough economic clout to speed a move to independence" claims the article.


Jeremiah's prophecy sees the Medes -- today's Kurds -- as becoming a "great nation" to the north of the "land of Babylon" -- modern-day Iraq. Will this burgeoning oil export capacity help the Kurds achieve this "great nation" status seen by Jeremiah?
