DUHOK, Iraq/ANKARA, Aug 19 (Reuters) The capacity of Iraqi Kurdistan's independent oil pipeline will almost double to at least 200,000 barrels per day once upgrade work is finished, enabling the semi-autonomous region to boost exports significantly, industry sources and officials said.

Oil revenues are a lifeline for the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) in northern Iraq, whose peshmerga forces are being supported by U.S. air strikes in their battle against the radical Sunni militants of the Islamic State.
