SULAIMANIYA/ERBIL - The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) has started work to expand its gas pipeline network — an initiative that promises to increase domestic power supply, unlock more gas production, and take a step toward potential, future gas exports.

Construction has begun on a 36-inch pipeline running from Erbil to a power plant in Dohuk near the Turkish border, according to several industry and government officials. Their accounts were corroborated by photographs of the new pipeline construction seen by Iraq Oil Report.

"Groundwork has already started," said one industry official.
