Application filed for natural gas pipeline

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A subsidiary of energy company Kinder Morgan Inc. has filed an application with federal regulators to build a natural gas pipeline through southern New Hampshire and western Massachusetts.

The pipeline would run 70 miles through New Hampshire.

The company says it hopes to start construction in January of 2017 and put the pipeline into service in November 2018.
Three public information sessions on the project are planned for the first week of December.

The filing on Friday follows a study released earlier in the week commissioned by the Massachusetts attorney general that concluded the New England region does not need additional natural gas pipelines to maintain a reliable flow of energy for the next 15 years.

Kinder Morgan called that study “seriously flawed.”
