Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Project
*IMPORTANT UPDATE*: The staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission will hold an additional public scoping meeting for the Northeast Energy Direct Pipeline Project on Tuesday, September 29th at 6:00 pm at the following location:
Franklin Pierce University Field House
Rindge, NH 03461
The scoping comment period has been extended until October 16, 2015.
The Massachusetts Energy Facilities Siting Board Public Comment hearing was held on August 6, 2015, and the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission Public Scoping Meeting was held on August 12, 2015, both at Lunenburg High School.
On December 8, 2014 Kinder Morgan altered the Tennessee Gas Pipeline Northeast Energy Direct (NED) Project filing with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to change the preferred route of the natural gas pipeline. The alternative path would follow existing rights-of-way along the utility lines in Southern New Hampshire. There is still a lateral pipeline planned to pass through Townsend that would impact 65 landholders.
