Natural gas pipeline developer Kinder Morgan will hold the first in a series of public forums tonight on its proposed Northeast Energy Direct pipeline.

There's already a great deal of organized opposition to the project in New Hampshire, after the proposed route was shifted into the state late last year.

It encountered similar resistance in Massachusetts.

The pipeline would bring natural gas from the Marcellus Shale formation in Pennsylvania.

Developers say it would help alleviate winter price spikes in natural gas and electricity prices in New England.

The Texas-based company has scheduled a dozen open houses for this month in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut and New York.

Tonight's open house begins at 6 at Winchester Town Hall.
