1. How do I request an filing extension?

Extension requests must be received by FERC prior to the filing deadline to facilitate timely consideration. Extension requests must be in the form of a letter and include the current date, the name of the company requesting an extension, a contact name and telephone number, and the proposed date by which the company will file. The request must clearly state the reason for which the extension is necessary and must be received by FERC prior to the filing deadline. (Source: 18 CFR 385.2008(a), 18 CFR 385.212).
