On August 28, FERC extended deadlines for some forms through and including September 30th for entities and investment professionals affected by Hurricane Laura in the Gulf Coast region of the United States. In recognition of these emergency conditions, and following sections 385.101(e) and 385.2008 of FERC’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, 18 C.F.R. §§ 385.101(e) and 385.2008 (2019), FERC has determined that there is good cause to grant this extension of time.
For those who need such extensions due to the emergency conditions caused by the storm, the following non-statutory deadlines that occur on or before September 30th, 2020 have been extended:
the deadline for filing FERC Forms 3-Q and 6-Q
the deadline for entities to do the following non-statutory filings required by FERC: compliance filings, responses to deficiency letters, and answers to complaints and orders to show cause
the deadline for regulated entities to complete filings required by their FERC tariffs or rate schedule
Those seeking extensions for other non-statutory deadlines may file motions requesting such extensions. FERC will act on these requests promptly.
