The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) announced that on April 15, 2021, the XBRL taxonomies, validation rules, and rendering files needed for the FERC XBRL rollout will be updated to Release 1.5, and will be available in the Yeti viewer. FERC’s current Visual FoxPro-based system will no longer be available for filings submitted after September 30, 2021.

To provide additional time that may be needed to transition to the XBRL-based system, FERC also announced that they are extending the deadlines for third quarter 2021 quarterly filings for electric utilities, natural gas and oil pipeline companies. Deadline extensions are noted below:

  • 3-Q (electric) for Major Electric Utilities and Others is changed from November 29, 2021 to December 31, 2021
  • 3-Q (electric) for Non-major Public Utilities and Licensees is changed from December 9, 2021 to December 31, 2021
  • 3-Q (natural gas) for Major Natural Gas Companies is changed from November 29, 2021 to December 31, 2021
  • 3-Q (natural gas) for Non-major Natural Gas Companies is changed from December 9, 2021 to December 31, 2021
  • 6-Q (oil) for Oil Pipeline Companies is changed from December 9, 2021 to December 31, 2021
