For a complete list of Docket Prefixes see the FERC Docket Prefix Information page.

"PF" represents "Pre-Filing", "P" represents "Hydropower". "06" represents the year 2006. "-13", "-11", "-12674", and "-12704" represent the sequencial number assigned to the individual project. Since Quoddy Bay submitted their LNG Prefiling request to FERC first, they were assigned "11". The Tidewalker hydropower project for Cutler was submitted earlier than the Half Moon Cove project. Although you may have seen a longer number, for example, "PF06-11-000", the last hyphen and three zeros are the "Sub-Docket number". So far (as of 2007 January 5), there are no sub dockets, so we have not addressed using the sub-docket number.

Step-by-step Search Procedure

Step 1 — Enter the appropriate Docket Number in the first field (example: PF06-11). Omit the Sub Docket Number.

Step 2 — Leave the Sub Docket "All" button and "List" field blank.

Step 3 — In the Filing Date Range left field, be sure that it contains the earliest date for which you want to search (it will probably be automatically completed with the date "01/01/1960", which is fine).

Step 4 — In the Filing Date Range right field, be sure to enter today's date. (Today's date will probably be automatically completed.)

Step 5 — Leave the "Legacy Data' checkbox blank.

Step 6 — Click the "Submit" button. You'll be presented with a list containing all the submissions to that docket.

Reading a Docket Comment Filing


In the list of all the Comments filed to that docket from Step 6, above, search through the list for filings of interest. You may want to look in the "Filed By" and "Description" fields of each filing.

When you've found a filing of interest, then in the Information field, click on that record's File List link.

A new window will open, containing the list of files submitted for that comment. At this point, you may have a choice of file types to download.

The FERC eLibrary automatically converts some files into PDFs (requiring the free Adobe Reader software), and will be labeled, "FERC Generated PDF". Frequently all files submitted for that comment will be consolidated into a single PDF. (CAVEAT: FERC has difficulty converting some file types into PDFs. In those cases, the consolidated FERC PDF will contain a page indicating that a PDF wasn't generated for that file. Downloading such missing files requires going back to the eLibrary and downloading the missing files separately in the format originally uploaded by the person submitting the comment.)

At other times, some files will be image files, such as TIFF or JPG (JPEG) files, that can be opened by most image editing software.

Steps for Downloading:

Step 1 — Check the boxes of the files to be downloaded. (You may want to download all the files separately in their original format, as submitted by the person who made the submission, or you may want to download the FERC-generated PDF. In some cases, there will be no alternatives other than a single method for downloading the files.)

Step 2 — Click the "Download" button.

Step 3 — You'll probably be presented with a dialogue box asking you to confirm the download. Click Yes. The download will proceed.

Step 4 — The downloaded file(s) will now reside on your computer's hard drive. The location for those files is set by preferences that you can adjust in your Web browser's Preferences.

Step 5 — Find the file(s) on your computer's hard drive and read the files.
