Extracts and Reports Update:
The Day-Ahead and Real-Time Settlements Consolidated Operating Day Extracts (CODE) and Market Operating Day Extracts (MODE) that were expected to post on December 3, 2012, have not been posted due to the latency in statement and invoice posting. The ERCOT Market Information List (EMIL) states that these extracts will be posted no more than forty-eight (48) hours after the Settlement Invoices have been posted. ERCOT is working to ensure this deadline is met and will provide notice if this deadline cannot be met. ERCOT is compiling a list of out of compliant extract postings with their originally expected and actual posting dates.
