Spacer Bar

Before making a request under the FOIA, make sure the information you seek is not already public.  If the information you are seeking is not already publicly available, submit your request to FOIA Officer, 900 Commerce Road East, New Orleans, LA 70123.  The following recommended steps helps to expedite the processing of your request:  1-include FOIA REQUEST on envelope; 2-be as specific as possible in identifying the records you are seeking; 3-include a brief description as to why you need the records, since the DOE may use such information as classification for fee assessment.  


Requesters who have submitted FOIA requests to the Department of Energy, Strategic Petroleum Reserve Project Management Office in New Orleans on or after December 31, 2008, may obtain the date received by this office and the estimated completion date by clicking here. You will need to know your FOIA control number to identify your request on the listing.


If you would like additional information related to your request you should contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at this location. If your request has been transferred to a component of the Department to be processed, please contact the FOIA Requester Service Center at the location where your request has been transferred.
