Schedule

Release Date. The Short-Term Energy Outlook (STEO) scheduling procedure calls for the release of the STEO on the first Tuesday following the first Thursday of each month. For example, since the first Thursday of February 2019 was February 7, under this plan, the February edition was released on Tuesday, February 12. If a Federal holiday falls on the Monday before the normal release date the release is delayed until Wednesday. There may be the occasional unusual delay in the release because of scheduling around other events, such as the EIA Conference. Barring holidays or unusual rescheduling, the STEO will normally appear between the 6th and the 12th of the month. Any unforeseen scheduling adjustments will be posted here and/or on the STEO homepage.

Release Time. The STEO is normally released between 12:00 pm (noon) and 12:15 pm EDT (summer)/EST (winter). There may be occasional early release because of presentation of the forecast at Congressional hearings or conferences such as the Winter Fuels Conference. A planned early release of the STEO will be noted on the STEO home page.
