Why does FacesContext .getCurrentInstance() return null?

I have a servlet (several actually) in a JSF application that I need to gain access to the FacesContext in.

I noticed that often when I call FacesContext .getCurrentInstance() it will return null.

Now, it is my understanding that as long as a JSF page within my application had been called previously, then the FacesContext should have been set up. Is this not the case?

Any clues as to why the context is null?

This is driving my nuts!
