The Commission is also considering amending the licenses for administrative purposes to reflect a proposed name change. According to an application for approval filed by TXU Generation Company LP, acting on behalf of itself and Texas Energy Future Holdings Limited Partnership (Texas Energy LP), the applicants are requesting consent to indirect transfer of control of TXU Generation Company LP’s operating licences for CPSES, in connection with the acquisition of TXU Corporation by Texas Energy LP.

In connection with the indirect change of control, and the plans of Texas Energy LP to clarify the distinctions between TXU Corporation’s state-regulated transmission and distribution business and its other businesses, TXU Generation Company LP will be converted to a limited liability company and renamed Luminant Generation Company LLC.

TXU Generation Company LP Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station, 
Units 1 and 2; Notice of Consideration of Approval of Application 
Regarding Proposed Indirect Transfer of Control of Facility Operating 
Licenses and Conforming License Amendments, and Opportunity for a

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) is 
considering the issuance of an order under 10 CFR 50.80 approving the 
indirect transfer of the Facility Operating Licenses numbered NPF-87 
and NPF-89, for the Comanche Peak Steam Electric Station, Units 1 and 2 
(CPSES) currently held by TXU Generation Company LP, as owner and 
licensed operator of CPSES. The Commission is also considering amending 
the licenses for administrative purposes to reflect a proposed name 
change.
    According to an application for approval filed by TXU Generation 
Company LP, acting on behalf of itself and Texas Energy Future Holdings 
Limited Partnership (Texas Energy LP), the applicants are requesting 
consent to indirect transfer of control of TXU Generation Company LP's 
operating licences for CPSES, in connection with the acquisition of TXU 
Corporation by Texas Energy LP. TXU Corporation is the indirect owner 
of TXU Generation Company LP.
    No physical changes to the CPSES facility or operational changes 
are being proposed in the application.
    In connection with the indirect change of control, and the plans of 
Texas Energy LP to clarify the distinctions between TXU Corporation's 
state-regulated transmission and distribution business and its other 
businesses, TXU Generation Company LP will be converted to a limited 
liability company and renamed Luminant Generation Company LLC. 
Therefore, TXU Generation Company LP has requested proposed conforming 
amendments to Facility Operating License Nos. NPF-87 and NPF-89 that 
would replace references to TXU Generation Company LP in the license 
with references to Luminant Generation Company LLC.
    Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, 
shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of
