According to an application for approval filed by Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. (ENOI) on behalf of itself and the owners, certain planned corporate restructuring transactions will involve the creation of new intermediary holding companies and/or changes in the intermediary holding companies within the ownership structure for the foregoing licensees. Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc. will continue to operate the facility and Entergy Nuclear Palisades, LLC will continue to own the facility. There will be no direct transfer of the license. However, the corporate restructuring transactions will result in an indirect transfer of control of the license. PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 No physical changes to the Palisades Nuclear Plant or operational changes are being proposed in the application. The Board of Directors of Entergy Corporation has proposed that the wholesale nuclear business segment be organized under a publicly owned holding company, referred to as ‘‘NewCo,’’ that will be the indirect parent company of Entergy Nuclear Palisades, LLC. ENOI will be owned by a parent company referred to as ENOI Holdings, LLC, which, in turn, will be owned 50 percent by Entergy Corporation and 50 percent by NewCo. Each of these 50 percent interests will be held by wholly owned subsidiaries of Entergy Corporation and NewCo. ENOI will also be converted from a corporation to a limited liability company and its name will be changed to ENOI LLC. Under Delaware law, ENOI LLC will assume all of the rights and responsibilities of ENOI and it will be the same company (legal entity) both before and after the conversion and name change. ENOI will separately submit a request for license amendments to make the administrative changes as a result of ENOI’s name change from ‘‘Entergy Nuclear Operations, Inc.’’ to ‘‘ENOI LLC.’’ Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license, unless the Commission shall give its consent in writing. The Commission will approve an application for the indirect transfer of a license, if the Commission determines that the proposed corporate restructuring will not affect the qualifications of the licensee to hold the license, and that the transfer is otherwise consistent with applicable provisions of law, regulations, and Orders issued by the Commission pursuant thereto. The filing of requests for hearing and petitions for leave to intervene, and written comments with regard to the license transfer application, are discussed below. Within 20 days from the date of publication of this notice, any person whose interest may be affected by the Commission’s action on the application may request a hearing and, if not the applicant, may petition for leave to intervene in a hearing proceeding on the Commission’s action. Requests for a hearing and petitions for leave to intervene should be filed in accordance with the Commission’s rules of practice set forth in Subpart C ‘‘Rules of General Applicability: Hearing Requests, Petitions to Intervene, Availability of E:\FR\FM\16JAN1.SGM 16JAN1
