SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NRC has granted the request of Entergy Operations, Inc. (the licensee), to withdraw its April 4, 2012, application (ADAMS Accession No. ML12096A022), proposing an amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–6 for ANO, Unit 2, located in Russellville, Arkansas. The proposed amendment incorporates the ANO, Unit 2, revised FHA based on the use of the Alternate Source Term (AST) methodology. This methodology was previously approved for use at ANO, Unit 2, as documented in an NRC safety evaluation dated April 26, 2011 (ADAMS Accession No. ML110980197). The original FHA analysis assumed failure of 60 fuel rods in a single fuel assembly. The revised analysis assumes the failure of all fuel rods in two fuel assemblies (472 rods). The changes necessary to support the revised FHA affect similar Technical Specifications (TSs) associated with the following NRC-approved TSTF Travelers: TSTF–51, Revision 2, ‘‘Revise Containment Requirements During Handling Irradiated Fuel and Core Alterations’’; TSTF–272, Revision 1, ‘‘Refueling Boron Concentration Clarification’’; TSTF–268, Revision 2, ‘‘Operations Involving Positive Reactivity Additions’’; and TSTF–471, Revision 1, ‘‘Eliminate use of Term Core Alterations in Actions and Notes.’’ Therefore, the licensee proposed to adopt these TSTFs in conjunction with changes that reflect the revised FHA. Additionally, administrative and/or editorial errors noted on the affected TS pages were also proposed for correction. The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:18 May 07, 2014 Jkt 232001 the Federal Register on July 10, 2012 (77 FR 40652).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The text of the Order is attached. Daniel Wilson (Mr. Wilson) was formally employed as the Chemistry Manager at the Entergy Nuclear Operations (ENO) Indian Point Energy Center (Licensee). ENO holds License Nos. DPR–26 and DPR–64 issued by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to Part 50 of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) on September 28, 1973 and December 12, 1975, respectively. The licenses authorize the operation of Indian Point Nuclear Generating Units 2 and 3 in accordance with the conditions specified therein. The facility is located on the Licensee’s site in Buchanan, New York. II Between March 30, 2012, and March 26, 2013, an investigation was conducted at IP to determine if Mr. Wilson, while employed as the IP Chemistry Manager, deliberately entered false data into a Chemistry database pertaining to an emergency diesel generator (EDG) fuel oil storage tank (FOST) and the reserve fuel oil storage tank (RFOST). Per the IP Technical Specifications (TS), the fuel oil is sampled nominally every 92 days and analyzed to determine if it is within limits for specified parameters, including total particulate concentration. If the particulate concentration is above the stated limit, it must be restored to below the limit within seven days for an FOST, or 30 E:\FR\FM\08MYN1.SGM 08MYN1
