To be timely, an electronic filing must be submitted to the e-filing system no later than 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time (ET) on the due date. Upon receipt of a transmission, the e-filing system time-stamps the document and sends the submitter an email notice confirming receipt of the document. The e-filing system also distributes an email notice that provides access to the document to the NRC’s Office of the General Counsel and any others who have advised the Office of the Secretary that they wish to participate in the proceeding, so that the filer need not serve the documents on those participants separately. Therefore, any others who wish to participate in the proceeding (or their counsel or representative) must apply for and receive a digital ID certificate before a hearing request/petition to intervene is filed so that they can obtain access to the document via the e-filing system. A person filing electronically using the NRC’s adjudicatory e-filing system may seek assistance by contacting the NRC Meta System Help Desk through the ‘‘Contact Us’’ link located on the NRC’s Web site at http://www.nrc.gov/ site-help/e-submittals.html, by email at MSHD.Resource@nrc.gov, or by a tollfree call at (866) 672–7640.

Transfers of License

I

    Entergy Louisiana, LLC (ELL) and Entergy Operations, Inc. (EOI) 
(the licensees), are co-holders of Facility Operating License (FOL) No. 
NPF-38 for the Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 (Waterford). 
ELL is the licensed owner, and EOI is licensed operator and is 
authorized to possess, use, and operate Waterford, which is located in 
St. Charles Parish, Louisiana.
    Entergy Gulf States Louisiana, L.L.C. (EGSL) and EOI (the 
licensees), are co-holders of FOL No. NPF-47 for the River Bend 
Station, Unit No. 1 (RBS). EGSL is the licensed owner, and EOI is the 
licensed operator and is authorized to possess, use, and operate RBS 
which is located in West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana.

II

    By application dated June 10, 2014, as supplemented by letters 
dated October 9, 2014, December 31, 2014, and January 30, 2015, EOI 
requested on behalf of itself, ELL, EGSL, and their parent companies 
(together, the Applicants), under Section 50.80, ``Transfer of 
licenses,'' of Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the direct 
transfers of the operating licenses for Waterford and RBS to a new 
limited liability company named Entergy Louisiana, LLC. The newly 
formed company has maintained the same name as the current owner of 
Waterford; Entergy Louisiana, LLC. (To distinguish between the two 
companies, ``ELL'' will only be used when referencing the current owner 
of Waterford.) In addition, the Applicants requested the NRC's consent 
to the associated indirect license transfers of RBS and Waterford due 
to the creation of a new intermediary holding company. The license 
transfers are necessary to support the corporate reorganization to 
permit the combination of the assets and liabilities of two utility 
operating companies, which are subsidiaries of Entergy Corporation 
(Entergy). Entergy will remain as the ultimate parent company, but a 
new intermediate company, Entergy Utility Holding Company, LLC, a Texas 
limited liability company, will become the direct parent company of the 
newly formed Entergy Louisiana, LLC. When the transactions are 
completed, the newly formed Entergy Louisiana, LLC will acquire 100 
percent ownership of RBS and Waterford. EOI will remain responsible for 
the operation and maintenance of RBS and Waterford. The transaction 
will also result in the transfer of the general license for the 
Waterford independent spent fuel storage installation held by the 
Applicants under 10 CFR Part 50.
    No physical changes to the Waterford facility or operational 
changes are being proposed in the application.
    Approval of the direct and indirect license transfers of the FOLs 
was requested by EOI, acting on behalf of ELL, as well as their parent 
companies and itself. A notice entitled, ``River Bend Station, Unit 1, 
and Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3; Consideration of Approval 
of Transfer of License and Conforming Amendment,'' was published in the 
Federal Register on December 3, 2014 (79 FR 71803). The NRC has 
received two comments from the public. No hearing requests or petitions 
to intervene were received.
    Under 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 gives its consent in writing. Upon 
review of the information in the licensees' application, and other 
information before the Commission, relying upon the representations and 
agreements contained in the application, the NRC staff has determined 
that the newly formed Entergy Louisiana, LLC, is qualified to acquire 
and directly hold the ownership interest under FOL No. NPF-38 for 
Waterford as described in the application, and has further determined 
that both the direct and indirect transfers of control of the subject 
license, as described in the application, are otherwise consistent with 
the applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the 
NRC, pursuant thereto, subject to the conditions set forth below.
    The findings set forth above are supported by a safety evaluation 
dated August 14, 2015.

III

    Accordingly, under Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of the Atomic 
Energy Act of 1954, as amended, 42 U.S.C. Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), 
2201(o), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, it is hereby ordered that the 
application for the direct and indirect license transfers related to 
the proposed corporate restructuring, in connection with the merger of 
EGSL and ELL is approved, subject to the following condition:
    1. Before completion of the proposed transaction, Entergy 
Operations, Inc. shall provide the Director of the Office of Nuclear 
Reactor Regulation satisfactory documentary evidence that the newly 
formed Entergy Louisiana, LLC has obtained the appropriate amount of 
insurance required of the licensees under 10 CFR Part 140, ``Financial 
Protection Requirements and Indemnity Agreements,'' of the Commission's 
regulations.
    It is further ordered that after receipt of all required regulatory 
approvals of the proposed direct transfer action, EOI shall inform the 
Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation in writing of such 
receipt, and of the date of closing, no later than 1 business day 
before the closing of the direct transfer. Should the proposed direct 
transfer not be completed within 1 year of this Order's date of 
issuance, this Order shall become null and void. However, upon written 
application and good cause shown, such date may be extended by Order.
    This Order is effective upon issuance.
