Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 ORDER APPROVING INDIRECT TRANSFER OF CONTROL OF LICENSE daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES I. Entergy Louisiana, LLC (ELL) and Entergy Operations, Inc. (EOI) (together, the licensees) are co-holders of Facility Operating License No. NPF-38 for Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 (Waterford), and the general license for the independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI). ELL is the owner and EOI is authorized to possess, use, and operate Waterford and the ISFSI, which are located in St. Charles Parish, Louisiana. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:03 Aug 09, 2018 Jkt 244001 II. By application dated September 21, 2017, EOI requested, on behalf of itself, ELL, and their parent companies (together, the applicants), pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Section 50.80, ‘‘Transfer of licenses,’’ that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the indirect transfer of membership interests in ELL to the extent ELL is affected by the addition of Entergy Arkansas, LLC (EAL); Entergy Mississippi, LLC (EML); and Entergy New Orleans, LLC (ENOL) to Entergy Utility Holding Company, LLC (EUHC). These changes will result (upon execution of the transfers) in additional members of EUHC that may dilute the resources and voting power of its members. The application proposes no physical or operational changes to the facilities. The interconnections that provide offsite power to Waterford do not change as a result of the proposed indirect license transfer. The applicants requested NRC approval of the indirect transfer of membership interests in ELL. The NRC published a notice, ‘‘Arkansas Nuclear One, Units 1 and 2; Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, Unit 1; River Bend Station, Unit 1; and Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3 Consideration of Approval of Transfer of Licenses and Conforming Amendments,’’ in the Federal Register on December 29, 2017 (82 FR 61800). No comments or hearing requests 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 NRC gives its consent in writing. Upon review of the information in the application and other information before the Commission, the NRC staff has determined that the licensees are qualified to hold the license to the extent proposed to permit the indirect transfer of membership interests in ELL to the extent ELL is affected by the addition of EAL, EML, and ENOL to EUHC. The NRC staff has also determined that the proposed license transfer is otherwise consistent with the applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the NRC pursuant thereto. The findings set forth above are supported by an NRC safety evaluation dated August 1, 2018. III. Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, and 184 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended; Title 42 of the United States Code Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the application regarding the proposed indirect license transfer is approved. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, after receipt of all required regulatory approvals of the proposed 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 of the transfer, no later than 5 business days before the date of the closing of the transfer. Should the proposed indirect 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 for good cause shown, such date may be extended by order.

UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION

[Docket Nos. 50-458 and 72-49; License No. NPF-47]

In the Matter of Entergy Louisiana, LLC and Entergy Operations, Inc.

River Bend Station, Unit 1

ORDER APPROVING INDIRECT TRANSFER OF CONTROL OF LICENSE

I.

    Entergy Louisiana, LLC (ELL) and Entergy Operations, Inc. (EOI) 
(together, the licensees) are co-holders of Facility Operating 
License No. NPF-47 for River Bend Station, Unit 1 (RBS), and the 
general license for the independent spent fuel storage installation 
(ISFSI). ELL is the owner and EOI is authorized to possess, use, and 
operate RBS and the ISFSI, which are located in West Feliciana 
Parish, Louisiana.

II.

    By application dated September 21, 2017, EOI requested, on 
behalf of itself, ELL, and their parent companies (together, the 
applicants), pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations 
(10 CFR) Section 50.80, ``Transfer of licenses,'' that the U.S. 
Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the indirect transfer 
of membership interests in ELL to the extent ELL is affected by the 
addition of Entergy Arkansas, LLC (EAL); Entergy Mississippi, LLC 
(EML); and Entergy New Orleans, LLC (ENOL) to Entergy Utility 
Holding Company, LLC (EUHC). These changes will result (upon 
execution of the transfers) in additional members of EUHC that may 
dilute the resources and voting power of its members.
    The application proposes no physical or operational changes to 
the facilities. The interconnections that provide offsite power to 
RBS do not change as a result of the proposed indirect license 
transfer.
    The applicants requested NRC approval of the indirect transfer 
of membership interests in ELL. The NRC published a notice, 
``Arkansas Nuclear One, Units 1 and 2; Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, 
Unit 1; River Bend Station, Unit 1; and Waterford Steam Electric 
Station, Unit 3 Consideration of Approval of Transfer of Licenses 
and Conforming Amendments,'' in the Federal Register on December 29, 
2017 (82 FR 61800). No comments or hearing requests 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 NRC gives its consent in writing. Upon 
review of the information in the application and other information 
before the Commission, the NRC staff has determined that the 
licensees are qualified to hold the license to the extent proposed 
to permit the indirect transfer of membership interests in ELL to 
the extent ELL is affected by the addition of EAL, EML, and ENOL to 
EUHC. The NRC staff has also determined that the proposed license 
transfer is otherwise consistent with the applicable provisions of 
law, regulations, and orders issued by the NRC pursuant thereto. The 
findings set forth above are supported by an NRC safety evaluation 
dated August 1, 2018.

III.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, and 184 of the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended; Title 42 of the United States 
Code Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, IT IS 
HEREBY ORDERED that the application regarding the proposed indirect 
license transfer is approved.
    IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, after receipt of all required 
regulatory approvals of the proposed 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 of the transfer, 
no later than 5 business days before the date of the closing of the 
transfer. Should the proposed indirect 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 for good 
cause shown, such date may be extended by order.
    This order is effective upon issuance.
    For further details with respect to this order, see the 
application dated September 21, 2017 (Agencywide Documents Access 
and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML17268A213), and the 
NRC's safety evaluation dated August 1, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. 
ML18177A236), which are available for public inspection at the NRC's 
Public Document Room, located at One White Flint North, Public File 
Area 01-F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, 
Maryland. Publicly available documents created or received at the 
NRC are accessible electronically through ADAMS in the NRC Library
