UNITED STATES OF AMERICA NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION In the Matter of: SCANA CORPORATION, SOUTH CAROLINA ELECTRIC & GAS COMPANY, DOMINION ENERGY, INC., Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Unit No. 1, and Independent, Spent Fuel Storage Installation Docket Nos. 50–395, 72– 1038, Renewed Facility Operating, License No. NPF–12; and, General License for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation ORDER SUPERSEDING ORDER OF AUGUST 30, 2018 APPROVING INDIRECT TRANSFER OF LICENSES I. South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) and the South Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper) are the holders of Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–12 and the general license for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) for the Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station (VCSNS), Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI. SCE&G is the licensed operator of VCSNS, Unit 1 and the ISFSI. SCE&G is a wholly owned subsidiary of SCANA Corporation (SCANA). VCSNS is located in Fairfield County, South Carolina. II. By application dated January 25, 2018, SCE&G, acting for itself and its parent company, SCANA, and Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion PO 00000 Frm 00073 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 51507 Energy) (together, the Applicants) requested, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.80 (10 CFR 50.80), that the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the indirect transfer of SCE&G’s ownership interest in the Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF–12, Combined License Nos. NPF– 93 and NPF–94, and the general license for the associated ISFSI. The proposed indirect transfer does not involve Santee Cooper’s ownership interest in VCSNS, Unit 1, 2 and 3, and the ISFSI. The Combined License Nos. NPF–93 and NPF–94 indirect license transfer is addressed in a separate Order. The proposed indirect license transfer would facilitate a merger between Dominion Energy and SCANA, the parent company of SCE&G. The transaction would be effected through the merger of SCANA and Sedona Corp. (Sedona), which is a South Carolina corporation and subsidiary of Dominion Energy formed for the sole purpose of merging with SCANA. Sedona would be merged with and into SCANA, with SCANA remaining as the surviving corporation, which will be a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy. Approval of the indirect transfer of the Renewed Facility Operating License and ISFSI was requested by SCE&G and Dominion Energy. A notice entitled, ‘‘Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Unit 1, 2, and 3, and Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation; Consideration of Approval of Transfer of License,’’ was published in the Federal Register on March 8, 2018 (83 FR 9876). 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. After the indirect transfer, SCE&G would remain a wholly owned subsidiary of SCANA, which in turn would become a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion Energy. SCE&G would remain the licensed co-owner and operator of VCSNS, Unit 1 and the ISFSI. Upon review of the information in the application, and other information before the Commission, the NRC staff has determined that the Applicants are qualified to hold the licenses to the extent proposed to permit the indirect transfer. The NRC staff has also determined that indirect transfer of the licenses, as described in the application, is otherwise consistent with the applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the E:\FR\FM\11OCN1.SGM 11OCN1 51508 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 197 / Thursday, October 11, 2018 / Notices khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES NRC, pursuant thereto, subject to the conditions set forth below. On August 30, 2018, the Commission issued, ‘‘Order Approving Indirect Transfer of Licenses,’’ for VCSNS, Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI. Subsequently, the NRC staff determined that corrections were needed to the cover letter, Orders, and the safety evaluation. This Order contains the correction and supersedes the VCSNS, Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI, Order issued on August 30, 2018. The findings set forth above are supported by a safety evaluation dated September 24, 2018. III. Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 42 USC § 2201(b), 2201(i), 2201(o), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the application regarding the proposed indirect license transfer is approved for VCSNS, Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI. IT IS ORDERED that after receipt of all required regulatory approvals of the proposed indirect transfer action, SCE&G shall inform the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation in writing of such receipt no later than 2 business days prior to the date of the closing of the indirect transfer. Should the proposed indirect transfer not be completed within 1 year of this Order’s date of issue, this Order shall become null and void, provided, however, upon written application and good cause shown, such date may be extended by order. This Order supersedes the Order issued on August 30, 2018, and is effective upon issuance.

SUMMARY: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) issued Orders

[[Page 51507]]

approving an application filed by South Carolina Electric & Gas Company 
(SCE&G) and Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy) on January 25, 
2018, that supersedes and corrects an error in the Orders issued on

NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION
In the Matter of: SCANA CORPORATION, SOUTH CAROLINA ELECTRIC & GAS 
COMPANY, DOMINION ENERGY, INC., Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Unit 
No. 1, and Independent, Spent Fuel Storage Installation Docket Nos. 50-
395, 72-1038, Renewed Facility Operating, License No. NPF-12; and, 
General License for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation
ORDER SUPERSEDING ORDER OF AUGUST 30, 2018 APPROVING INDIRECT TRANSFER 
OF LICENSES

I.

    South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) and the South 
Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper) are the holders of 
Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-12 and the general license 
for the Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation (ISFSI) for the 
Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station (VCSNS), Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI. 
SCE&G is the licensed operator of VCSNS, Unit 1 and the ISFSI. SCE&G is 
a wholly owned subsidiary of SCANA Corporation (SCANA). VCSNS is 
located in Fairfield County, South Carolina.

II.

    By application dated January 25, 2018, SCE&G, acting for itself and 
its parent company, SCANA, and Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy) 
(together, the Applicants) requested, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.80 (10 CFR 50.80), that the 
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the indirect 
transfer of SCE&G's ownership interest in the Renewed Facility 
Operating License No. NPF-12, Combined License Nos. NPF-93 and NPF-94, 
and the general license for the associated ISFSI. The proposed indirect 
transfer does not involve Santee Cooper's ownership interest in VCSNS, 
Unit 1, 2 and 3, and the ISFSI. The Combined License Nos. NPF-93 and 
NPF-94 indirect license transfer is addressed in a separate Order.
    The proposed indirect license transfer would facilitate a merger 
between Dominion Energy and SCANA, the parent company of SCE&G. The 
transaction would be effected through the merger of SCANA and Sedona 
Corp. (Sedona), which is a South Carolina corporation and subsidiary of 
Dominion Energy formed for the sole purpose of merging with SCANA. 
Sedona would be merged with and into SCANA, with SCANA remaining as the 
surviving corporation, which will be a direct wholly-owned subsidiary 
of Dominion Energy.
    Approval of the indirect transfer of the Renewed Facility Operating 
License and ISFSI was requested by SCE&G and Dominion Energy. A notice 
entitled, ``Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Unit 1, 2, and 3, and 
Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation; Consideration of Approval 
of Transfer of License,'' was published in the Federal Register on 
March 8, 2018 (83 FR 9876). 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. After the 
indirect transfer, SCE&G would remain a wholly owned subsidiary of 
SCANA, which in turn would become a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion 
Energy. SCE&G would remain the licensed co-owner and operator of VCSNS, 
Unit 1 and the ISFSI. Upon review of the information in the 
application, and other information before the Commission, the NRC staff 
has determined that the Applicants are qualified to hold the licenses 
to the extent proposed to permit the indirect transfer. The NRC staff 
has also determined that indirect transfer of the licenses, as 
described in the application, is otherwise consistent with the 
applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the

[[Page 51508]]

NRC, pursuant thereto, subject to the conditions set forth below.
    On August 30, 2018, the Commission issued, ``Order Approving 
Indirect Transfer of Licenses,'' for VCSNS, Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI. 
Subsequently, the NRC staff determined that corrections were needed to 
the cover letter, Orders, and the safety evaluation. This Order 
contains the correction and supersedes the VCSNS, Unit No. 1 and the 
ISFSI, Order issued on August 30, 2018.
    The findings set forth above are supported by a safety evaluation 
dated September 24, 2018.

III.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of the 
Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (the Act), 42 USC Sec.  2201(b), 
2201(i), 2201(o), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that 
the application regarding the proposed indirect license transfer is 
approved for VCSNS, Unit No. 1 and the ISFSI.
    IT IS ORDERED that after receipt of all required regulatory 
approvals of the proposed indirect transfer action, SCE&G shall inform 
the Director of the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation in writing of 
such receipt no later than 2 business days prior to the date of the 
closing of the indirect transfer. Should the proposed indirect transfer 
not be completed within 1 year of this Order's date of issue, this 
Order shall become null and void, provided, however, upon written 
application and good cause shown, such date may be extended by order.
    This Order supersedes the Order issued on August 30, 2018, and is 
effective upon issuance.
    For further details with respect to this Order, see the initial 
application dated January 25, 2018 (Agencywide Documents Access and 
Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML18025C035), and the Safety 
Evaluation dated September 24, 2018. (ADAMS Accession No. ML18255A256), 
which are available for public inspection at the Commission's Public 
Document Room (PDR), located at One White Flint North, Public File Area 
01 F21, 11555 Rockville Pike (first floor), Rockville, Maryland.

ORDER SUPERSEDING ORDER OF AUGUST 30, 2018 APPROVING INDIRECT TRANSFER 
OF LICENSES

I.

    South Carolina Electric & Gas Company (SCE&G) and the South 
Carolina Public Service Authority (Santee Cooper) are the holders of 
Combined License (COL) Nos. NPF-93 and NPF-94 for the Virgil C. Summer 
Nuclear Station (VCSNS), Unit Nos. 2 and 3. SCE&G is a wholly owned 
subsidiary of SCANA Corporation (SCANA). VCSNS is located in Fairfield 
County, South Carolina.

II.

    By application dated January 25, 2018, SCE&G, acting for itself and 
its parent company, SCANA, and Dominion Energy, Inc. (Dominion Energy) 
(together, the Applicants) requested, pursuant to Title 10 of the Code 
of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), Section 50.80 (10 CFR 50.80), that the 
U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) consent to the indirect 
transfer of SCE&G's ownership interest in Renewed Facility Operating 
License No. NPF-12, Combined License Nos. NPF-93 and NPF-94, and the 
general license for the associated Independent Spent Fuel Storage 
Installation (ISFSI). The proposed indirect transfer does not involve 
Santee Cooper's ownership interest in VCSNS, Units 1, 2 and 3, and the 
ISFSI. The Renewed Facility Operating License No. NPF-12 and the 
general license for the ISFSI indirect license transfer is addressed in 
a separate Order.
    The proposed indirect license transfer would facilitate a merger 
between Dominion Energy and SCANA, the parent company of SCE&G. The 
merger would be effected through the merger of SCANA and Sedona Corp. 
(Sedona), which is a South Carolina corporation and subsidiary of 
Dominion Energy formed for the sole purpose of merging with SCANA. 
Sedona would be merged with and into SCANA, with SCANA remaining as the 
surviving corporation which will be a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of 
Dominion Energy.
    Approval of the indirect transfer of the Combined License Nos. NPF-
93 and NPF-94 was requested by SCE&G and Dominion Energy. A notice 
entitled, ``Virgil C. Summer Nuclear Station, Unit 1, 2, and 3, and 
Independent Spent Fuel Storage Installation; Consideration of Approval 
of Transfer of License,'' was published in the Federal Register on 
March 8, 2018 (83 FR 9876). 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

indirect transfer, SCE&G would remain a wholly owned subsidiary of 
SCANA, which in turn would become a wholly owned subsidiary of Dominion 
Energy. SCE&G would remain the licensed co-owner and operator of VCSNS, 
Units 2 and 3. Upon review of the information in the licensee's 
application, and other information before the Commission, the NRC staff

the extent proposed to permit the indirect transfer. The NRC staff has 
also determined that indirect transfer of the licenses, as described in 
the application, is otherwise consistent with the applicable provisions 
of law, regulations, and orders issued by the NRC, pursuant thereto,

    On August 30, 2018, the Commission issued, ``Order Approving 
Indirect Transfer of Licenses,'' for VCSNS, Units 2 and 3. 
Subsequently, the NRC staff determined that corrections were needed to 
the cover letter, Orders, and the safety evaluation. This Order 
contains the correction and supersedes the VCSNS, Units 2 and 3, Order 
issued on August 30, 2018.
    The findings set forth above are supported by a safety evaluation 
dated September 24, 2018.

III.

    Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of the
