Notice of NRC consideration of the license transfer application was published in the Federal Register (FR) on October 19, 2018 (83 FR 53119) and included an opportunity to comment, request a hearing, and petition for leave to intervene. The comment period was re-opened on December 10, 2018 (83 FR 63544) for an additional 30-days. Two hearing requests were received. These requests can be found at ADAMS Accession Numbers ML18306A866 and ML18312A251. These hearing requests are currently pending before the Commission. Public comments were also received on this application for license transfer. They are summarized in the safety evaluation for this license transfer request. The staff notes that, by letter dated November 30, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18334A215), in support of the license transfer request, HDI submitted a request for exemptions, pursuant to 10 CFR 50.12, from certain requirements in 10 CFR 50.82(a)(8)(i)(A) and 10 CFR 50.75(h)(1)(iv) to allow the use of a portion of the funds from Oyster Creek decommissioning trust funds (DTF) for management of spent fuel and site restoration activities. The submittal also requests an exemption from 10 CFR 50.75(h)(1)(iv) to allow Oyster Creek DTF disbursements for spent fuel management and site restoration activities to be made without prior notice, similar to withdrawals in accordance with 10 CFR 50.82(a)(8). The staff approved the exemption requests on June 20, 2019 (ADAMS Accession No. ML19113A204 (Pkg)). The exemption is being issued simultaneously with this Order. Pursuant to 10 CFR 50.80, no license for a production or utilization facility, or any right thereunder, shall be transferred, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license to any person, unless the Commission gives its consent in writing. Upon review of the information in the application and other information before the Commission, and relying upon the representations and agreements contained in the application, the NRC staff has determined that HDI and OCEP are qualified to be the holders of the license, and that the direct transfer of the license, as described in the application, is otherwise consistent with applicable provisions of law, regulations, and orders issued by the Commission pursuant thereto, subject to the condition set forth below. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:47 Jun 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 Upon review of the application for a conforming amendment to the Oyster Creek license to reflect the direct transfer of the Oyster Creek license, the NRC staff determined the following: (1) The application for the proposed license amendment complies with the standards and requirements of the AEA, and the Commission’s rules and regulations set forth in 10 CFR Chapter I. (2) There is reasonable assurance that the activities authorized by the proposed license amendment can be conducted without endangering the health and safety of the public, and that such activities will be conducted in compliance with the Commission’s regulations. (3) The issuance of the proposed license amendment will not be inimical to the common defense and security or to the health and safety of the public. (4) The issuance of the proposed license amendment is in accordance with 10 CFR part 51 of the Commission’s regulations, and all applicable requirements have been satisfied. The findings set forth above are supported by the NRC safety evaluation dated June 20, 2019, which is available at ADAMS Accession No. ML19095A457. III. Accordingly, pursuant to Sections 161b, 161i, 161o, and 184 of the AEA, 42 U.S.C. Sections 2201(b), 2201(i), 2201(o), and 2234; and 10 CFR 50.80, 10 CFR 72.50, and 10 CFR 50.90, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that the application for the direct transfer of the license, as described herein is approved for Oyster Creek and the ISFSI, subject to the following condition: Prior to the closing of the license transfer, OCEP and HDI shall provide the Directors of NRC’s Office of Nuclear Material Safety and Safeguards (NMSS) and Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation (NRR) satisfactory documentary evidence that they have obtained the appropriate amount of insurance required of a licensee under 10 CFR 140.11(a)(4) and 10 CFR 50.54(w) of the Commission’s regulations, consistent with the exemptions issued to Oyster Creek on June 12, 2019. IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that, consistent with 10 CFR 2.1315(b), the license amendment that makes changes, as indicated in Enclosure 2 to the cover letter forwarding this Order, to conform the license to reflect the subject direct license transfer, is approved. The amendment shall be issued and made effective within 30 days of the date of when the proposed direct license transfer action is completed. PO 00000 Frm 00171 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that HDI and OCEP shall, at least 2 business days prior to closing, inform the Directors of NMSS and NRR in writing of the date of closing of the license transfer for Oyster Creek and the ISFSI. Should the transfer of the license not be completed within 1 year of this Order’s date of issuance, this Order shall become null and void; provided, however, that upon written application and for good cause shown, such date may be extended by order. This Order is effective upon issuance.
