The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of Duke Energy Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its December 20, 2001, application for proposed amendment to Renewed Facility Operating License No. DPR-38, DPR-47, and DPR-55 for the Oconee Nuclear Station, Units 1, 2, and 3, located in Seneca, South Carolina.
The proposed amendment would have revised the licensing basis associated with the failure of non-Category I (non-seismic) piping in the auxiliary building.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on January 22, 2002 (67 FR 2922). However, by letter dated April 23, 2002, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated December 20, 2001, and the licensee's letter dated April 23, 2002, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
