The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (the Commission) has granted the request of STP Nuclear Operating Company (the licensee) to withdraw its May 23, 2002, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License No. NPF-76 and Facility Operating License No. NPF-80 for the South Texas Project (STP), Units 1 and 2, respectively. STP, Units 1 and 2 are located in Matagorda County, Texas.
The proposed amendments would have revised the facility Technical Specifications 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 to extend the allowable outage times (AOTs) for main steam line isolation valves, extend the AOT for the main feedwater isolation valves, and allow more than one main feedwater isolation valves to be inoperable.
The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on June 25, 2002 (67 FR 42831). However, by letter dated June 17, 2003, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated May 23, 2002, and the licensee's letter dated June 17, 2003, which withdrew the application for license amendments.
