Start Preamble

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) has granted the request of Duke Energy Start Printed Page 61318Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its August 26, 2004, application for proposed amendments to Facility Operating License No. DPR-38, DPR-47, and DPR-55, for the Oconee Nuclear Station, Units 1, 2, and 3, located in Seneca County, SC.

The proposed amendment would have revised the Technical Specification 3.3.29 and its associated Bases to accommodate new circuitry that isolates nonsafety portions of the low pressure service water system piping inside containment that supplies the reactor building auxiliary coolers.

The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on September 28, 2004 (69 FR 57983). However, by letter dated September 29, 2005, the licensee withdrew the proposed change.

For further details with respect to this action, see the application for amendment dated August 26, 2004, and the licensee's letter dated September 29, 2005, which withdrew the application for license amendment.
