UNITED STATES NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION WASHINGTON, D.C. 20555-0001 November 30, 2018 Mr. Keith Jury Vice President, Regulatory Assurance Entergy Services, Inc. M-ECH-61 1340 Echelon Parkway Jackson, MS 39213

SUBJECT:

ARKANSAS NUCLEAR ONE, UNITS 1 AND 2, AND GRAND GULF NUCLEAR STATION, UNIT 1-ISSUANCE OF CONFORMING AMENDMENTS RE: TRANSFERS OF RENEWED FACILITY OPERATING LICENSES (EPID L-2018-LLM-0003)

Dear Mr. Jury:

By letter dated August 1, 2018 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System (ADAMS) Accession No. ML18177A236), the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC, the Commission) issued orders to Entergy Operations, Inc. (the licensee), approving the following:

  • The direct transfer of Renewed Facility Operating License (RFOL) Nos. DPR-51 and NPF-6 for Arkansas Nuclear One, Units 1 and 2, and the general license for the independent spent fuel storage installation currently held by Entergy Arkansas, Inc., as owner, to a new limited liability company, Entergy Arkansas, LLC (EAL). EAL would acquire ownership of the facilities, and Entergy Operations, Inc. would remain responsible for the operation and maintenance of Arkansas Nuclear One, Units 1 and 2, and the independent spent fuel storage installation.
  • The indirect transfer of membership interests of EAL (the owner of Arkansas Nuclear One) to an intermediate company, Entergy Utility Holding Company, LLC, which would be the new parent company of EAL.
  • The indirect transfer of membership interests of Entergy Louisiana, LLC (the owner of River Bend Station, Unit 1; Waterford Steam Electric Station, Unit 3; and the associated independent spent fuel storage installation), to the extent Entergy Louisiana, LLC, is affected by the addition of EAL; Entergy Mississippi, LLC; and Entergy New Orleans, LLC, to Entergy Utility Holding Company, LLC. By letter dated November 15, 2018 (ADAMS Accession No. ML18319A347), the licensee provided satisfactory documentary evidence of the appropriate amount of insurance required by Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 140 and 10 CFR Section 50.54. The letter also notified the NRC of the November 30, 2018, targeted closing date for the license transfer.

Accordingly, the Commission has issued the enclosed Amendment No. 262 for RFOL No. DPR-51 (Enclosure

1) and Amendment No. 312 for RFOL No. NPF-6 (Enclosure
2) for K. Jury Arkansas Nuclear One, Units 1 and 2, respectively, to reflect the direct transfer of ownership of the facilities.

By letter dated August 1, 2018, the NRC staff determined that the transfer of antitrust responsibilities for RFOL No. NPF-29 for Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, Unit 1 (Grand Gulf), and the associated general license for the independent spent fuel storage installation, from Entergy Mississippi, Inc. to a new limited liability company, Entergy Mississippi, LLC, did not meet the criteria in 1 O CFR 50.80 for a license transfer.

Therefore, the NRC did not issue an order for Grand Gulf. However, the Commission has issued the enclosed Amendment No. 215 for RFOL No. NPF-29 (Enclosure

3) for Grand Gulf to reflect the name of the newly formed entity with antitrust responsibilities as a result of the proposed transaction.

The safety evaluation supporting the conforming amendments was enclosed with the orders issued on August 1, 2018. Enclosures 4 and 5 contain signed originals of Amendment No. 13 to Indemnity Agreement No. B-65 and Amendment No. 7 to Indemnity Agreement No. B-72, respectively, which are required in connection with the transfer of the licenses.

Please sign one original and return it to the NRC's Document Control Desk as proof of acceptance.

Please sign the other originals and keep them for your records. Notice of Issuance will be included in the Commission's biweekly Federal Register notice. Docket Nos. 50-313, 50-368, 72-13, 50-416, and 72-50
