[Docket No. 50-443]

Seabrook Station, Unit No. 1; FPL Energy Seabrook, LLC; Notice of 
Withdrawal of Application for Amendment to Facility Operating License

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or the Commission) has 
granted the request of FPL Energy Seabrook, LLC (FPLE or the licensee) 
to withdraw its March 28, 2005, application for an amendment to 
Facility Operating License No. NPF-86 for the Seabrook Station, Unit 
No. 1 (Seabrook), located in Rockingham County, New Hampshire.
    The proposed amendment would have revised the Seabrook Technical 
Specification (TS) 3/4.9.13, ``Spent Fuel Assembly Storage,'' to 
reflect a revised criticality safety analysis. This analysis was 
intended to support a two-zone spent fuel pool (SFP) consisting of 
BORAFLEX[reg] and BORAL[reg] fuel assembly storage racks. Additionally, 
the proposed change would have created TS 3/4.9.15, ``Spent Fuel Pool 
Boron Concentration,'' to support the planned SFP changes.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on May 10, 2005 
(70 FR 24653). However, by letter dated October 24, 2005, FPLE withdrew 
the proposed change.
