SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC 
or the Commission) has granted the request of Wolf Creek Nuclear 
Operating Corporation (the licensee) to withdraw its application dated 
November 4, 2010 (ADAMS Accession No. ML103200209), as supplemented by 
letters dated October 19, 2011 (ADAMS Accession No. ML11312A137), and 
January 31, 2012 (ADAMS Accession No. ML12039A091), for proposed 
amendment to Facility Operating License No. NPF-42 for the Wolf Creek 
Generating Station, located in Coffey County, Kansas.
    The proposed amendment would have revised Technical Specification 
(TS) 5.6.5, ``CORE OPERATING LIMITS REPORT (COLR),'' to replace the 
existing large break loss-of-coolant accident (LOCA) analysis 
methodology. Specifically, the proposed change adds a reference to 
WCAP-16009-P-A, ``Realistic Large Break LOCA Evaluation Methodology 
Using Automated Statistical Treatment of Uncertainty Method (ASTRUM),'' 
to TS 5.6.5b.
    The Commission had previously issued a Notice of Consideration of 
Issuance of Amendment published in the Federal Register on December 28, 
2010 (75 FR 81673). However, by letter dated August 23, 2012 (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML12248A261), the licensee withdrew the proposed change.
    For further details with respect to this action, see the 
application for amendment dated November 4, 2010, as supplemented by 
letters dated October 19, 2011, and January 31, 2012, and the 
licensee's letter dated August 23, 2012,
