In a petition for review of orders of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) which granted the application of a power company to surrender its license to operate a hydroelectric project and to remove the project's dam and powerhouse, the petition is denied where: 1)  approving the license surrender and dam removal for the project did not automatically trigger FERC approval of the other features of certain related settlement agreements; and 2) FERC lacked authority to relicense or transfer a license and facilities without the licensee's consent.
