The adjective from the verb 'to abate' is spelled with only one '-e-', at the end - abatable. Do not spell it abateable.

Although King, 2001 lists this in his list of The 2,000 Most Misspelt Words in the English Language, it is not common. Debatable (to which the same remark about spelling applies) is more often seen.
