We determine that this review is extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to sections 751(c)(5)(C) (i) and (ii) of the Act, because there are a large number of issues and the issues to be considered are complex. Therefore, the Department requires additional time to complete its analysis. The Department’s preliminary results of the sunset review of the antidumping duty order on OCTG are scheduled for September 19, 2006.

Background

    On June 1, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') 
published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of its 
sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on oil country tubular 
goods (``OCTG'') from Argentina, Italy, Japan, South Korea, and Mexico. 
See Initiation of Five-year (``Sunset'') Reviews, 71 FR 31153 (June 1, 
2006). On June 14, 2006, domestic interested party United States Steel 
Corporation (``U.S. Steel'') submitted a letter indicating its intent 
to participate in the sunset review on OCTG from Mexico. On June 15, 
2006, the domestic interested parties IPSCO Tubulars Inc., Lone Star 
Steel Company, Koppel Steel (NS Group), Maverick Tube Corporation, 
Newport Steel (NS Group), and V&M Star LP, submitted a letter 
indicating their intent to participate in the sunset reviews. On June 
29, 2006, June 30, 2006, and July 3, 2006, domestic and respondent 
interested parties provided substantive responses as required under 
section 351.218 (d)(3) of the Department's regulations. Respondent 
interested parties Hylsa, S.A. de C.V. (``Hylsa'') and Tubos de Acero 
de Mexico, S.A. (``TAMSA''), included, in their substantive responses, 
arguments regarding ``other factors'' under section 752(c)(2) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'') and their effect on the 
Department's determination whether dumping is likely to continue or 
recur. Domestic interested parties filed rebuttal comments on July 5, 
2006, and July 14, 2006.
    On July 21, 2006, the Department determined that the participation 
of the respondent interested parties was adequate, and that it was 
appropriate to conduct full sunset reviews. See Memorandum to Steven J. 
Claeys: Adequacy Determination; Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty 
Order on Oil Country Tubular Goods from Mexico, dated July 21, 2006,

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary and Final Results of Reviews

    The Act provides for the completion of a full sunset review within 
240 days of the publication of the initiation notice. See section 
751(c)(5)(A) of the Act. In accordance with section 751(c)(5)(B) of the 
Act, the Department may extend the period of time for making its 
determination by not more than 90 days, if it determines that the 
review is extraordinarily complicated. We determine that this review is 
extraordinarily complicated, pursuant to sections 751(c)(5)(C) (i) and 
(ii) of the Act, because there are a large number of issues and the 
issues to be considered are complex. Therefore, the Department requires
