SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 27, 2007, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register the notice of initiation of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Thailand. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 72 FR 20986 (April 27, 2007). The period of review is March 1, 2006 through February 28, 2007. Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and section 351.213(h)(1) of the Department’s regulations require the Department to issue the preliminary results of a review within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of the order or suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, and final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which the notice of the preliminary results is published in the Federal Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not practicable to complete the review within the aforementioned specified time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) of the Department’s regulations allow the Department to extend the 245–day period to 365 days and to extend the 120–day period to 180 days.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On May 2, 2007, the International Trade Commission determined revocation of the antidumping duty orders on seamless pipe from Argentina and Brazil would not likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States. See Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe from Argentina, Brazil, and Germany, 72 FR 26153 (May 8, 2007), and ITC Publication 3918 (May 2007), Investigation No. 731–TA–707– 709 (Second Review). Thus, the Department revoked the antidumping duty orders on seamless line pipe from Argentina and Brazil, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 751(d) of the Act. See Revocation Pursuant to Second Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Reviews of Antidumping Duty Orders: Certain Small Diameter Carbon and Alloy Seamless Standard, Line and Pressure Pipe from Argentina and Brazil, 72 FR 28027 (May 18, 2007) (Revocation of Seamless Pipe from Argentina and Brazil). The Department stated in the Revocation of Seamless Pipe from Argentina and Brazil that it will complete any pending administrative reviews of these orders and will conduct administrative reviews of subject merchandise entered prior to the effective date of revocation in response to appropriately filed requests for review. Pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(2)(i), the effective date of revocation is July 16, 2006. As a result, the Department is completing the instant review of seamless pipe from Brazil. Accordingly, the period of review for this proceeding is from August 1, 2005, to July 15, 2006. On July 11, 2007, the Department published the preliminary results of this 2006, the POR is August 1, 2005, through July 15, 2006.

We received no comments or a request for a hearing. Scope of the Antidumping Duty Review The products covered by this antidumping duty review are seamless pipes produced to the ASTM A–335, ASTM A–106, ASTM A–53 and API 5L specifications and meeting the physical parameters described below, regardless of application. The scope of this review also includes all products used in standard, line, or pressure pipe applications and meeting the physical parameters below, regardless of specification. For purposes of this review, seamless pipes are seamless carbon and alloy (other than stainless) steel pipes, of circular cross-section, not more than 114.3 mm (4.5 inches) in outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, manufacturing process (hot–finished or cold–drawn), end finish (plain end, beveled end, upset end, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or surface finish. These pipes are commonly known as standard pipe, line pipe or pressure pipe, depending upon the application. They may also be used in structural applications. Pipes produced in non– standard wall thickness are commonly referred to as tubes. The seamless pipes subject to this antidumping duty review are currently classifiable under subheadings 7304.19.10.20, 7304.19.50.20, 7304.31.60.50, 7304.39.00.16, 7304.39.00.20, 7304.39.00.24, 7304.39.00.28, 7304.39.00.32, 7304.51.50.05, 7304.51.50.60, 7304.59.60.00, 7304.59.80.10, 7304.59.80.15, 7304.59.80.20, and 7304.59.80.25 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). The following information further defines the scope of this order, which covers pipes meeting the physical parameters described above: Specifications, Characteristics and Uses: Seamless pressure pipes are intended for the conveyance of water, steam, petrochemicals, chemicals, oil products, natural gas, and other liquids and gasses in industrial piping systems. They may carry these substances at elevated pressures and temperatures and may be subject to the application of external heat. Seamless carbon steel pressure pipe meeting the ASTM standard A–106 may be used in temperatures of up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit, at various American Society of Mechanical Engineers (‘‘ASME’’) code stress levels. Alloy pipes made to ASTM standard A–335 must be used if E:\FR\FM\23OCN1.SGM 23OCN1

suspension agreement for which the administrative review was requested, 
and final results of the review within 120 days after the date on which 
the notice of the preliminary results is published in the Federal 
Register. However, if the Department determines that it is not 
practicable to complete the review within the aforementioned specified 
time limits, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and section 351.213(h)(2) 
of the Department's regulations allow the Department to extend the 245-
day period to 365 days and to extend the 120-day period to 180 days.

which these transactions occurred. Therefore, the Department finds that 
it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this 
review within the original time limit and is extending the deadline for 
completion of the preliminary results of this administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and 
tubes from Thailand by 120 days, from December 1, 2007 to March 30,

preliminary results no later than March 31, 2008, which is the next 
business day after the 120-day extension period.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
