Download as PDF pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES 28220 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 113 / Monday, June 15, 2009 / Notices SUMMARY: In accordance with the Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and implementing regulations, notification is hereby given that NMFS has issued a one-year Letter of Authorization (LOA) to take marine mammals incidental to the explosive removal of offshore oil and gas structures (EROS) in the Gulf of Mexico. DATES: This authorization is effective from June 17, 2009 through June 16, 2010. ADDRESSES: The application and LOA are available for review by writing to P. Michael Payne, Chief, Permits, Conservation, and Education Division, Office of Protected Resources, National Marine Fisheries Service, 1315 EastWest Highway, Silver Spring, MD 20910–3235 or by telephoning the contact listed here (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT), or online at: http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/permits/ incidental.htm. Documents cited in this notice may be viewed, by appointment, during regular business hours, at the aforementioned address. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Howard Goldstein or Ken Hollingshead, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, 301–713–2289. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 101(a)(5)(A) of the MMPA (16 U.S.C. 1361 et seq.) directs the NMFS to allow, upon request, the incidental, but not intentional, taking of small numbers of marine mammals by United States citizens who engage in a specified activity (other than commercial fishing) within a specified geographical region, if certain findings are made by NMFS and regulations are issued. Under the MMPA, the term ‘‘taking’’ means to harass, hunt, capture, or kill or to attempt to harass, hunt capture, or kill marine mammals. Authorization for incidental taking, in the form of annual LOAs, may be granted by NMFS for periods up to five years if NMFS finds, after notification and opportunity for public comment, that the taking will have a negligible impact on the species or stock(s) of marine mammals, and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on the availability of the species or stock(s) for subsistence uses (where relevant). In addition, NMFS must prescribe regulations that include permissible methods of taking and other means effecting the least practicable adverse impact on the species and its habitat (i.e., mitigation), and on the availability of the species for subsistence uses, paying particular attention to rookeries, mating rounds, and areas of similar significance. The regulations also must include requirements pertaining to the VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:47 Jun 12, 2009 Jkt 217001 monitoring and reporting of such taking. Regulations governing the taking incidental to EROS were published on June 19, 2008 (73 FR 34889), and remain in effect through July 19, 2013. For detailed information on this action, please refer to that Federal Register notice. The species that applicants may take in small numbers during EROS activities are bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus), Atlantic spotted dolphins (Stenella frontalis), pantropical spotted dolphins (Stenella attenuata), Clymene dolphins (Stenella clymene), striped dolphins (Stenella coeruleoalba), spinner dolphins (Stenella longirostris), rough-toothed dolphins (Steno bredanensis), Risso’s dolphins (Grampus griseus), melonheaded whales (Peponocephala electra), short-finned pilot whales (Globicephala macrorhynchus), and sperm whales (Physeter macrocephalus). Pursuant to these regulations, NMFS has issued an LOA to SPN Resources, LLC. Issuance of the LOAs is based on a finding made in the preamble to the final rule that the total taking by these activities (with monitoring, mitigation, and reporting measures) will result in no more than a negligible impact on the affected species or stock(s) of marine mammals and will not have an unmitigable adverse impact on subsistence uses. NMFS also finds that the applicant will meet the requirements contained in the implementing regulations and LOA, including monitoring, mitigation, and reporting requirements. Dated: June 9, 2009.

Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People's Republic of 
China: Postponement of Preliminary Determination in the Countervailing 
Duty Investigation

respectively.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 5, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') 
initiated an investigation of certain oil country tubular goods from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). See Certain Oil Country 
Tubular Goods from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of 
Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 FR 20678 (May 5, 2009). 
Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than July 2, 
2009.

Postponement of Due Date for Preliminary Determination

    Under section 703(c)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the ``Act''), the Department may extend the period for reaching a 
preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation until 
no later than the 130th day after the date on which the administering 
authority initiates an investigation, if the administration determines 
that the parties are cooperating and the case is extraordinarily 
complicated. The Department finds that the instant case is 
extraordinarily complicated by reason of the number and complexity of 
the alleged countervailable subsidy practices, the need to determine 
the extent to which particular countervailable subsidies are used by 
individual manufacturers, producers, and exporters, and the number of 
firms whose activities must be investigated. Accordingly, we are fully 
extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later 
than 130 days after the day on which the investigation was initiated 
(i.e., September 5, 2009). However, September 5, 2009, falls on a 
Saturday and it is the Department's long-standing practice to issue a 
determination the next business day when the statutory deadline falls 
on a weekend, federal holiday, or any other day when the Department is 
closed. See Notice of Clarification: Application of ``Next Business 
Day'' Rule for Administrative Determination Deadlines Pursuant to the 
Tariff Act of 1930, As Amended, 70 FR 24533 (May 10, 2005). 
Accordingly, the deadline for completion of the preliminary 
determination is now no later than September 8, 2009.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(e).
