SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On April 27, 2009, the Department published the initiation of the 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded 
carbon steel pipes and tubes (pipes and tubes) from Thailand for the 
period March 1, 2008 through February 28, 2009. See Initiation of 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request 
for Revocation in Part 74 FR FR 19042 (April 27,2009) (Initiation 
Notice). This review covers the respondent, Saha Thai Steel Pipe 
(Public) Co., Ltd. (Saha Thai), a producer/exporter of the subject 
merchandise to the United States.

Extension of Time Limit for the 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.
    The Department requires additional time to evaluate Saha Thai's 
questionnaire responses in order to conduct a thorough analysis of all 
information on the record. Specifically, the Department needs more time 
to analyze respondent's cost information and to consider whether to use 
quarterly costs as Saha Thai has requested. The Department, therefore, 
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, 2009 to March 31, 2010.
    This notice is issued and published pursuant to sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: November 18, 2009.
John M. Andersen,
Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Operations.
