See Drill Pipe From the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Critical Circumstances, 76 FR 1966 (January 11, 2011) (‘‘Final Determination’’). On February 8, 2011, the Department published its amended final determination of sales at less than fair value in antidumping duty investigation of drill pipe from the PRC. See Drill Pipe From the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Determination of Critical Circumstances, 76 FR 6762 (February 8, 2011). On February 24, 2011, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), that an industry in the United States is threatened with material injury by reason of less than fair value imports of subject merchandise from the PRC. See letter from the ITC to the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, dated February 24, 2011. In addition, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from the PRC that are subject to the Department’s affirmative critical circumstances finding. Pursuant to section 736(a) of the Act, the Department is publishing an antidumping duty order on drill pipe from the PRC. Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are steel drill pipe, and steel drill collars, whether or not conforming to American Petroleum Institute (‘‘API’’) or non-API specifications. Included are finished drill pipe and drill collars without regard to the specific chemistry of the steel (i.e., carbon, stainless steel, or PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11757 other alloy steel), and without regard to length or outer diameter. Also included are unfinished drill collars (including all drill collar green tubes) and unfinished drill pipe (including drill pipe green tubes, which are tubes meeting the following description: seamless tubes with an outer diameter of less than or equal to 65⁄8 inches (168.28 millimeters), containing between 0.16 and 0.75 percent molybdenum, and containing between 0.75 and 1.45 percent chromium). The scope does not include tool joints not attached to the drill pipe, nor does it include unfinished tubes for casing or tubing covered by any other antidumping or countervailing duty order. The subject products are currently classified in the following Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) categories: 7304.22.0030, 7304.22.0045, 7304.22.0060, 7304.23.3000, 7304.23.6030, 7304.23.6045, 7304.23.6060, 8431.43.8040 and may also enter under 8431.43.8060, 8431.43.4000, 7304.39.0028, 7304.39.0032, 7304.39.0036, 7304.39.0040, 7304.39.0044, 7304.39.0048, 7304.39.0052, 7304.39.0056, 7304.49.0015, 7304.49.0060, 7304.59.8020, 7304.59.8025, 7304.59.8030, 7304.59.8035, 7304.59.8040, 7304.59.8045, 7304.59.8050, and 7304.59.8055. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Antidumping Duty Order On February 24, 2011, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final determination that an industry in the United States is threatened with material injury within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act by reason of less-than-fair-value imports of drill pipe from the PRC. Because the ITC’s final determination is based on the threat of material injury and is not accompanied by a finding that injury would have resulted but for the imposition of suspension of liquidation of entries since the Department’s preliminary determination, section 736(b)(2) of the Act is applicable. Therefore, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to terminate the suspension of liquidation, and to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of drill pipe from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption prior to the publication E:\FR\FM\03MRN1.SGM 03MRN1 11758 Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 42 / Thursday, March 3, 2011 / Notices of the ITC’s final determination and release any bond or other security posted and refund any cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties made between the publication of the Department’s preliminary determination on August 18, 2010, and the publication of the ITC’s final determination.

the ITC notified the Department of its final determination that 
critical circumstances do not exist with respect to imports of subject 
merchandise from the PRC that are subject to the Department's 
affirmative critical circumstances finding. Pursuant to section 736(a) 
of the Act, the Department is publishing an antidumping duty order on 
drill pipe from the PRC.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by the order are steel drill pipe, and steel 
drill collars, whether or not conforming to American Petroleum 
Institute (``API'') or non-API specifications. Included are finished 
drill pipe and drill collars without regard to the specific chemistry 
of the steel (i.e., carbon, stainless steel, or other alloy steel), and 
without regard to length or outer diameter. Also included are 
unfinished drill collars (including all drill collar green tubes) and 
unfinished drill pipe (including drill pipe green tubes, which are 
tubes meeting the following description: seamless tubes with an outer 
diameter of less than or equal to 6\5/8\ inches (168.28 millimeters), 
containing between 0.16 and 0.75 percent molybdenum, and containing 
between 0.75 and 1.45 percent chromium). The scope does not include 
tool joints not attached to the drill pipe, nor does it include 
unfinished tubes for casing or tubing covered by any other antidumping

Antidumping Duty Order

    On February 24, 2011, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, 
the ITC notified the Department of its final determination that an 
industry in the United States is threatened with material injury within 
the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the Act by reason of less-
than-fair-value imports of drill pipe from the PRC.
    Because the ITC's final determination is based on the threat of 
material injury and is not accompanied by a finding that injury would 
have resulted but for the imposition of suspension of liquidation of 
entries since the Department's preliminary determination, section 
736(b)(2) of the Act is applicable. Therefore, the Department will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to terminate the 
suspension of liquidation, and to liquidate without regard to 
antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of drill pipe from the PRC 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption prior to the 
publication

[[Page 11758]]

of the ITC's final determination and release any bond or other security 
posted and refund any cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties made 
between the publication of the Department's preliminary determination 
on August 18, 2010, and the publication of the ITC's final 
determination. Suspension of liquidation will continue starting on or 
after the date of publication of the ITC's notice of final 
determination of threat of material injury in the Federal Register, 
except for the imports of subject merchandise from those combinations 
of producers and exporters identified below:

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, for all other 
manufacturers/exporters we will instruct CBP to suspend liquidation on 
all entries of subject merchandise from the PRC effective on the date 
of publication of the ITC's notice of final determination in the 
Federal Register. We will also instruct CBP to require, at the same 
time as importers would normally deposit estimated customs duties on 
this merchandise, cash deposits for the subject merchandise equal to 
the estimated weighted-average antidumping margins listed below. See 
section 736(a)(3) of the Act. The estimated dumping margins for imports 
of subject merchandise from the PRC will be adjusted for export 
subsidies found in the final determination of the companion 
countervailing duty investigation of this merchandise imported from the 
PRC. See Drill Pipe From the People's Republic of China: Final 
Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, Final Affirmative 
Critical Circumstances Determination, 76 FR 1971 (January 11, 2011). 
Specifically, for cash deposit purposes, we are subtracting from the 
antidumping cash deposit rate applicable to DP-Master Manufacturing 
Co., Ltd. and Jiangyin Liangda Drill Pipe Co., Ltd. (``collectively 
``the DP-Master Group'') and for the separate-rate companies, the rate 
attributable to the export subsidies calculated in the affirmative 
countervailing duty determination on drill pipe from the PRC for the 
DP-Master Group, the sole respondent in that investigation. See Final 
Determination. The all others rate or PRC-wide rate, as applicable, 
apply to all producers or exporters not specifically listed.
    In accordance with section 736 of the Act, the Department will also 
direct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all unliquidated entries of 
subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date on which the ITC publishes its 
notice of final determination of threat of material injury in the 
Federal Register.

will instruct CBP to lift suspension and to release any bond or other 
security, and refund any cash deposit made, to secure the payment of
