FTZ procedures could exempt Firth Rixson from customs duty payments on foreign titanium used in export production. The company anticipates that some 54 percent of the plant’s shipments will be exported. On its domestic sales, Firth Rixson would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to aircraft turbine engine components and forged rings of titanium (duty rates— free, 2.4%, 5.5%) for the foreign-origin titanium noted above. FTZ designation would further allow Firth Rixson to realize logistical benefits through the use of weekly customs entry procedures. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign status production equipment. Firth Rixson would also be exempt from duty payments on foreign inputs that become scrap during the production process. The application indicates that the savings from FTZ procedures would help improve the facility’s international competitiveness. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Pierre Duy of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board.

If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 25301 the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Rochester Customs and Border Protection port of entry.

ACTION: Update. AGENCY: Mission Description The United States Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service (CS) is organizing a Trade Mission to from June 20–24, 2011. This Executive led mission will include representatives from a variety of U.S. firms specializing in, but not limited to the following Industries: • Oil and Gas • Medical and Health Care • Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) • Environmental Technologies • Shipping Transportation and Freight Forwarding Mission participants will be introduced to international agents, distributors, and end-users whose capabilities and services are targeted to each participant’s needs. This mission will contribute to National Export Initiative goals through increased sales of oil and gas equipment/services; information and communication technologies, medical and health care, environmental technologies, shipping transportation and freight forwarding, etc. in Turkey and Kazakhstan. Participants will have an opportunity to meet with major international companies, integrated service providers, potential agents and distributors as well as potential public and private buyers in Istanbul and Ankara, Turkey and Almaty, Kazakhstan. The mission will include matchmaking meetings in different cities including site visits of commercial interest. We are targeting 15 U.S. company representatives responsible for their corporate activity in Eurasia. Commercial Setting—Turkey Turkey, the world’s 17th largest economy, is a major consumer of oil and gas. Although oil and gas produced in Turkey currently meets only a small fraction of the country’s demand, there are significant prospects offshore in the PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Black Sea, and onshore in the Thrace region of western Turkey, and the East and Southeast. Between 2002 and 2009, 747 wells were drilled. In 2009 alone, $716 million was spent for oil and gas exploration and production in Turkey. As of today, only 20% of onshore prospects and 1% of offshore prospects have been explored. Chevron and ExxonMobil announced important exploration efforts in 2009 and 2010 in the Western Black Sea Region. Companies offering technologies and services for exploration and production can also find a market in the geothermal sector: Turkey ranks No.1 in Europe and 7 in the world in terms of geothermal power potential. Turkey is a crucial corridor between the energy-rich Caspian and Middle East and Europe. The planned 3,300 km NABUCCO natural gas pipeline will link Caspian and Middle Eastern suppliers through Turkey to Central Europe, and will create major opportunities for U.S. companies. The total capacity of the pipeline will be 25 to 31 BCMA. Estimated investment costs including financing costs for the entire pipeline system will be well over $10 billion. Other potential pipeline projects include Italy—Greece—Turkey Interconnector (ITGI) and Trans Adriatic Pipeline (TAP). In addition to oil and gas exploration and production activities and pipelines, new refinery and petrochemical plants are planned over the next decade, with a projected increase of over 90% in refining capacity by 2019, to over 1.3 million BPD. Turkey’s oil and gas market provides excellent opportunities for U.S. companies within the following product areas: 1. Offshore and onshore oil and gas exploration and production equipment and services, 2. 2–D and 3–D Seismic equipment and engineering services, 3. Shale gas exploration and production equipment and services, 4. Horizontal Drilling equipment and services, 5. Petrochemical processing equipment and services, 6. Geothermal energy exploration and drilling equipment and engineering services, 7. Coal-bed methane production equipment and services, 8. Compressors, turbines, measuring meters, SCADA systems, and pumps for pipelines, 9. Pipeline construction equipment and engineering services, 10. Refinery processing equipment and refinery auxiliary units, 11. Oil and Gas Storage Systems. E:\FR\FM\04MYN1.SGM 04MYN1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 29, 2010, the Department of Commerce (the Department) 
published in the Federal Register the initiation of administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on floor-standing, metal top 
ironing tables and certain parts thereof from the People's Republic of 
China, covering the period of August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010. 
See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative 
Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 60076 (September 29, 
2010). The current deadline for the preliminary results of this review 
is May 3, 2011.

Extension of Time Limits for Preliminary Results of Review

    Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), requires that the Department complete the preliminary results of 
an administrative review within 245 days after the last day of the 
anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested. However, 
if it is not practicable to complete the review within this time 
period, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend 
the time limit for the preliminary results to a maximum of 365 days 
after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a 
review is requested.
    The Department finds that it is not practicable to complete the 
preliminary results of this review within the original time frame 
because we require additional time to solicit and analyze complex data 
regarding steel inputs, factors of production and surrogate values. 
Thus, the Department finds it is not practicable to complete this 
review within the original time limit (i.e., May 3, 2011). Accordingly, 
the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the 
preliminary results of this administrative review by 120 days (i.e., 
until August 31, 2011, in accordance with section 751(a)(3)(A) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(2)). We intend to issue the final results no 
later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results 
notice.
    This extension is issued and published in accordance with sections 
751(a)(3)(A) and 777(i) of the Act.
