ConocoPhillips Company, Trainer Refinery, Including On-Site 
Leased Workers From Shrack, Young, and Associates, Inc., and Project 
Control Associates, Trainer, PA; Notice of Revised Determination on 
Reconsideration

    On April 30, 2012, the Department of Labor issued a Notice of 
Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for Reconsideration 
applicable to workers and former workers of ConocoPhillips Company, 
Trainer Refinery, Trainer, Pennsylvania (subject firm). The subject 
firm is engaged in activities related to the production of gasoline, 
distillate, and heavy oil. The subject worker group includes on-site 
leased workers from Shrack, Young, and Associates, Inc. and Project 
Control Services.
    Based on information obtained during the reconsideration 
investigation, the Department determines that increased imports of 
articles like or directly competitive with gasoline, distillate, and 
heavy oil contributed importantly to workers' separations.
    Section 222(a)(1) has been met because a significant number or 
proportion of the workers in such workers' firm have become totally or 
partially separated, or are threatened to become totally or partially 
separated.
    Section 222(a)(2)(A)(i) has been met because the sales and/or 
production of gasoline, distillate, and heavy oil by ConocoPhillips 
Company, Trainer Refinery, Trainer, Pennsylvania have decreased 
absolutely.
    Section 222(a)(2)(A)(ii) has been met because imports by 
ConocoPhillips Company of articles like or directly competitive with 
those produced by ConocoPhillips Company, Trainer Refinery, Trainer, 
Pennsylvania, have increased during the relevant period.
    Finally, Section 222(a)(2)(A)(iii) has been met because the 
increased imports contributed importantly to the worker group 
separations and sales/production declines at ConocoPhillips Company, 
Trainer Refinery, Trainer, Pennsylvania.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the additional facts obtained on 
reconsideration, I determine that workers of ConocoPhillips Company, 
Trainer Refinery, Trainer, Pennsylvania, who were engaged in employment 
related to the production of gasoline, distillate, and heavy oil, meet 
the worker group certification criteria under Section 222(a) of the 
Act, 19 U.S.C. 2272(a). In accordance with Section 223 of the Act, 19 
U.S.C. 2273, I make the following certification:

    All workers of ConocoPhillips Company, Trainer Refinery, 
including on-site leased workers from Shrack, Young, and Associates, 
Inc. and Project Control Services, Trainer, Pennsylvania 
Pennsylvania, who became totally or partially separated from 
employment on or after February 13 2010, through two years from the 
date of this certification, and all workers in the group threatened 
with total or partial separation from employment on date of 
certification through two years from the date of certification, are 
eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Chapter 2 of Title 
II of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended.
