Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise covered by this investigation is certain oil 
country tubular goods (OCTG), which are hollow steel products of 
circular cross-section, including oil well casing and tubing, of iron 
(other than cast iron) or steel (both carbon and alloy), whether 
seamless or welded, regardless of end finish (e.g., whether or not 
plain end, threaded, or threaded and coupled) whether or not conforming 
to American Petroleum Institute (API) or non-API specifications, 
whether finished (including limited service OCTG products) or 
unfinished (including green tubes and limited service OCTG products), 
whether or not thread protectors are attached. The scope of the 
investigation also covers OCTG coupling stock. For a complete

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties in 
this investigation are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum 
which is hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues raised is 
attached to this notice as Appendix II. The Issues and Decision 
Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically via 
Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (IA ACCESS). IA ACCESS is 
available to registered users at https://iaaccess.trade.gov and it is

https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and electronic versions 
of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at 
verification, we made certain changes to the calculations of the 
weighted-average dumping margins. For a discussion of these changes, 
see the ``Margin Calculations'' section of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Act, in March and April, 2014, 
we verified the sales and cost information submitted by Jindal SAW Ltd. 
(Jindal SAW) and GVN Fuels Limited (GVN) for use in our final 
determination. We used standard verification procedures including an 
examination of relevant accounting and production records, and original 
source documents provided by Jindal SAW and GVN.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See the memoranda, ``Verification of the Sales Response of 
Jindal SAW Ltd. in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of Oil Country 
Tubular Goods from India,'' May 5, 2014; ``Verification of the Sales 
Response of GVN Fuels Ltd in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of 
Oil Country Tubular Goods from India,'' May 5, 2014; and 
``Verification of the Sales Response of Jindal SAW USA LLC and 
Jindal SAW's U.S. Branch in the Antidumping Duty Investigation of 
Oil Country Tubular Goods from India,'' May 5, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Negative Determination of Critical Circumstances

    In the Preliminary Determination, the Department found that 
critical circumstances exist for Jindal SAW, but not for GVN or for all 
other producers and exporters, in accordance with section 733(e)(1) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.206(c)(1).\3\ Our analysis of the data and 
comments submitted by interested parties leads us to change our 
findings from the Preliminary Determination.\4\ Therefore, in 
accordance with section 735(a)(3) of the Act, we find that critical 
circumstances do not exist with respect to imports from Jindal SAW or 
GVN, or all other producers or exporters of OCTG from India.

Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the estimated ``all 
others'' rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the 
weighted-average dumping margins calculated for the producers or 
exporters individually examined, excluding rates that are zero, de 
minimis or determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. We 
calculated an above de minimis weighted-average dumping margin for both 
of the mandatory respondents not based entirely on section 776 of the 
Act, but in weight-averaging these margins to arrive at the all others 
rate, we used public data so as not to disclose the proprietary 
information of Jindal SAW and GVN.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Memorandum, ``Calculation of the Final Determination 
All-Others Rate,'' July 10, 2014 (All-Others Rate Memorandum), 
providing the precise calculation relying on public information.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed within five days of the 
date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding in 
accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Suspension of Liquidation

    For GVN, because the Preliminary Determination was negative, the 
Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of subject merchandise 
that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the publication date of this final determination, in accordance 
with section 735(c)(1)(C) of the Act. For Jindal SAW and for all other 
producers or exporters, the Department will instruct CBP to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of subject merchandise 
that were entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after February 25, 2014, the publication date of the Preliminary 
Determination in the Federal Register. We find that critical 
circumstances do not exist for Jindal SAW, GVN or any of the all other 
producers or exporters. Accordingly, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise without regard to 
antidumping duties from Jindal SAW that were suspended prior to the 
publication date of the Preliminary Determination.
    Further, the Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit 
equal to the weighted-average amount by which the normal value exceeds 
U.S. price, adjusted where appropriate for export subsidies, as 
follows: (1) The rate for Jindal SAW and GVN, when adjusted for export 
subsidies, is zero percent; (2) if the exporter is not a firm 
identified in this investigation, but the producer is, the rate will be 
the rate established for the producer of the subject merchandise, less 
export subsidies; (3) the rate for all other producers or

[[Page 41983]]

exporters when adjusted for export subsidies is zero percent.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Consistent with the Department's normal practice, because we 
calculated the ``All Others Rate'' in this investigation by weight-
averaging public data from the two mandatory respondents, the ``All 
Others Rate'' included an export subsidy rate equal to the average 
of the CVD export subsidy rates applicable to the mandatory 
respondents. See Utility Scale Wind Towers From the People's 
Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than 
Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 77 FR 46034, 
46043 (August 2, 2012); see also All-Others Rate Memorandum for the 
derivation of the All-Others export subsidies.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of our final determination. In 
addition, we are making available to the ITC all non-privileged and 
non-proprietary information related to this investigation. We will 
allow the ITC access to all privileged and business proprietary 
information in our files, provided the ITC confirms that it will not 
disclose such information, either publicly or under an administrative 
protective order (APO), without the written consent of the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 51.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries. Failure to comply with this requirement could 
result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice will serve as the only reminder to parties subject to 
an APO of their responsibility concerning the destruction of 
proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of return/destruction or APO 
materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: July 10, 2014.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary, for Enforcement and Compliance.
