Halliburton Energy Services, 2600 S. 2nd Street, Duncan, 
Oklahoma; Notice of Affirmative Determination Regarding Application for 
Reconsideration

    By application dated June 22, 2016, workers requested 
administrative reconsideration of the negative determination regarding 
workers' eligibility to apply for worker adjustment assistance 
applicable to workers and former workers of Halliburton Energy 
Services, 2600 S. 2nd Street, Duncan, Oklahoma. The determination was 
issued on May 22, 2016.
    Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c) reconsideration may be granted under 
the following circumstances:
    (1) If it appears on the basis of facts not previously considered 
that the determination complained of was erroneous;
    (2) If it appears that the determination complained of was based on 
a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or
    (3) If in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a 
misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of 
the decision.
    The initial investigation resulted in a negative determination 
based on the findings that increased imports of oil and natural gas did 
not contribute importantly to the separations at Halliburton Energy 
Services, the firm did not shift the production of oil or natural gas 
to a foreign country or acquire oil or natural gas from a foreign 
country. Furthermore, the firm was not a Supplier or Downstream 
Producer to a firm whose workers were certified eligible to apply for 
Trade Adjustment Assistance and the firm was not publicly named by the 
International Trade Commission as a part of a domestic industry in an 
affirmative finding of serious injury, market disruption, or material 
injury, or threat thereof.
    The request for reconsideration asserts that workers in the same 
location are receiving the same benefits.
    The Department of Labor has carefully reviewed the request for 
reconsideration and the existing record, and has determined that the 
Department will conduct further investigation to determine if the 
workers meet the eligibility requirements of the Trade Act of 1974.

Conclusion

    After careful review of the application, I conclude that the claim 
is of sufficient weight to justify reconsideration of the U.S. 
Department of Labor's prior decision. The application is, therefore, 
granted.

    Signed at Washington, DC, this 22nd day of August, 2016.
