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

Methodology

    We are conducting this administrative review in accordance with 
section 751(a)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
For each of the subsidy programs found to be countervailable, we 
preliminarily find that there is a subsidy, i.e., a financial 
contribution by an ``authority'' that gives rise to a benefit to the 
recipient, and that the subsidy is specific.\7\ For a full description 
of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is a public 
document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service

financial contribution; section 771(5)(E) of the Act regarding 
benefit; and, section 771(5A) of the Act regarding specificity.

Partial Rescission of Administrative Review

    As stated above, the Department initiated an administrative review 
of Toscelik for the period January 1, 2015 through December 31, 
2015.\8\ However, subsequent to the final and conclusive decision by 
the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit related to the underlying 
CVD investigation of OCTG from Turkey,\9\ Toscelik was excluded from 
the CVD order. On September 27, 2017, the Department amended the CVD 
order on OCTG from Turkey to exclude Toscelik.\10\ Accordingly, we are 
rescinding this administrative review with respect to Toscelik.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The Department determined that Toscelik Profil ve Sac 
Endustrisi A.S. and Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S. are cross-owned. See

Assessment Rates

    Consistent with section 751(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(2), upon issuance of the final results, the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
countervailing duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.
    As a result of Toscelik's exclusion from the CVD order on OCTG from

liquidation of entries of subject merchandise where Toscelik acted as 
both the producer and exporter during the period January 1, 2015, 
through December 31, 2015, and to liquidate, without regard to 
countervailing duties, all entries of OCTG produced and exported by 
Toscelik currently suspended. Entries of subject merchandise exported

involving Toscelik are not entitled to this exclusion from suspension 
of liquidation and are subject to the cash deposit rate for the ``all 
others'' entity. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice 
in the Federal Register.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    In accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, the Department 
intends to instruct CBP to collect cash deposits of estimated 
countervailing duties in the amount shown above for Borusan, should the 
final results of this administrative review remain the same as these 
preliminary results; if the rate is zero or de minimis, then zero cash 
deposit will be required. For all non-reviewed firms, we will instruct 
CBP to continue to collect cash deposits at the most recent company 
specific or all-others rate applicable to the company. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
