Offshore Energy would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The materials/components sourced from abroad include steel weld-on pin and box threaded connectors, steel weld-on high pressure wellhead housings, and steel weld-on low pressure wellhead housings, for use in oil and gas drilling operations (duty rate ranges from duty-free to 2.9%). The request indicates that certain materials/ components are subject to special duties under Section 301 of the Trade Act of 1974 (Section 301), depending on the country of origin. The applicable Section 301 decisions require subject merchandise to be admitted to FTZs in privileged foreign status (19 CFR 146.41). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is April 21, 2020.

Disclosure of Calculations

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results within five days of the date of publication of this notice to 
parties in this proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protections (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review. We will calculate importer-specific assessment rates on 
the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties 
calculated for each importer's examined sales and the total entered 
value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
    Commerce's ``reseller policy'' will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by each respondent for which it did 
not know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the respondents 
noted above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by companies not covered in this review but covered in a prior 
segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit will continue to be the 
company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment 
of this proceeding in which the company participated; (3) if the 
exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the original 
investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recently completed segment for the 
producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for 
all other producers or exporters will continue to be 2.66 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value 
investigation.\11\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that

information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR
