A lessee submits ONRR form 2014, Report of Sales and Royalty Remittance, monthly to report royalty on oil, gas, and geothermal leases. Each line contains the royalty owed and the basic elements necessary to calculate the royalty, such as lease number, agreement number, unit number, product code, sales type, sales volume, sales value, processing allowances, transportation allowances, royalty value prior to allowances, and royalty value less allowances. A lessee also uses the form to report certain rents.

An operator uses the following forms for production accounting and reporting: (i) Form ONRR–4054, Oil and Gas Operations Report: An operator submits this report monthly. Part A tracks the oil and gas volume produced from each Federal or Indian well. Part B tracks disposition of the oil and gas. Part C tracks the oil and gas inventory on the property.

The report is filed monthly to allocate the production to each source. ONRR uses the data to verify accurate production and royalty reporting. Title of Collection: Royalty and Production Reporting.

The complaint alleged violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337, based upon the importation into the United States, the sale for importation, and the sale within the United States after importation of certain portable gaming consoles with attachable handheld controllers and component thereof by reason of infringement of one or more of claims 1–4, 6–8, and 12–18 of U.S. Patent No. 10,391,393 (‘‘the ’393 patent’’). Id. The Commission’s notice of investigation named as respondents Nintendo Co., Ltd. of Kyoto, Japan, and Nintendo of America, Inc. of Redmond, Washington. Id. at 26493. The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) is participating in this investigation. Id. The Commission subsequently terminated the investigation with respect to claims 13–16 of the ’393 patent. Order No. 6 (Aug. 14, 2020), unreviewed by Comm’n Notice (Sept. 10, 2020) (terminating claims 13–15); Order No. 10 (Dec. 7, 2020), unreviewed by Comm’n Notice (Jan. 5, 2021) (terminating claim 16). On July 2, 2021, the presiding administrative law judge issued the subject ID finding no violation of section 337. The ID found that Gamevice failed to show that Nintendo infringed claims 1–4, 6–8, 12, 17, and 18 of the ’393 patent. The ID also found that Nintendo showed by clear and convincing evidence that claims 1–4, 6– 8, 16–18, 20, and 22 of the ’393 patent PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 are invalid. The ID found that Gamevice showed that at least one of its domestic industry products practices claims 8–11 of the ’393 patent, and that Gamevice established the economic prong with respect to that product, and therefore satisfied the domestic industry requirement with respect to valid claims 9–11 of the ’393 patent. On July 19, 2021, Gamevice petitioned for review with respect to the ID’s findings on noninfringement and invalidity with respect to claims 1–4, 6, 7, and 12 of the ’393 patent, thereby abandoning its case with respect to claims 8, 16–18, 20, and 22 of the ’393 patent. See 19 CFR 210.43(b)(2) (stating that ‘‘[a]ny issue not raised in petition for review will be deemed to have been abandoned by the petitioning party’’). That same day, Nintendo contingently petitioned for review with respect to the ID’s validity findings regarding claims 17, 19, and 21 based on indefiniteness, regarding claim 12 based on obviousness, and regarding claims 1–4, 6–8, and 17–18 based on a lack of adequate written description. On July 27, 2021, Gamevice and Nintendo opposed each other’s petitions, and OUII opposed both petitions. Having examined the record of this investigation, including the ID, the petitions for review, and the responses thereto, the Commission has determined to review and take no position on the issue of whether Gamevice demonstrated that it satisfied the economic prong of the domestic industry requirement. Beloit Corp. v. Valmet Oy, 742 F.2d 1421, 1423 (Fed. Cir. 1984). The Commission has determined not to review the remainder of the ID. The investigation is hereby terminated with a final determination of no violation of section 337. The Commission vote for this determination took place on September 3, 2021. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in part 210 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210). By order of the Commission. Issued: September 3, 2021. Lisa Barton, Secretary to the Commission. [FR Doc. 2021–19510 Filed 9–9–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 7020–02–P E:\FR\FM\10SEN1.SGM 10SEN1

reason of imports of methionine from Japan and Spain, provided for in 
subheadings 2930.40.00 and 2930.90.46 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States, that have been found by the U.S. Department of

Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).

Background

    The Commission, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 
1673d(b)), instituted antidumping duty investigations, effective July 
29, 2020, following receipt of petitions filed with the Commission and 
Commerce by Novus International Inc., St. Charles, Missouri. Effective, 
February 24, 2021, the Commission established a general schedule for 
the conduct of the final phase of its investigations on methionine, 
following a preliminary determination by Commerce that imports of 
methionine from France were being sold at LTFV within the meaning of 
section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the 
scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigations and of 
a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by 
posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. 
International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the 
notice in the Federal Register of March 9, 2021 (86 FR 13585). In light 
of the restrictions on access to the Commission building due to the 
COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission conducted its hearing by video 
conference on May 11, 2021. All persons who requested the opportunity 
were permitted to participate.
    The investigation schedules became staggered when Commerce: (i)

[[Page 50744]]

Postponed the final determinations for its antidumping duty 
investigations regarding methionine from Japan and Spain; and (ii) 
reached an earlier final antidumping duty determination concerning 
methionine from France. On June 30, 2021, the Commission issued a final 
affirmative determination in its antidumping duty investigation of 
methionine from France (86 FR 35826, July 7, 2021). Following 
notification of final determinations by Commerce that imports of 
methionine from Japan and Spain were being sold at LTFV within the 
meaning of section 735(a) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(a)), notice of 
the supplemental scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's 
antidumping duty investigations was given by posting copies of the 
notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade 
Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal 
Register of August 2, 2021 (86 FR 41513).
    The Commission made these determinations pursuant to Sec.  735(b) 
of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)). It completed and filed its 
determinations in these investigations on September 7, 2021. The views 
of the Commission are contained in USITC Publication 5230 (September 
2021), entitled Methionine from Japan and Spain: Investigation Nos.
