investigation. However, section 733(c)(1) of the Act permits Commerce 
to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 190 days 
after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A)

Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the 
investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time 
is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 
351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 
days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination 
and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the 
request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request.

subsidiaries, Terra Nitrogen, Limited Partnership and Terra 
International (Oklahoma) LLC (collectively, the petitioner).

    On October 26, 2021, the petitioner submitted timely requests that 
Commerce postpone the preliminary determinations in the LTFV 
investigations of UAN from Trinidad and Tobago and Russia.\3\ The 
petitioner requested postponement of these LTFV investigations so that 
Commerce could further develop the records and to allow interested 
parties to examine and comment on the records.\4\

from the Russian Federation (A-821-831): Petitioner's Request for
