Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from the People's Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, Affirmative Final Determination of Critical Circumstances and Final Determination of Targeted Dumping
On November 17, 2009, the Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') published its notice of preliminary determination of sales at less than fair value (``LTFV'') and affirmative preliminary determination of critical circumstances in the antidumping investigation of certain oil country tubular goods (``OCTG'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC'').\1\ The period of investigation (``POI'') is October 1, 2008, through March 31, 2009. We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary determination of sales LTFV and the post-preliminary memoranda. Based on our analysis of the comments received, we have made changes to our calculations for the mandatory respondents. We determine that OCTG from the PRC are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at LTFV as provided in section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act''). The estimated margins of sales at LTFV are shown in the ``Final Determination Margins'' section of this notice.
