International Trade Administration
As part of the U.S.-Norway Oil and Gas Industry Summit in Houston, the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Petroleum and Energy and the U.S. Department of Commerce are pleased to invite you, or a representative you designate from your company, to a breakfast briefing on opportunities on the Norwegian Continental Shelf (NCS). The briefing will provide offshore exploration and production companies with an overview of the resource potential and the framework conditions on the NCS. Although Norway is the third largest oil exporter in the world, only about \1/4\ of the total estimated petroleum resources on the NCS have been produced. With the large quantities of petroleum that remain to be discovered, the NCS offers a variety of oil and gas opportunities in both established and frontier basins. Norway also has a well established and competitive petroleum industry, predictable and transparent framework conditions, and an approachable and skilled public administration.
Certain Cased Pencils from the People's Republic of China; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Intent to Rescind in Part
The Department of Commerce (the Department) has preliminarily determined that sales by the respondents in this review, covering the period December 1, 2002, through November 30, 2003, have been made at prices less than normal value (NV). In addition, we are preliminarily rescinding this review with respect to Tianjin Custom Wood Processing Co., Ltd. (TCW), because TCW reported, and we confirmed, that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department invites interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.
