Oil Country Tubular Goods from Japan: Notice of Intent to Rescind Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
The Department of Commerce (the Department) is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on oil country tubular goods (OCTG) from Japan in response to a request by United States Steel Corporation, one of the petitioners in the original investigation (Petitioner). Petitioner requested administrative reviews of JFE Steel Corporation (JFE), Nippon Steel Corporation (Nippon), NKK Tubes (NKK) and Sumitomo Metal Industries, Ltd. (SMI). This review covers sales of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of August 1, 2004 through July 31, 2005. We preliminarily determine that JFE and NKK had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the period of review (POR), and that Nippon and SMI had no reviewable sales of subject merchandise during the POR. Accordingly, we preliminarily determine that the review of these four companies should be rescinded in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. See the ``Intent to Rescind the Administrative Review'' section of this notice.
