Start Supplemental Information
On July 18, 2014, the Department published in the Federal Register its final determination in this investigation.
Prior to that, on July 14, 2014, the Department disclosed to interested parties its calculations for the final determination in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Subsequently, on July 21, 2014, United States Steel Corporation, a petitioner in the investigation, filed a timely allegation that the Department committed a ministerial error related to certain U.S. sales made by Interpipe Europe S.A.; Interpipe Ukraine LLC; PJSC Interpipe Niznedneprovsky Tube Rolling Plant (aka Interpipe NTRP); LLC Interpipe Niko Tube; and, North American Interpipe Inc. (collectively, Interpipe) during the POI.
No additional allegations or comments were filed by any other interested party.
As noted in the Final Determination, on July 10, 2014, the Department signed a suspension agreement with Interpipe.
The Department continued and completed this investigation pursuant to the requests for continuation in accordance with section 734(g) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).
Scope of the Investigation
The merchandise covered by the investigation is certain OCTG, which are hollow steel products of circular cross-section, including oil well casing and tubing, of iron (other than cast iron) or steel (both carbon and alloy), whether seamless or welded, regardless of end finish (e.g., whether or not plain end, threaded, or threaded and coupled) whether or not conforming to American Petroleum Institute (API) or non-API specifications, whether finished (including limited service OCTG products) or unfinished (including green tubes and limited service OCTG products), whether or not thread protectors are attached. The scope of the investigation also covers OCTG coupling stock. For a complete description of the scope of the investigation, see the Appendix to this notice.
The Department's regulations at 19 CFR 351.224(f) defines a “ministerial error” as an error “in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.” 
After analyzing the ministerial error allegation, we determine, in accordance with section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), that a ministerial error was made in the Final Determination. For a detailed discussion of this ministerial error, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.
Start Printed Page 52304The amended final weighted-average dumping margins are listed in the “Amended Final Determination” section below.
Amended Final Determination
In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the final affirmative determination of sales at less than fair value by revising the weight-averaged dumping margin calculated for Interpipe. Furthermore, because the all-others rate was derived entirely from Interpipe's margin,
we also are amending the “all-others” rate.
We determine the revised weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:
|Exporter or producer||Weighted-average dumping margin (percent)|
|Interpipe Europe S.A.; Interpipe Ukraine LLC; PJSC Interpipe Niznedneprovsky Tube Rolling Plant (aka Interpipe NTRP); LLC Interpipe Niko Tube||7.47|
Terminated Suspension of Liquidation
In light of the Suspension Agreement, in accordance with section 734(f)(2)(A) of the Act, we terminated the suspension of liquidation of entries of OCTG from Ukraine and stated that any cash deposits for such entries posted pursuant to section 733(d)(1)(B) of the Act shall be refunded.
The suspension of liquidation remains terminated in accordance with section 734(f)(2)(A) of the Act notwithstanding these amended final results.
International Trade Commission Notification
In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we have notified the International Trade Commission of our amended final determination.
We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice pursuant to sections 735(d), 735(e), and 777(i) of the Act.
Dated: August 26, 2014.
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
