On the basis of the record 
developed in the subject investigations, the United States International Trade Commission (“Commission”) determines, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) and (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) (“the Act”), that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of imports of certain oil country tubular goods from India, Korea, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam, provided for in subheadings 7304.29, 7305.20, and 7306.29 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, that have been found by the Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) to be sold in the United States at less than fair value (“LTFV”) and to be subsidized by the governments of India and Turkey.
The Commission also determines, pursuant to section 735(b) of the Act, that an industry in the United States is threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain oil country tubular goods from Taiwan that have been found by Commerce to be sold in the United States at LTFV.
The Commission further determines that imports of these products from the Philippines and Thailand are negligible pursuant to section 771(24) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1677(24)), and its investigations with regard to these countries are thereby terminated pursuant to section 735(b) of the Act.
The Commission instituted these investigations effective July 2, 2013, following receipt of a petition filed with the Commission and Commerce by United States Steel Corporation, Pittsburgh, PA; Maverick Tube Corporation, Houston, TX; Boomerang Tube LLC, Chesterfield, MO; Energex, a division of JMC Steel Group, Chicago, IL; Northwest Pipe Company, Vancouver, WA; Tejas Tubular Products Inc., Houston, TX; TMK IPSCO, Houston, TX; Vallourec Star, L.P., Houston, TX; and Welded Tube USA, Inc., Lackawanna, NY. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by Commerce regarding the subsidization of imports of certain oil country tubular goods from India and Turkey within the meaning of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) and sales at less than fair value of imports of certain oil country tubular goods from India, Korea, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam within the meaning of section 733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)). Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigations and of a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Start Printed Page 53081Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register on April 7, 2014 (79 FR 19122).
