ITC Votes to Impose Duties on Oil Country Tubular Goods from Four Countries
On October 26, 2022, the U.S. International Trade Commission voted unanimously that unfairly traded imports of Oil Country Tubular Goods (“OCTG”) from Argentina, Mexico, Russia, and South Korea injured the U.S. industry. Imports of these products from the subject countries were valued at approximately $950 million in 2021.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from Russia and South Korea, and antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from Argentina, Mexico, and Russia.
Schagrin Associates filed the petitions underlying the investigations on behalf of Borusan Mannesmann Pipe U.S., Inc. (Baytown, TX); PTC Liberty Tubulars LLC (Liberty, TX); U.S. Steel Tubular Products, Inc. (Pittsburgh, PA); United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO, CLC (Pittsburgh, PA); and Welded Tube USA, Inc.
