Anti-dumping

On December 31, 2009 a coalition of U.S. firms and a labor union filed simultaneous anti-dumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) petitions against imports of drill pipe from China. The specific petitioners are VAM Drilling USA, Inc., TMK IPSCO, Texas Conversion Services, Inc., Rotary Drill Tools, and the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union, AFL-CIO-CLC. The product in question is related to, but distinct from, the oil country tubular goods that are the focus of a separate trade-remedy investigation (see the Global Trade Alert description of this measure). The United States imported $174.8 million worth of this product from China in 2008, accounting for 41.4% of U.S. imports of the item.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) reached a tied (3 to 3) vote in the preliminary injury phase of the investigation on February 12, 2010; under U.S. trade-remedy law, ties are resolved in favor of the affirmative. 
On June 8, 2010 the Department of Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese exporters of drill pipe have received countervailable subsidies of 15.72 percent. August 6, 2010 the Department of Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese producers/exporters of drill pipe have sold drill pipe in the United States at margins ranging between 0.00 and 429.29 percent.
 
The last step is the USITC's final injury determination, with a vote scheduled on January 4, 2011. That finding having been affirmative, the Department of Commerce issued an AD order and a CVD order, both of them published on March 3, 2011.
