Canadian International Trade Tribunal Finds Threat of Injury: Seamless Oil and Gas Well Casing From China

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 10, 2008) - The Canadian International Trade Tribunal today found that the dumping and subsidizing of seamless carbon or alloy steel oil and gas well casing originating in or exported from the People's Republic of China had not caused injury but were threatening to cause injury to the domestic industry. Anti-dumping and countervailing duties will therefore be collected by the Canada Border Services Agency. The complainant in this case was TenarisAlgomaTubes Inc., of Calgary, Alberta.

The Tribunal will issue the reasons for its finding on March 25, 2008.

The Tribunal is an independent quasi-judicial body that reports to Parliament through the Minister of Finance. It hears cases on dumped and subsidized imports, safeguard complaints, complaints about federal government procurement and appeals of customs and excise tax rulings. When requested by the federal government, the Tribunal also provides advice on other economic, trade and tariff matters.
