Postponement of Preliminary Countervailing Duty Determinations: 
Oil Country Tubular Goods (``OCTG'') From Austria and Italy

AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

EFFECTIVE DATE: August 24, 1994.

Jennifer Yeske (Austria) or Kristin M. Heim (Italy), Office of 
Countervailing Investigations, Import Administration, U.S. Department 
of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 
20230; telephone (202) 482-0189 or 482-3798, respectively.

POSTPONEMENT: On July 20, 1994, the Department of Commerce (``the 
Department'') initiated countervailing duty investigations of OCTG from 
Austria and Italy. Respondents in both cases have indicated that they 
will be cooperating in these investigations. In addition, the 
companies, under investigation in both the Austrian and Italian 
investigations have undergone complex restructuring in the past and 
examination of the potential subsidies received by the respondents will 
require extensive analysis. Accordingly, we deem these investigations 
to be extraordinarily complicated. Therefore, pursuant to 19 CFR 
355.15(b)(1994) we are postponing the preliminary determinations in 
these investigations until no later than November 23, 1994.

    Dated: August 17, 1994.
Susan G. Esserman,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
