Nov 17, 2011 -- The U.S. Commerce Department said it began antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of steel pipe from India, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam at the request of companies including U.S. Steel Corp.

The U.S. International Trade Commission is scheduled to make its preliminary determination in the probe, targeting imports of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe, by Dec. 12, the department said today in an e-mailed statement.

Imports of the steel pipes totaled about $64.9 million from India last year, $27.5 million from Vietnam, $26.3 million from the UAE and $24.2 million from Oman, according to the Commerce Department.

U.S. Steel was joined by Tyco International Ltd. (TYC)’s Allied Tube and Conduit, JMC Steel Group and Wheatland Tube Co. in filing a complaint about the anti-competitive practices, according to the department’s statement.
