CANADA BORDER SERVICES AGENCY

SPECIAL IMPORT MEASURES ACT

Certain pup joints — Decisions

On March 12, 2012, the President of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) made a final determination of dumping and a final determination of subsidizing, pursuant to paragraph 41(1)(a) of the Special Import Measures Act (SIMA), in respect of oil country tubular goods pup joints, made of carbon or alloy steel, welded or seamless, heat-treated or not heat-treated, regardless of end finish, having an outside diameter from 2 3/8 inches to 4 1/2 inches (60.3 mm to 114.3 mm), in all grades, in lengths from 2 feet to 12 feet (61 cm to 366 cm) originating in or exported from the People’s Republic of China.

The goods in question are usually classified under the following Harmonized System classification numbers:

7304.29.00.51 7304.29.00.59 7304.29.00.61

7304.29.00.69 7304.29.00.71 7304.29.00.79

The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (Tribunal) is continuing its inquiry into the question of injury to the domestic industry and will make an order or finding by April 10, 2012. Provisional duties will continue to apply until this date.

If the Tribunal finds that the dumping and/or subsidizing have caused injury or are threatening to cause injury, future imports of subject goods will be subject to anti-dumping duty equal to the margin of dumping and/or countervailing duty equal to the amount of subsidy on the goods. In that event, the importer in Canada shall pay all such duties. The Customs Act applies, with any modifications that the circumstances require, with respect to the accounting and payment of anti-dumping and countervailing duty.

Information

The Statement of Reasons regarding this decision will be issued within 15 days following the decision and will be available on the CBSA’s Web site at www.cbsa-asfc.gc.ca/sima-lmsi or by contacting Andrew Manera at 613-946-2052, or by fax at 613-948-4844.

CANADA-NEWFOUNDLAND AND LABRADOR OFFSHORE PETROLEUM BOARD

CANADA-NEWFOUNDLAND ATLANTIC ACCORD IMPLEMENTATION ACT

Call for Bids No. NL12-01 (Area “C” — Laurentian Subbasin)

The Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Offshore Petroleum Board hereby gives notice of a call for the submission of bids in respect of six parcels in the Newfoundland and Labrador offshore area.

This notice of Call for Bids No. NL12-01 is made pursuant and subject to the Canada-Newfoundland Atlantic Accord Implementation Act, S.C. 1987, c. 3, and the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Atlantic Accord Implementation Newfoundland and Labrador Act, R.S.N.L. 1990, c. C-2.

The following is a summary of Call for Bids No. NL12-01:

(i) The Board hereby wishes to inform prospective bidders for parcels NL12-01-01, NL12-01-02 and NL12-01-04 that it has been advised by the Government of Canada that, on May 17, 2005, the Government of Canada and the Government of the French Republic signed the Agreement between the Government of Canada and the Government of the French Republic relating to the Exploration and Exploitation of Transboundary Hydrocarbon Fields (the Agreement). The Agreement provides a framework for the conservation and management of hydrocarbon resources in fields straddling the maritime boundary between the two countries. The Agreement will enter into force on the date on which the Government of Canada and the Government of the French Republic have informed each other that all necessary internal requirements have been fulfilled. While France has ratified the Agreement, Canada is putting in place the domestic arrangements to allow it to proceed with its ratification process.

As a result, the Government of Canada has advised the Board, and the Board wishes to notify prospective bidders, that if the Agreement enters into force prior to or during the term of a licence covering any of the above-mentioned parcels, this necessarily will result in the application of additional terms and conditions for those parcels, through legislation, regulations, amendments to licences or otherwise, in order to ensure compliance with the Agreement.

The Board recommends to prospective bidders that they consult the text of the Agreement, which is available from the Board upon request.

(ii) Sealed bids will be received by the Board prior to the time of closing of this call for bids. This call for bids will close at 4:00 p.m., Newfoundland Standard Time, on November 1, 2012, except as specifically provided for in Call for Bids No. NL12-01.

(iii) All bids must be submitted in accordance with the terms and conditions of Call for Bids No. NL12-01.

(iv) The parcels are located offshore Newfoundland and Labrador and are described in Schedule I. An Exploration Licence may be issued for each parcel.

(v) For the purpose of selecting a bid, the sole criterion to be used will be the total amount of money the bidder commits to expend on exploration on the parcel within Period I (“Work Expenditure Bid”).

(vi) A minimum bid of $1,000,000 will be required for each parcel in Area “C” — Laurentian Subbasin.

(vii) For each parcel, the Work Expenditure Bid must be accompanied by a bank draft or certified cheque in the amount of $10,000 (“Bid Deposit”) made payable to the Receiver General. Furthermore, the successful bidder will be required to provide, within 15 days of notification of being the successful bidder, a promissory note in the amount of 25% of the Work Expenditure Bid (“Security Deposit”). A credit against the Security Deposit will be made on the basis of 25% of allowable expenditures as described in the Exploration Licence (“Allowable Expenditures”).

(viii) The successful bidder will receive a refund, without interest, of the Bid Deposit when the Security Deposit is posted within 15 days. Failure to post the Security Deposit within 15 days will result in forfeiture of the Bid Deposit and disqualification of the bid.

Following the announcement of the bid results, the Bid Deposits of unsuccessful bidders will be returned, without interest, as soon as possible.

(ix) The interest owner may at its option extend Period I from six years to seven years by providing to the Board before the end of the sixth year of Period I either

  1. (a) a description of 50% contiguous Licence Lands to be surrendered together with a refundable drilling deposit of $1,000,000, or

  2. (b) a $5,000,000 refundable drilling deposit.

A drilling deposit posted pursuant to paragraph (a) or (b) above will be refunded in full if the Exploration Licence is validated for Period II by the drilling of a well on that Exploration Licence. No interest will be paid on the drilling deposit.

If a validation well is not drilled, the drilling deposit will be forfeited to the Receiver General for Canada upon termination of the Exploration Licence at the end of Period I. Allowable Expenditures cannot be applied against the drilling deposit.

(x) For each parcel, the licence requirement will be one well to be commenced within Period I and diligently pursued thereafter.

(xi) For each parcel, rentals will be applicable only in Period II at the following rates:

1st year — $5.00 per hectare

2nd year — $7.50 per hectare

3rd year — $10.00 per hectare

When an Exploration Licence continues in force beyond Period II, rentals will be payable at the rates applicable during the last year of Period II.

Rentals will be payable annually, in advance, and are to be submitted by cheque payable to the Receiver General, except for rentals applicable to an Exploration Licence continuing beyond Period II, which will be payable monthly, in advance, at the rate of one-twelfth (1/12) of the applicable annual rates.

Rentals will be refunded annually, to a maximum of 100% of the rentals paid in that year, on the basis of a dollar refund for each dollar of Allowable Expenditures for that year.

Carry-forward provisions to reduce rentals otherwise payable in ensuing rental years will apply.

Rentals will apply to lands subject to a declaration of significant discovery during the term of the Exploration Licence at the rates and levels of refundability specified above.

(xii) An Allowable Expenditure schedule will have application throughout Period I of the Exploration Licence. The rates of Allowable Expenditures will be reviewed, and may be amended, at the expiration of Period I.

(xiii) Rentals (“Significant Discovery Licence”)

Each Significant Discovery Licence shall be subject to the following rental regime after the expiration of the term of the Exploration Licence of origin:

  1. (a) Rentals on Significant Discovery Licences, following the expiry date of the Exploration Licence, shall be at the following base rates:

  2. Year 1 to 5 — $0.00 per hectare

  4. Year 11 to 15 — $200.00 per hectare
  5. Year 16 to 20 — $800.00 per hectare

  6. The rental rates applicable to any Significant Discovery Licence resulting from Call for Bids No. NL12-01 will be payable in constant (inflation adjusted) 2013 dollars.

  7. (b) Rental rates of $800.00 will increase by $100.00 for each year beyond year 20, and will be payable in constant (inflation adjusted) 2013 dollars until the Significant Discovery Licence is relinquished or converted to a Production Licence. For greater certainty, the interest owner may relinquish lands to reduce future rental payments.

  8. (c) There shall be no carry forward of excess allowable expenditures from Exploration Licences.

  9. (d) Rentals are to be submitted by bank draft or certified cheque payable to the Receiver General for Canada.

  10. (e) For greater certainty, rentals shall be calculated on the basis of the total hectarage of lands held as part of the Significant Discovery Licence, as of the anniversary date.

  11. (f) Rentals will be refunded annually, to a maximum of one hundred percent (100%) of the rentals paid in that year, on the basis of a dollar refund for each dollar of allowable expenditures for that year.

(xiv) A successful bidder will be required to comply with the Canada-Newfoundland and Labrador Benefits procurement, employment and reporting procedures as established by the Board in its Exploration Benefits Plan Guidelines.

(xv) Each parcel will be subject to the payment of issuance fees and Environmental Studies Research Fund levies.

(xvi) The Board is not obliged to accept any bid or issue any interest as a result of this call for bids.

(xvii) Any licence that may be issued shall be in the form of the exploration licence attached to Call for Bids No. NL12-01.
