Product information

Product definition

Carbon and alloy steel line pipe originating in or exported from the Republic of Korea, welded or seamless, having a nominal outside diameter from 2.375 inches (60.3 mm) up to and including 24 inches (610 mm) (with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards), including line pipe meeting or supplied to meet any one or several of API 5L, CSA Z245.1, ISO 3183, ASTM A333, ASTM A106, ASTM A53-B or their equivalents, in all grades, whether or not meeting specifications for other end uses (e.g. single-, dual-, or multiple-certified, for use in oil and gas or other applications), and regardless of end finish (plain ends, beveled ends, threaded ends, or threaded and coupled ends), surface finish (coated or uncoated), wall thickness, or length, excluding galvanized line pipe and excluding stainless steel line pipe (containing 10.5 percent or more by weight of chromium), and excluding goods covered by the Canadian International Trade Tribunal’s Finding in Inquiry No. NQ-2012-003.

For greater certainty, the product definition includes unfinished line pipe (including pipe that may or may not already be tested, inspected, and/or certified to line pipe specifications) originating in the Republic of Korea and imported for use in the production or finishing of line pipe meeting final specifications, including outside diameter, grade, wall-thickness, length, end finish, or surface finish; and non-prime and secondary pipes (“limited service products”).


The Canadian International Trade Tribunal (CITT) excludes from its finding welded line pipe having nominal outside diameters from and including 18 inches to 24 inches (610 mm) (with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards), regardless of grade and wall thickness, with a manganese content of no less than 16% by weight, for exclusive use in slurry, tailings, and pressure piping systems in oil sands projects, and marked “Not for CSA Z-662 Applications”. For greater certainty, use in a pipeline meeting CSA Z-662 is not permitted under this exclusion.

Exclusions from the CITT Order of :

  • Submerged arc longitudinal welded line pipe, regardless of grade, having nominal outside diameters from and including 18 inches to 24 inches (610 mm) (with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards), with a wall thickness of 0.500 inches or above (12.700 mm or above), in lengths of 60 feet (18.288 m) with no girth welds, for exclusive use in slurry or tailings piping systems in oils sands projects and marked “For Use as Slurry/Tailings Pipe Only” and having an accompanying mill test report indicating that the pipe is certified for use in slurry or tailings applications only; for greater certainty, use in a pipeline meeting CSA Z-662 or as pressure piping meeting CSA B51 Code is not permitted under this exclusion
  • Submerged arc longitudinal welded line pipe, having nominal outside diameters from and including 18 inches to 24 inches (with all dimensions being plus or minus allowable tolerances contained in the applicable standards), regardless of wall thickness and length, for the exclusive end use of high-temperature steam distribution in Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) or Cyclic Steam Stimulation (CSS) processes, marked “For Steam Distribution Only (in SAGD or CSS End-Uses Only)”, and certified to meet the requirements of CSA Z662.19 Clause 14 and/or Annex I and certified to have proven fatigue/creep test properties as provided in sections I.2.3.2 and I.3.2.1 of CSA Z662.19 as established by means of a creep test of no less than 10,000 hours carried out in accordance with ASTM E139 and having an accompanying mill test report indicating that the pipe is certified for use in high-temperature steam distribution in SAGD or CSS processes only
