Nabors Drilling USA, Inc., East Texas/North Louisiana District, 
Headquartered in Kilgore, TX, Including Bayard Drilling Technologies; 
Amended Certification Regarding Eligibility To Apply for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    In accordance with Section 223 of the Trade Act of 1974 (19 USC 
2273) the Department of Labor issued a Certification of Eligibility to 
Apply for Worker Adjustment Assistance on December 28, 1998, applicable 
to workers of Nabors USA, Inc., East Texas/North Louisiana District, 
headquarters in Kilgore, Texas operating at various locations in Texas 
and Louisiana. The notice was published in the Federal Register on 
January 25, 1999 (64 FR 3721).
    At the request of the company, the Department reviewed the 
certification for workers of the subject firm. New findings show that 
Nabors Drilling USA purchased Bayard Drilling Technologies in April, 
1999. New information show that some workers separated from employment 
at Nabors Drilling USA had their wages reported under a separate 
unemployment insurance (UI) tax account for Bayard Drilling 
Technologies, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The workers provide drilling 
services related to the exploration and production of crude oil and 
natural gas.
    Based on these findings, the Department is amending the 
certification to include workers of Bayard Drilling Technologies.
    The intent of the Department's certification is to include all 
workers of Nabor Drilling USA, Inc. adversely affected by increased 
imports.
    The amended notice applicable to TA-W-35,200 is hereby issued as 
follows:

    All workers of East Texas/North Louisiana District of Nabors 
Drilling USA, Inc., headquartered in Kilgore, Texas (TA-W-35,200), 
including Bayard Drilling Technologies operating at various 
locations in Texas (TA-W-35,200A), Louisiana TA-W-35,200B) and 
Oklahoma (TA-W-35,200D) who became totally or partially separated 
from employment on or after October 22, 1997 through December 28, 
2000 are eligible to apply for adjustment assistance under Section 
223 of the Trade Act of 1974.
