Forms & submission addresses

Application forms and all data submissions (eg petroleum mining sample submissions, well and survey reports) can be submitted to NOPTA electronically. All submission addresses can be found on the submission addresses page.

The NEATS Industry Portal may be used as an alternative form of lodgment. Generally, applications submitted electronically through the NEATS Industry Portal do not require a hard copy to also be submitted, except in the following circumstances:

  • Transfer application where the original (plus copy) instrument of transfer (in the prescribed form), executed by all parties to the transfer must be sent to NOPTA
  • Dealing application where the original (plus copy) instrument evidencing the dealing and supplementary instrument (if applicable) must be sent to NOPTA.

Please note: Acreage Release (Work-bid Exploration Permits and Cash-bid Exploration Permits) are to be submitted in the approved form as outlined in the relevant Gazette Notice.
