Lodge an application

Depending on the role allocated, you will have access to create, edit and/or lodge certain application types.

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 applications 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 applications 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.

At this stage the Industry Portal only permits the lodgement of the following application types.

Applications for all title types

Three applications can be lodged for all title types via the Industry Portal:

  • application for approval and registration of transfer of title
  • application for approval and registration of dealing
  • application for approval and registration of change in name of company.

Applications for petroleum exploration permits

  • application for suspension of condition(s) of title
