NOPTA releases new functionality to NEATS Secure Portal

11 October 2022

On 11 October 2022, the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator (NOPTA) released new important functionality enhancements to the ‘Secure Portal’ of the National Electronic Approvals Tracking System (NEATS). The new upgrades allow titleholders and applicants to electronically submit applications and relevant Legislative Forms (2–7) and track the progress of applications made under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006.

The new enhancements are the outcome of collaboration with industry stakeholders and behind the scenes technical work and improvements. The changes are expected to meaningfully reduce the administrative and regulatory burden for titleholders and government by streamlining processes and allowing for easier access to information and tracking of application progress. The application types permissible for online submission will be expanded over the coming months.

NOPTA extends its thanks and appreciation to all industry participants involved in the project. To be part of future NEATS working group processes, please email
