Forms

NOPTA has recently reviewed its suite of application forms relating to offshore petroleum titles. The review was aimed at simplifying the forms, making them more user friendly and to provide more guidance to applicants. The review also considered feedback from industry provided in the NOPTA Annual Stakeholder Survey.

NOPTA’s updated Cost Recovery Implementation Statement (CRIS) came into effect on 1 July 2016. Application forms relating to the grant and administration of offshore petroleum and greenhouse gas titles that are affected by the fee changes have been revised to reflect the changes to the Schedule of Fees. For more details on fees and the methods of payment, refer to cost recovery and fees.

Companies wishing to make applications should access the appropriate form directly from the list below to ensure they are using the most up-to-date form. A range of guidelines and fact sheets are also available on NOPTA's website to assist with the making of applications.
