Progress towards a National Offshore Petroleum Information Management System (NOPIMS)

Under the NOPDCR banner, NOPTA, Geoscience Australia and GSWA have been cooperating on the development of an Australia-wide data discovery and delivery system for offshore wells and survey activities. Known as NOPIMS, the system is based upon an enhanced version of WA’s WAPIMS technology and should become available for use during the second half of 2014.

Although data coverage and completeness will be initially limited, NOPIMS will be progressively populated with reports and data for open-file activities post 1 January 2012, with older data coming on stream towards the end of 2014 and beyond.

More information on NOPIMS will be provided as it becomes available.
