NEATS info

The National Electronic Approvals Tracking System (NEATS) provides access to publicly available information concerning offshore petroleum titles and applications. NEATS has been designed with the end user in mind and NOPTA hopes that users will find NEATS easy to navigate between the different features.

NEATS aims to deliver a new level of transparency to both industry and the public, as well as a single source of up to date information on offshore petroleum titles and applications.

NEATS includes a Public Portal which provides access to information held within the title register and application tracking. Titleholders also have access to an Industry Portal for a consolidated view of the titles in which they participate and the lodgment of selected applications and make or advise of fee payments. NOPTA intends to add to the functionality available to industry over time.

Access NEATS at neats.nopta.gov.au.
