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 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 some of the information held within the Titles Register (NEATS is not the official Titles Register. Please contact to request to search the titles register) and application tracking. Titleholders also have access to an Industry Portal for a consolidated view of the titles in which they participate and make or advise of fee payments.

If you are interested in additional information from NEATS there are a number of standard reports on the NOPTA website (see NEATS reporting).

For further information on the Industry Portal, including how to access and register to the Industry Portal, see NEATS Industry Portal guidance.

Industry Portal Upgrades

Based on feedback from NOPTA’s biannual stakeholder survey, and to align with NOPTA’s Strategic Plan priority of Integrating Data and Technology, NOPTA is currently preparing to make enhancements to the NEATS industry portal to streamline interactions with NOPTA.

Key features being looked at included:

  • Single point of entry for NOPTA related activities including payments and applications (reporting and data submissions are planned for a future phase)
  • Enhanced user experience, with the ability for NOPTA and titleholders to communicate through the portal
  • Digital signature technology.

NOPTA has created various user groups to help advise on functionality requirements for the portal and to assist with testing and training.
