Overview (Program Summary)

This two-part Masterclass in Curtin Law School’s Energy Governance series unravels the laws that regulate mining and petroleum titles in Western Australia, and provides a roadmap for dealing with some common legal disputes.

It’s ideal for in house lawyers, commercial analysts and professionals within the resources and oil and gas sectors who are exposed to title transfers.

The first session focuses on the Mining Act 1978 (WA), Mining Regulations 1981 (WA), and the operations of the Warden’s Court. You’ll learn how parties register and transfer mining titles, and see how native title interests are engaged.

In the second session, you’ll explore the application of the Offshore Greenhouse and Gas Storage Act 2006 (Cth) (OPGGSA), Offshore Petroleum (Royalty) Act 2006 (Cth), and Offshore Greenhouse and Gas Storage Act (Regulatory Levies) Act 2003 (Cth), and operation of the National Offshore Petroleum Titles Administrator (NOPTA).
