It is one of two surveys that the Adelaide oiler is hoping to shoot later this year.
 
Santos hopes to complete Fishburn by August 1, outside the Northern Prawn Fishery season.
 
Last week the company received its second rejection of the larger Bethany 3D seismic survey over NT/P85 and NT/P82 to the east, in the Bonaparte Gulf.
 
The survey aims to shoot 4190sq.km, and ideally will follow Fishburn. 
 
Santos owns 100% of WA-459-P, shares NT/P85 with Origin Energy, while Magellan Petroleum holds 100% of NT/P82
 
It had hoped to complete the Bethany survey, south of the Blackwood, Heron, Caldita and Evans Shoal gas discoveries.
