ABSTRACT

Electrical and geological methods are used to conduct petrophysical study in Douala-Cameroon sedimentary basin along Yaounde-Douala National road No. 3. Studies in this region are made of three outcrops, namely: Missolè II located on the sedimentary basin of Douala, Edea and Sikoum which are outcrops of basement rocks that form the eastern boundary of the sedimentary basin of Douala. This study reveals that the rocks of the sedimentary basin of Douala are mainly composed of sandstone and clay. Both basement rocks of Edea and Sikoum are subjected to the same phases of deformation. These phases of deformation give the quartzite a particular structure that greatly influences the resistivity and density of these rocks and give it a planar anisotropy.
