    Previous studies indicates that the Paleocene-Eocene represented by the N’kapa Formation in Douala onshore basin, has been a target for water supply. However, the hydrogeological research work highlights in this formation important heterogeneity linked to the nature and the geometry of the sedimentary bodies constituted the aquifer system. Taking into account the state of alteration of existing outcrops, this study aims to reconstruct a sedimentological model during the Paleocene-Eocene, using on integration of Gamma Ray (GR) well logs with outcrops data. The research methodology involved sedimentary facies described in outcrops, delineation of lithologies and identification of electrofacies corresponding to depositional environments, from GR reponses. The results obtained from this study show that the lithofacies is dominated by clays, silts and sands/sandstones. The GR log fac.. Read More»
