The article displays information about the geological structure of the oil and gas fields of the Republic of CГґte-d'Ivoire, which are summarized on the gravity and magnetic maps of the country's sedimentary basin. The relation between the deposit type and gravity and magnetic anomalies over the deposits is shown. Geophysical surveys, one of the first steps in the search for hydrocarbons, provide us with geological characteristics of deposits and blocks of the sedimentary basin of CГґte-d'Ivoire, which gives a general idea of the possibilities of new discoveries. Considering the latest discovery this summer in the Ivory Coast sedimentary basin, which has significantly propelled the country into the ranks of oil and gas producers, this study is very important and provides accurate information to start hydrocarbon research in addition to basic information.

Key words: Republic of C, geology, oil basin, deposits, gravity anomaly
