Abstract : The most widely used methods of measuring the electrical resistivity of rock samples are analyzed in detail. Results are reported of comparative measurements made on 19 samples of limestone from boreholes in oil fields of the azov salient using different laboratory set-ups. It is concluded that an AC two electrode set-up, with complex comparative shoulder for compensating the capacitance of the resistivity components of the sample, is the best of present methods of measuring resistivity of rock samples in the laboratory.
