The existence of the kendeng fault passing Surabaya is still the subject of study by the researchers after being declared active by the National Earthquake Centre. The Surabaya was passed by two segments of the Kendeng fault, the Surabaya segment and the Waru segment, the two segments had an earthquake potential of 6.5 M. In the context of disaster mitigation and earthquake analysis, more detailed information is needed relating to the geometry and position of the earthquake source with certainty, so that the identification of earthquake sources is needed in more detail. The magnetotelluric method is one of the geophysical methods that is able to properly identify anomalous objects in tens of kilometers depth. Kendeng fault as a potential earthquake source, one of its segments across Surabaya can be identified using the magnetotelluric method. Megnetolelluric measurements were carried out as many as 15 points in the Surabaya region in order to identify the geometry of the kendeng fault. From the 3D resistivity model, the inversion of magnetotelluric data can be identified well with the Kendeng fault that crosses the city of Surabaya, both the Waru segment and the Surabaya segment at a depth of less than 8 km
