    Abstract: In 2012, Kenya has discovered oil deposits that have placed it among the global oil exporters. Huge expectations from this discovery among all the stakeholders have ignited unmatched interest both locally and internationally. The expected socio-economic changes for the nation, however, need to be surgically addressed and assessed. This paper, there... Show More

    Abstract: While waiting on cementing, the cement slurry weight loss can easily lead to early annular gas channeling and sustained casing pressure. Studying the weight loss process is an important means for reducing gas channeling risk. Due to complex physical and chemical changes during cement hydration process, conventional pressure reduction prediction mod... Show More
