This study was carried out using API recommended practice 13B-2 in a cement laboratory, and the essence was to compare the performance of the synthesized cement retarder and the imported retarder at various concentrations of 0.01gal/sk, 0.04 gal/sk, 0.07 gal/sk and 0.10 gal/sk on the setting time of the cement slurry. The test results obtained at various concentrations showed that thickening time at 100BC was 3:06 hrs, 4:06 hrs, 5:28 hrs 8:18 hrs while the imported retarder thickening time was as follows: 4:02 hrs, 5:13hrs, 6:53 hrs, 9:20 hrs for the respective increase in concentration. The study, therefore, shows that synthesized cement retarder can compare favorably with the imported cement retarder.
