Abstract Since the Recommended Practice for Design, Selection, Operation and Maintenance of Marine Drilling Riser Systems (API RP 16Q) was first issued in. API 16Q provides requirements for the design, selection, operation, and maintenance of typical marine riser systems for floating drilling.

Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. These guidelines were intended to ‘modernize’ the existing RP and bring it into the current era of ultra-deepwater drilling.
Several additions to the existing RP16Q text cover analysis methodology associated with soil structure modelling, coupled analysis, drift-off analysis, weak point analysis and other issues. 16w work was designed to address several issues associated with the design and operation of deepwater drilling risers that were not explicitly dealt with in the existing text of API RP16Q.

The deliverables of this work were a set of guidelines and worked apii that provided sufficient detail to supplement the existing text of API RP16Q and provide additional guidance for deepwater drilling in water depths up to 10,ft. This paper describes the contents of the revised standard, in terms of the substantive changes from the 1st edition and the significant additions drafted to broaden its applicability to deepwater drilling risers.
A breakdown of the workscopes associated with the drafting of these guidelines is presented in Figure 1.
New Revision of Drilling Riser Recommended Practice (API RP 16Q) – OnePetro
Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: This first substantial revision of API RP 16Q provides the offshore industry with an improved recommended practice that has been substantially extended to address issues associated xpi the design and operation of deepwater marine drilling risers. Publishers Content Coverage Privacy.
Under the auspices of the DeepStar program, substantial work was commissioned in that lead to the drafting of guidelines to spi several issues not addressed within the existing RP. Peer reviewed only Published between: Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U.
Guidelines developed for DeepStar have been incorporated in the areas of riser analysis methodology, riser operations and riser integrity. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Additional guidelines have been included which relate to operational procedures and riser integrity issues and these are described by the paper.
With that evolution comes the need to reassess the way we design and operate such risers to ensure the safety and integrity of drilling risers designed and operated in deepwater environments.
