The deliverables of this work were a set of guidelines and worked examples 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. With that evolution comes the need to 16 the way we design and operate such risers to ensure the safety and integrity of drilling risers designed and operated in deepwater environments.

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.


This paper describes the contents of the revised standard, in gp of the substantive changes from the 1st edition xpi the significant additions drafted to broaden its applicability to deepwater drilling risers.

New Revision of Drilling Riser Recommended Practice (API RP 16Q) – OnePetro

Guidelines developed for DeepStar have been incorporated in the areas of riser analysis methodology, riser operations and riser integrity.

Additional guidelines have been included which relate to operational procedures and riser integrity issues and these are described by the paper. These guidelines were intended to ‘modernize’ the existing RP and bring it into the current era of ultra-deepwater drilling.

Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. This first substantial revision of API RP 16Q provides the a;i industry with an improved recommended practice that has been substantially extended to address issues associated with the design and operation of deepwater marine drilling risers.

Under the auspices of the DeepStar program, substantial work was commissioned in that lead to aapi drafting of guidelines to address several issues not addressed within the existing RP. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ The 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.
