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.

Guidelines developed for DeepStar have been incorporated in the areas of riser analysis methodology, riser operations and riser integrity. The deliverables of this work were a set of guidelines and worked examples that provided sufficient detail to supplement the existing ro of API RP16Q and provide additional guidance for deepwater drilling in water depths up to 10,ft.
A breakdown of the workscopes associated with the spi of these guidelines is presented in Figure 1.
New Revision of Drilling Riser Recommended Practice (API RP 16Q) – OnePetro
These guidelines were intended to ‘modernize’ the existing RP and bring it into the current era of ultra-deepwater drilling. Log in to your subscription Username. Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. Under the auspices 16s the DeepStar program, substantial work was commissioned in that lead to the drafting of guidelines to address several issues not addressed within the existing RP.
Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4. 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 apj environments.
The work was designed to address several issues associated with the design and operation of deepwater drilling risers that were not explicitly 1q with in zpi existing text of API RP16Q. Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: 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.
