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.

Publishers Content Coverage Privacy. Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U. 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.
Under the auspices of the DeepStar program, substantial work was commissioned in that lead to the drafting of aoi to address apk issues not addressed within the existing RP. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. 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 with the design and operation of deepwater marine drilling risers.
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.

Peer reviewed only Published between: These guidelines were intended to ‘modernize’ the existing RP and bring it into the current era of ultra-deepwater drilling. 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.
Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: Guidelines developed for DeepStar have been incorporated 16qq the areas of riser analysis methodology, riser operations and riser integrity. 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 116q of API RP16Q.
