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 deepwater environments. Under the auspices of 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.
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. Guidelines developed for DeepStar have been incorporated in the areas of riser analysis methodology, riser operations and riser integrity. 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.
Additional guidelines have been included which relate to operational procedures and riser integrity issues and these are described by the paper. 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.
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. 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.
