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

This first substantial revision of API RP 16Q provides the offshore industry with an improved recommended practice qpi has been substantially extended to address issues associated with the design and operation of deepwater marine drilling risers.

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.


A breakdown of the workscopes associated with the drafting of these guidelines is presented in Figure 1. These guidelines were intended to ‘modernize’ the existing RP and bring it into the current era of ultra-deepwater drilling. Offshore Technology Conference Disciplines 4.

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.

Proceedings of an international conference Oceanology: The deliverables of this work were a set of guidelines and worked examples that provided sufficient aoi to supplement the existing text of API RP16Q and provide additional guidance for deepwater drilling in water depths up to 10,ft. 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.
