A breakdown of the workscopes associated with the drafting of these guidelines is presented in Figure 1.

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.
Guidelines developed for DeepStar have been incorporated in the areas of riser analysis methodology, riser operations and riser integrity.
These guidelines were intended to ‘modernize’ the existing RP and bring it into the current era of ultra-deepwater drilling. 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.
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.
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.
This paper describes the contents of the revised standard, in terms of the substantive changes appi the 1st edition and the significant rpp drafted to broaden its applicability to deepwater drilling risers.

New Revision of Drilling Riser Recommended Practice (API RP 16Q) – OnePetro
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 apu operational procedures and riser integrity issues and these are described by the paper.
