Petrochemical Project management continues to develop methods and techniques in response to ever-increasing complexity in delivery of projects. Projects however continue to be described as failing, despite the management. Why should this be if both the factors and the criteria for success are believed to be known? Project management seems keen to adopt new factors to achieve success, such as methodologies, tools, knowledge and skills, but continues to measure or judge project management using tried and failed criteria. This study identifies and assesses the project design practices at Hubei Changjiang Petrochemical Equipment Co., Ltd (CJPCE) presented by Design Management Department (DMD). It assesses the degree of fulfilling the DMD design practices its client’s requirements for their projects. The data of design practices was obtained from literatures and interviews with DMD key personnel such as senior design engineers and specialist design engineers in CJPCE and two Engineers in SABIC, Saudi Arabia Company. This study ends up with some recommendations to improve the current design practices at DMD and to fulfilling the requirements. The recommendations are: (1) introduce Quality Control System edited by third party, (2) introduce a contractibility plan and (3) prepares a feasibility study for proposed projects.
