Since 2015, China has put forward the "One Belt, One Road" initiative, which further strengthened the world's economic, trade, and cultural exchanges at a deeper level. The oil and gas resources trade occupies an important position in today's world trade. The training of translation talents should be also developed along with the development of the oil industry. So it is of great significance to understand the training of MTI students from Chinese petroleum universities under the new situation. This paper conducted research and analysis on the graduation thesis of MTI in Chinese petroleum universities in recent years. Given the problems that exist in the graduation thesis of MTI in petroleum universities such as limited selection of translation theories, few genre of thesis, non-market-oriented source text selection and corresponding suggestions such as the introduction of new theories and genres of graduation thesis, more concern on the translation market are also put forward.
