ABSTRACT This paper introduces the source and utility circumstance of natural gas in China. The utility cir-cumstance of natural gas is discussed in detail, such as, natural gas as feedstock is produced to acetylene; natural gas is used to cut metal; natural gas is applied to generate ethylene; natural gas instead of heavy oil is fired to produce chromium trioxide. In so doing, the energy demand of China will be better met with least damage to the environment. According to the full utility of natural gas sources, their good economic and social benefits are obtained.
