Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
Item 3.02 Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities.

     On January 6, 2006 and January 9, 2006, China Natural Gas, Inc. (the
"Company"), entered into securities purchase agreements with four accredited
investors and completed the sale of $5,380,000 of units. The units contained an
aggregate of 1,921,428 shares of common stock and 523,055 common stock purchase
warrants. Each common stock purchase warrant is exercisable for a period of
three years at an exercise price of $3.60 per share. Pursuant to the terms of
the warrant, each investor has contractually agreed to restrict its ability to
exercise the warrants to an amount which would not exceed the difference between
the number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by the holder or
issuable upon exercise of the warrant held by such holder and 9.9% of the
outstanding shares of common stock of the Company. New York Global Securities
acted as the placement agent of the transaction.

     The Company is obligated to file a registration statement registering the
resale of shares of the Company's common stock and those issuable upon exercise
of the warrants. If the registration statement is not filed within 45 days from
the date of investment, or declared effective within 90 days thereafter (135
days if the registration statement receives a full review by the SEC), or if the
registration is suspended other than as permitted in the registration rights
agreement between the Company and the investors, the Company is obligated to pay
the investors certain fees in the amount of 1% of the aggregate amount invested,
per month, and the obligations may be deemed to be in default.

     In connection with the offering, the Company paid a placement fee of 10% of
the proceeds in cash, together with non-accountable expenses in the amount of 3%
of the proceeds, in cash. In addition, the placement agent was issued warrants
to purchase 298,888 shares of common stock on the same terms and conditions as
the investors.
