*in millions of tonnes

Answer:

This table shows the information on natural gas consumed and produced by nine different territories in the first year of the 21st century. It can be observed that the USA, the Former Soviet Union, Japan and South Korea utilized the resources more than they exploited them, while the opposite was true in the case of the other five countries.

Most noticeably of all, it is evident that the USA was the largest in both resource consumption and production, the former at almost 589 million tonnes and the latter at 500 million, to the extent where the numbers were five or seven times larger than those for the United Kingdom, which was in second place in the same category. In contrast, there was little or no record in the number of gas production of the Former Soviet Union, South Korea and Japan although their usages were moderate with around 7, 20 and 69 million tonnes respectively.

On the other hand, China and New Zealand were 2 of the nations where the gap between gas usage and exploitation was less than 1 million tonnes, whereas the gap for Australia and the UAE varied between around 6 and 9 million tonnes.

This table shows the information on natural gas consumed and produced by compares nine different territories in terms of their production and consumption of natural gas, in millions of tonnes (MT), in 2001. [ 1] in the first year of the 21st century.

[ 2] It can be observed that Overall the USA, the former Soviet Union, Japan and South Korea utilized the resources used more than they produced, exploited them, while the opposite was true in the case of for the other five countries.

[ ] Most noticeably of all, it is evident that The USA was by far the largest in both resource consumption (589 MT) and production (500 MT). the former at almost 589 million tonnes and the latter at 500 million, to the extent where the numbers were five or seven times larger than those for The United Kingdom, which was in second place, produced 97.1 MT but its consumption was a little less at 86.1 MT. in the same category. In contrast, there was little or no record in the number of gas production of in the former Soviet Union was a tiny 0.4 MT, whereas in both South Korea and Japan is was nil. although their usages Nevertheless, gas consumption in those countries were was moderate, with at around 7, 20 and 69 MT respectively. The other four countries’ production was somewhere in between.

On the other hand, in China and New Zealand were 2 of the nations where the gap between gas usage and exploitation production and consumption was less than 1 MT, whereas the gap for Australia and the UAE varied between around 6 and 9 MT.

[ 1]: Do not complicate things! And in any case, 2001 is the second year of that century.

[ 2]: Avoid fillers. This is a summary task.

You're welcome, but note that "chief" is highly informal and is not appropriate in many contexts (including here).
