Malacca Straits, Asia equivalent to the Straits of Hormuz. A strategic trade choke points for several Asian countries including China.
The straits run along the coastlines of Indonesia and Malaysia with Singapore in the middle. China's major trade route to Africa and the west makes it of high trade and strategic importance. China has for decades claim reef, shoals and uninhabitable island as their territory and by threaten or actual force taken them. The island building campaign first stated as just claiming lost Chinese territories has become a military base initiative to levy control over the South China Sea of which the western part leads to the Malacca Strait.
The Malacca straits is located on the western part of the South China Sea which connects it to the Indian Ocean near the Bay of Bengal which is controlled by India. Australia being a large supplier of LNG to India also though not a strategic see value in not allowing China by any means control it.

Natuna island would be a huge advantage for China in not only controlling the western part of the SCS but also that of the Malacca Strait.
Malaysia and Singapore are continuously busy with increase pirate activity of whom seem to have an endless supply chain.
China has increased it harassment of other countries military forces as they try to surveil the SCS in further intimidation or hiding what they are up to in the Western part of the SCS.
