Abstract [en]

The main material with economic potential in the plain is the clay. The clay is used for brick production; either with modernized technology or primitive industry. It is also used for cement industry. The creeping sand dunes have decreasing the potentiality of the clay for both uses. Salt is another economic material which is produced from Smawa saltern and other small primitive salt basins. The subsurface oil fields in the plain remain as the main source with economic potential.
