Endorrheic basin with large untapped gas and oil reserves . Also lots of ruins .
At this location
The Takla Makan Desert is also rich in natural resources, buried under it vast expanse are resources such as groundwater, oil and oil gas. During the oilfields' opening up, people encountered the problems of transportation. Thus the idea of building a highway came to people's mind. In the year 1995, a desert-road of 522 kilometers (more than 324 miles) was completed and opened to traffic. Construction work has commenced on the second desert-road in June, 2005 and it is to be completed by the end of 2007.
We strongly believe as time goes on, people will be more capable of conquering deserts and at the same time, make full uses of its rich natural resources for the benefit of humanity.
The ruins existed when it was an inland sea . Notice the slipway . The city was above the waterline to discourage casual pirates (common in bronze age societies . Ageek , tech thing to do with costs of bronze )
This was a heavily populated , prosperous city .
Notice the rich suburbs towards the SSE .
As it is an endorrheic basin , there are rich gas , maybe oil deposits .

General location :
More precisely ,
This was rip-roaring city in its day . Something like the Magadigadi port cities .
Inland sea-cities always has an extra zip .
You should have seen the Western Interior Seaway in its heyday .
(also called the Cretaceous Seaway, the Niobraran Sea, and the North American Inland Sea) was a large inland sea that existed during the mid- to late Cretaceous period as well as the very early Paleogene, splitting the continent of North America into two landmasses, Laramidia to the west and Appalachia to the east. The ancient sea stretched from the Gulf of Mexico and through the middle of the modern-day countries of the United States and Canada, meeting with the Arctic Ocean to the north. At its largest, it was 2,500 feet (760 m) deep, 600 miles (970 km) wide and over 2,000 miles (3,200 km) long.
