Those aren't oil tanks. They're irrigation circles.

Sorry. You are right, considering the size of the circles. Anyway, I thought it was an interesting pattern that looked rather like an Irish terrier.

Pretty amazing. Even when you zoom out far enough to see the Red Sea, you can still see these irrigation circles! Question: What is the white line that's running through the area? Is it a big runway?

That's the Kufra oasis, where a huge aquifer was discovered. See:
Did you zoom in and notice the cool hexagons to the west of the irrigation circles?
