Without absolute certainty, this appears very similar to numerous more obvious pipeline spills in southern Iraq. There appears to be a pipeline running from southeast to northwest a little left of center in this image. It would appear the oil is flowing downhill toward the inlet to the east, with a small amount back tracking above the pipeline to the west.
