Strange trace in the desert
Smoke, soot, explosion, oil ? I suppose that the shape is due to the wind direction and the dunes.

Soot from an oil well fire.

Maybe. Could also be an area of exposed black soil that is being blown in the wind. I don't see any roads or infrastructure that would suggest a well site.
