I've been checking out Siberia and found a perculiar pattern of man made patches all over the place. Does anyone know waht they are?

That's an oil field. There is a tank farm and/or refinery in the hi-res patch to the north. The ends of the roads are the well sites, including the ones in the lakes. (much easier to drill from a man-made island than thru water.)
