Land of Black Gold (1991)

All over the country motor vehicle engines are spontaneously exploding. The cause for this is narrowed down to the type of petrol used in the cars which had been tampered with in order to cause such an explosion. As a result, most forms of transportation from cars to airplanes are reducing their fuel usage, thus affecting the economy. Additionally, political pressures are intensifying, placing the world on the brink of war, and Captain Haddock is mobilized in expectance of such an outbreak of hostilities. After following different leads, Tintin and Thomson and Thompson set off for Khemed on board a petrol tanker. Upon their arrival, the three are framed and arrested by local police.
