Monument Landmark
At Billionth Barrel Monument thick, grey curved pillars symbolize crude oil flowing from beneath the earth. The monument, located on a beach, commemorates the billionth barrel of oil produced in the on-shore field, not far from where the first well was discovered here in 1929. A working nodding donkey nearby and oil rigs out at sea highlight the presence of oil here. Observe the monument from a distance; it's most striking at sunrise or sunset. Bring food with you, as you will find no food stalls on site.
