Billionth Barrel Monument, Seria

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Belait District
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.

  • This celebrates the billionth barrel and a country that found its wealth in oil. Belait is the district where oil is extracted so it's worth the 1h trip from Bandar Seri Begawan.  more »

  • You definitely cannot miss this monument to the billionth barrel! It needs to be maintained, but still a great spot to feel into the oil industry!
  • Very good place to relax with South China Sea view side
  • Odd looking monument. The surroundings are extremely clean and well maintained
  • Very good place to relax with South China Sea view side
  • Neat monument, but only takes 5-10 minutes to see. Decent beach behind it if you don't mind a view of oil rigs.
