Billionth Barrel Monument, Seria
(3.3/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It is actually not much to see. The monument might seem impressive just because there is nothing around it and in general there are not many great attractions in Brunei. If you are close to the area, ...  more »
  • Brunei was such a pleasant country to visit with a number of really interesting attractions spread out across the country, from Muara in the north to Seria in the south. Once you've seen the rainfores...  more »
  • Gets the landscape and the sea air and the surrounding genetic concerns, sparing the monumental scenery. Colorful, but a beautiful night scenery lighting in Zanjan LY fantastic.

  • Just a monument, nothing special really. If you pass by, check it out. Don't drive all the way to see the damn thing.
  • Last seen creature who came from the belait teapot roundabout.
  • From here you can see tankers loading at highseas.
  • Great for picture taking.
  • 可以見到石油田的機器,了解抽石油的過程。
