This is an interesting monument but looking very tired. Great views along the beach. More interpretation would be good for some background to the oil industry. Would have thought Shell Brunei could afford a bit of maintenance and upgrading!

A great monument and an historic place to visit. There is a car park nearby. There are no food stalls next to it however Seria town is only a stone throw away.

This attraction is at the beach & it’s about Oil. Since they found oil in Seria so this landmark is a way to let tourists know about our small oil country

It's one of the best spots if you plan to chill out after a long day or even for some little brisk walk to end your day.

This landmark is located at Seria, could be an hour travel from city center. Easy to find this beautiful piece of architecture representing oil refinery in the country

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.

It is worthy to vizit this statue. Exactly 26 years ago they proclaimed their Billionth barrel Crude oil production.

It is a monument to commemorate the production of billion barrels of oil in Brunei. Being a country with most of the revenue being generated from oil, it is something which people may relate to. However, it doesn't look like it is being maintained well....More
