BILLIONTH BARREL MONUMENT - BELAIT

 

 

BRUNEI DARUSSALAM

 

 

 

Commissioned by Brunei Shell Petroleum and designed by a local architect, the Billionth Barrel Monument commemorates the production of the billionth barrel of oil by the Seria oilfield. It is located close to the seawell, near the site 'S-1', the first well dug almost 70 years ago.

 

The approach to the monument is through an arched entrance and a row of trees on either side. The arches serve to remind visitors that Brunei is an Islamic country and the floor is tiled in an Islamic pattern. The monument is a mere 5-minute drive from the Seria town centre.
