Billionth Barrel Monument
|Material||Concrete and gold|
The monument was built in 1991. It was commemorated by Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah on 18 July 1991. The monument commemorates the production of the billionth barrel of oil produced in the onshore oil field in Seria.
The monument is located near the S-1, the first well discovered in Seria Oil Field. The well was discovered by Brunei Shell Petroleum in 1929. The monument is located 38 meters from S-1, which is now located on the beach. The only marker that remains of S-1 is a corroded steel bar.
On an elevated square, there are five pipes that form an arch structure that is crowned by a gilded coat of arms. The five pipes are reminiscent of the Five Pillars of Islam and the floor tiles are designed according to Islamic models.
The monument was designed by a local architect.
