Jerudong is an suburb-urban area in North west of Brunei. Its population is 21,000. Jerudong is located in the South West of Brunei-Muara District It is only 24 km to Bandar Seri Begawan. Jerudong is a well known small market town.
Jerudong is located about 45 miles north-east of the Seria oilfield. Initial drilling searching for oil in Jerudong began at 1914. Five shallow wells were drilled near the crest of the Jerudong anticline.  However the site was abandoned in 1915 due to "sliding formations".
British Malayan Petroleum Company Ltd. (a Dutch Shell subsidiary) renewed drilling in 1940 with a new well designated Jerudong No. 1 which was abandoned as a dry hole at the depth of 7,967 feet. Drilling of a well designated Jerudong No. 2 began on May 5 1955 and reached "oil-bearing formation" in July at a depth between 3,500 and 3,600 feet. As a follow-up to Jerudong No. 2 which discovered oil in 1955, Jerudong No 3 had been spudded in mid-September west of the Jerudong No. 2 site. Jerudong No. 4 depth was 6,070 feet; Jerudong No. 5 reached 8,210 feet; Jerudong No. 6 went to 6,580. Altogether about 28,900 feet were drilled, but very little additional oil was found. 
Jerudong has a cool and warm Tropical climate.
