Combined with the nearby Billionth Barrel Monument this place must be seen to believed. Oil and gas extraction are complicated businesses; most of us couldn't live a day without the petroleum products that fuel our lives, yet we understand precious little about the extraction and refining process. Fortunately this museum exists to shed light on the subject. I arrived during... More

OGDC is an education centre for visitors (locals or tourists) to understand and appreciate the oil and gas industry which has been the strong supporter of Brunei Darussalam’s economy. Normally this area is also a jogging spot (from here to Billionth Barrel and vice versa) and has playground for kids. Not surprisingly, there is a Pokestop and Gym here which... More

I went here with my two small nephews as their father works in the industry. It's nice since they have good background information but also do a lot for the kids with interactive sciency games. We wanted to go for an hour but ended up staying for two. I would recommend it!

Where is the landmark carved buildings that once was at OGDC? 1 Pokestop and 1 Gym here. Great place for jogging, playing pokemon, family to spend time together and education to oil and gas production. Its got a jogging path from OGDC to Billionth Barrel. Its a great place to spend time with family and friends for leisure, workout;etc

Think the entrance fee is too high for the exhibition, the gadgets in the adjorning rooms were more for children than adults. I consider this wasted money. Also Brunei should also keep their monuments in order the millionth dollar varrel monument looks trashy
