Newly renovated & art works - lovely sunset location
Feb 2020
The monument lies next to the sea, with a large car park, interesting art works depicting the history of the Oil & Gas history in Brunei. The art was created by local artists over a 36 hours Live Art weekend in 2019. Lovely spot for watching the sunset over the ocean, seeing rare Pied Oriental Hornbills and photographing the ubiquitous Nodding Donkeys of the Seria oil field.
There are no facilities for food, water or toilets.

Nice location
Jan 2020 • Family
We decided to drive out to Seria from BSB for the day and this site was on the list.
The monument stands at the beach side edge of well maintained gardens and lawn.
There's plenty of parking and access is easy and safe.
The various placques around speak to the historical aspects of Brunei's oil industry.
Worth the visit.

Well worth a visit.

About an hours drive from Bandar_Ser i_Begawan. Lots to see on route. Take the coast route.

Nodding Donkeys By the Sea
Nov 2019 • Solo
The museum in Serbia is closed but the old nodding donkeys by the sea are still hard at work extracting oil.

They are more interesting than the monument.

Very simple and humble place next to their 1st perfuration. The reason of the country's wealth!

Closed for renovations/beautification
Feb 2019 • Family
We went on the 5th of Feb 2019. The walk way towards the monument was covered with canvas. We assume there was some kind of renovation or beautification of the area in progress.

Still, we did manage to see some small, functioning oil pumps in the grass area near the car park, which was fairly interesting.

Interesting but...

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 Remarkable place to visit

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

The best of the Oil industry
Jul 2017 • Friends
Since I work with an oil industry company I really didn't want to miss the opportunity to visit this place when I went to Brunei. This has a lot of history to tell and also a very fancy place to visit. Its near the shore so you'll hear and feel the sea breeze.
Also, there are nodding donkeys around of which some are still working some are not (working but not really in use anymore)
The nodding donkeys are the equipments used before to get the oil from underground.

Whenever you go to Brunei, try to visit this place they are interesting.
