Billionth Barrel Monument

Brunei Darussalam

Commemorates (you guessed it) the billionth barrel of crude oil produced at the Seria field, a landmark reached in 1991. Copper panels leading up to the monument depict oil-related scenes – one of them features what looks like a giant lizard or possibly an alien. Out to sea, oil rigs producing the sultanate's second billion dot the horizon. Situated on the beach directly in front of Seria town.
