Kuala Belait Brunei

brunei Billionth Barrel Monument

Kuala Belait is the Birthplace of the nation's wealth. 
Kuala Belait is the name of one the Brunei Darussalam Town.
 Kuala Belait is a town in Brunei located in South-West of Brunei. It is the second largest town in the country, after Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei and functions as the administrative city for the Belait District.
Home of the oil industry.
Brunei's economic heartland.

Behind the glitter of Brunei’s legendary wealth lies the district of Kuala Belait, seat of the nation’s oil and gas industry, producing the country’s main export commodity.
While the economy today is slowly diversifying to include manufacturing, services and tourism, the real “gold” of Brunei flows deep below the ground in Belait.
To see where it all began, visit the town of Seria to see rows of the affectionately-named “nodding donkeys” which pump the lifeblood of Brunei’s economy from the oil-rich earth of Belait.
Seria’s Oil & Gas Discovery Centre provides an up-close view of the inner workings of the nation’s main industry, and the visually striking Billionth Barrel Monument ( become tourist attractions in Brunei)                                               immortalizes the industry’s accomplishments through contemporary architectural forms.
