Posts Tagged ‘one billion barrel’

I’m undergoing 2-day training at ogdc seria, and i’m staying in the area. The first day i noticed there were a significant number of chinese in buses coming to ogdc,so i asked the tourguide for more information. Apparently these were chinese from guang zho (i don’t know if i spelled that right). I asked the guy at the reception and he tells me that it is quite common for chinese tourists to drop by during festive seasons. My guess is they are visiting thei relatives in brunei n or elsewhere in brunei, n then taking the opportunity to tour around. I asked the tour guide and she informed me that the places of interest were OGDC and the one billion barrel monument.
I ‘ve been there before, but this morning i decided to take a walk to the monument.

Upon arrival u would notice what seems to be a brightly colored part of a train.

Then, you’ll walk through a sort of hall with bronze (i think) etchings of shell’s history in brunei.

Some of these were awe inspiring with i think were depictions of seri begawan. But some had images of strange animals that i guess the company had encountered at sea. My guess it was a dugong.

I never really would have thought that OGDC & The one billion barrel monument were tourist attractions. But it does play a part in keeping brunei’s oil n gas history and science for people to know and remember.  One billion barrel is a lot. 🙂
