Brunei Darussalam has greatly benefited from more than a century of activity in the energy sector, after the first commercial discoveryof oil in Seria in 1929. Since then, the energy sector has grown to become a core pillar of the wealth of our nation. Brunei Darussalam is also a respected and active member of the regional and international community, a relationship which is driven by the ideals set forth by His Majesty's direction of mutual respect and peaceful co-existence. His Majesty's foresight, wisdom and guidance has ensured that we are able to enjoy a stable, comfortable and peaceful way of life in a nation, which remains on a steady path of economic growth.

The Energy and Industry Department, Prime Minister's Office (EIDPMO) has set bold targets for the energy sector to realise the sector's full potential, conscious that these will require sustained passion and a significant mobilization of efforts. As before, the Government of His Majesty the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Negara Brunei Darussalam through the EIDPMO works hand in hand with its local, regional and international, private and public partners, to ensure that a welcoming and conducive investment environment continues to flourish.
