About us

History through
the Years

At Bankers, we work hard to position ourselves as the partner of choice for Albania to operate the Country’s largest resource. Bankers has been able to use its expertise to produce more today than in the over 85 year history of the field. Over the past ten years Bankers has grown to be the largest foreign direct investor, the largest tax payer in Albania, and one of the largest employers. We have invested over $2 billion in Albania, more than doubled our reserves, and grown production to a peak of over 20,000 bopd prior to the fall in oil prices.
