Compared to 2021, the company has increased royalties payments to the Albanian state by 50% reconfirming its position as one of the biggest taxpayers in the country. Royalties paid by Bankers dominate the customs budget representing around 80% of the total royalties paid in Albania.

Besides, drilling new horizontal wells Bankers has also drafted a new strategy to produce with advanced technologies, such as the thermal method, which increases the energy in the layers and pushes more oil to the surface.
