This fact comes as a result of increased foreign investment and exploration of oil deposits in the country. The company's largest exporter of oil in place is Bankers Petroleum Albania, which operates in Patos-Marinez that is the main oil area in Albania. The rent tax applied on crude oil is at 10%.

There were sixteen destination countries in the exports of crude oil in the years 2005-2013. Italy is one of the countries where every year significant quantities of crude oil were exported from Albania. In the years 2005-2006, Italy is marked as the only destination of Albanian oil exports. During the years 2005-2013 60% of the total amount of crude oil exports has been exported to Italy. In countries such as Spain and Malta exports up in 2008 were zero.

But starting from 2009 in Spain and 2010 in Malta, exports to these countries have increased. Also, the past three Albania starts to export crude oil to Germany, which is among the top importers of oil in the world. The quantities exported to other countries are small and in periods of 1-2 years.

The annual average price of crude oil in export has been unstable over the years 2005-2011, while the last two years the price appears more stable. The highest annual average export price were recorded in 2013, when a ton of crude oil was sold for 55,490 ALL, while the lowest price was recorded in 2006, when a ton of crude oil was sold for only 22,730 ALL.

In general, the average annual price of crude oil in export has had no differences between countries. But what can be noticed is the fact that in countries such as Ireland, Poland, Turkey where we have exported small quantities of crude oil, in one or two years, the exports price in these countries is almost double the annual average price in the export of that year.
