CALGARY, Sept. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Bankers Petroleum Ltd. (the "Company")
announces that a claim has been filed in the Commercial Court of England and
Wales against the Company's subsidiary Bankers Petroleum Albania Ltd. ("BPAL")
by BP Oil International Ltd. ("BPO") in connection with a dispute between BPAL
and BPO over the termination by BPAL of a crude oil sales contract between
BPAL and BPO (the "Contract").

BPO has alleged that  BPAL wrongfully terminated the  Contract and is  seeking 
damages of approximately US$ 54 million.

The Company and BPAL believe  that BPAL was fully  within its legal rights  to 
terminate the Contract,  that BPO's claim  is without merit  and that, in  any 
event, BPO's estimate  of damages  is exaggerated. The  Company intends  that 
BPAL will vigorously defend the claim.
