Nabucco reached an agreement about the Shah Deniz field with SOCAR ,BP, Statoil and Total on "joint funding of the development costs of the Nabucco West up to the pipeline selection decision for Shah Deniz' European export route," it said in a statement. The parties also agreed that the Shah Deniz companies would get a 50% stake in Nabucco, if the project will be selected to carry the gas to Europe.

The deal will be executed "shortly," Nabucco said in the statement.
