Gazprom, the Russian gas firm, will sign next week an agreement with EDF, the main purpose being the French utility taking a 10% stake in the multi-billion South Stream gas pipeline project, according to the CEO of Gazprom on Thursday.

Italy's ENI and gas giant Gazprom, are partners in the project estimated at 20 billion euros, and they had offered a 20% stake to EDF. The main goal of South Stream, whose construction will start in the first semester of 2012, is to transport approximately 63 billion cubic meters of per year gas from Russia under the Black Sea to the Balkans and into Europe. South Stream project is considered by European Union politicians as a rival to the Nabucco pipeline backed by Brussels, which will carry Caspian and Central Asian gas to Europe, avoiding Russia.
