VIENNA, June 26 (Reuters) - Nabucco West, the OMV-led consortium that was bidding to build a pipeline to bring Azeri gas to Europe, has not been selected by the gas field's operators, it said on Wednesday.
Nabucco West, which had been a decade in the planning, was competing with the Trans Adriatic Pipeline, a project of Statoil , AXPO and E.ON Ruhrgas.
"The Nabucco West project was not selected by the consortium," OMV said in a statement.
"OMV intends to play a role in further securing and diversifying the gas supply to Europe and will assess alternatives to complement the existing supply routes."
