NEW YORK/LONDON (Reuters) - Activist hedge fund Elliott Management Corp has invested at least $30 million in Cataleya Energy, a small firm focused on oil exploration in Guyana, the world’s newest oil and gas hot spot, two people familiar with the matter said. REUTERS/Luc CohenThe deal reflects rising interest in Guyana, a small South American country of 750,000 whose oil discoveries are set to transform an economy dependent on agriculture and mining. Mike Cawood, chief executive and co-founder of Canada-registered Cataleya, declined to comment on the Elliott investment but said his shareholders come from Guyana, the Caribbean, the United States, Canada and Israel. The investment puts Elliott, run by billionaire Paul Singer, in a consortium with U.S. producer Hess Corp, which owns a 15% stake in Kaieteur. Elliott, a shareholder in Hess, pushed for changes at Hess in 2013 and remained critical here of the company's management for years.

They sink into fountains and lurk in wells, a fortune in wishes but a nightmare to sort and count. Coins are everywhere until they’re nowhere, and at the moment they’re hard to find. China has plans for a digital currency, and the U.S. Federal Reserve is doing “research and experimentation.” Facebook has a currency in the works, and Bitcoin’s evangelists are still preaching. Millions of Americans are skipping right over coins by paying with their phones — or shopping on them. Governments, banks, credit card companies and online communities are among the factions trying to change how people make payments, he said.

PARIS (Reuters) - Brazil’s Embraer is in active talks with potential partners to build a new regional turboprop and could opt for a combination of industrial and financial backing, the head of the planemaker’s commercial division told Reuters. 3 planemaker is also pitching its E2 regional jet as a compact solution for carriers trying to reduce risk after the COVID-19 crisis. Embraer had previously sought to develop its turboprop as part of its tie-up with Boeing. Meijer blamed a recent E2 order slump on buyers waiting for the Boeing deal, followed swiftly by the pandemic. “Airlines that have ability to fly smaller planes do so.”When international travel recovers, airlines serving hubs will also use smaller feeder jets, Meijer said.

LONDON/TORONTO (Reuters) - Britain and Canada struck a rollover trade deal on Saturday to protect the flow of $27 billion-worth (£20.32 billion) of goods and services between them after Brexit, and vowed to start talks on a bespoke agreement next year. Her Canadian counterpart Mary Ng said the transitional agreement “largely replicates” the EU deal on tariff reductions and provisions for labour and environment. “We do want an ambitious, high level comprehensive trade agreement with the UK,” Ng said, signalling Canada wanted similar terms to the EU deal. In less than two years it has agreed trade deals with 53 countries, accounting for 164 billion pounds ($217.82 billion) of British bilateral trade. The UK-Canada Trade Continuity Agreement will be subject to final legal checks before it is formally signed.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Delta Air Lines DAL.N and Canada's WestJet said late on Friday they had scrapped a proposed U.S.-Canada joint venture after the U.S. government demanded changes the airlines insisted were "unreasonable and unacceptable". The airlines said in a filing that the U.S. demands were “arbitrary and capricious” especially the slot divestitures. The Delta-WestJet joint venture would have had a combined 27% share of scheduled air carrier transborder capacity, while the dominant carrier, Air Canada AC.TO, has 45%. Canada, with 38 million people, is the second-largest U.S. international passenger air market after Mexico, with Toronto flights accounting for over 50% of transborder air travel demand. U.S. air carriers had urged slot divestitures at LaGuardia, noting American Airlines AAL.O, Delta and United Air Lines UAL.O control 83% of all slots, with Delta controlling 45% of flights.
