UK Stocks-Factors to watch on April 22



April 22 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index .FTSE is seen opening lower on Friday, with futures FFIc1 down 1.35%.

* SHELL: Energy giant Shell SHEL.L is in talks with some Chinese companies to sell its stake in a major Russian gas project amid sanctions imposed on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine, The Telegraph reported.

* THG: British e-commerce company THG THG.L said it had rejected "numerous" bid approaches that failed to reflect its value as it warned inflationary pressure would result in broadly flat earnings this year, missing market forecasts by 22%.

* HOMESERVE-BROOKFIELD: HomeServe Plc HSV.L said it is in talks with Canada's Brookfield Asset Management BAMa.TO for a possible offer for the home repair services firm.

* FCA-UNITE: British labour union Unite said its members at the Financial Conduct Authority would undertake their first strikes and work to rule during May, June and July at the watchdog's London and Edinburgh offices.

* METALS: London copper prices fell and were on track for their third consecutive weekly loss, as rising inventories and COVID-19 lockdowns in top metals consumer China weighed on demand prospects for the red metal.

* GOLD: Gold prices slipped, pressured by the strength in U.S. Treasury yields and the dollar, which also put bullion on course for its first weekly loss in three.

* OIL: Oil prices fell, heading for a drop of nearly 4% for the week, burdened by the prospect of rate hikes, weaker global growth and COVID-19 lockdowns in China hurting demand, even as the European Union weighed a ban on Russian oil.

* FTSE 100: London's FTSE 100 pared losses to end flat on Wednesday as gains in cyclical and energy stocks countered underwhelming production updates from mining companies, while gains in airline stocks and brick maker Ibstock helped the midcap index stay afloat.
