June 24 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening 17 points higher at 7,091 on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers, and futures FFIc1 were up 0.19%.

* ST. MODWEN PROPERTIES: Blackstone Group BX.N has sweetened its buyout offer for St. Modwen Properties SMP.L to 1.25 billion pounds, the companies said, adding that the London-listed firm was backing the latest proposal.

* CREST NICHOLSON: Crest Nicholson CRST.L swung to a half-year profit and reinstated its dividend.

* WOOD: Wood Plc WG.L forecast a 21% drop in first-half revenue as the engineering and consultancy company received smaller contracts due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

* INFLATION: The Bank of England will say on Thursday whether it is worried about a recent jump in inflation, which broke above the central bank's 2% target and looks set to climb higher as Britain reawakens its economy from its coronavirus slumber.

* CLIMATE: Britain's lack of policies to meet net zero emissions by 2050 is jeopardising its chance of meeting the target, the country's climate advisers said in a progress report.

* OIL: Oil prices climbed after a sharp drawdown in U.S. crude and gasoline stocks reinforced optimism of a quick recovery in fuel demand and on doubts about the future of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal that could end U.S. sanctions on Iranian crude exports.

* The UK blue-chip index .FTSE closed 0.2% lower on Wednesday as economic data showed inflation pressures hit record levels this month, while gains in travel and commodity-linked stocks were offset by a slide in consumer staples.
