UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Oct 28



Oct 28 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening flat on Thursday, according to financial bookmakers.

* ANTOFAGASTA: Antofagasta Plc ANTO.L said on Wednesday it would ask U.S. officials to reconsider a proposed 20-year ban on mining in Minnesota's Boundary Waters region, a plan announced last week that would block its Twin Metals copper and nickel project.

* PETROFAC: British oil services firm Petrofac Ltd PFC.L has won a 550 million euros ($637.51 million) contract by Lithuania's PC ORLEN Lietuva for an expansion programme at its Mažeikiai refinery.

* CAR PRODUCTION: British car production fell by 41.5% year-on-year last month to its lowest level for a September since 1982, according to an industry body, as a lack of semiconductor chips continues to disrupt the sector worldwide.

* GOLD: Gold prices consolidated near the key $1,800 level, supported by a pullback in U.S. bond yields as investors looked forward to key central bank meetings for clues on whether they would consider tightening monetary policy earlier than thought.

* OIL: Oil prices fell for a second straight day, with Brent hitting its lowest in two weeks after official figures showed a surprise jump in U.S. inventories of crude.

* The United Kingdom's blue-chip share index slipped on Wednesday and midcap stocks gained ground after British finance minister Rishi Sunak forecast faster growth and lower borrowing as the economy bounces back from the coronavirus pandemic.
