UK Stocks-Factors to watch on Nov 28

    Nov 28 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 index is seen opening 3 points
higher at 7,387.2 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers. 
        
    * BHP BILLITON: BHP Billiton Ltd said on Tuesday it is
looking at an expansion at its Olympic Dam copper mine in south Australia, which
could sharply lift annual production capacity from the project.
    * BRITAIN-PROPERTY: The number of new office developments in London is
falling as higher construction costs and uncertainty over Brexit lead builders
to delay new schemes, a closely-watched industry survey showed on Tuesday.

    * OIL: Oil prices slipped in early Asian trade on Tuesday amid uncertainty
over a possible extension of output cuts by major crude producers and
expectations of higher supply as the Keystone pipeline restarts.
    * GOLD: Gold prices edged lower on Tuesday but held not far off a six-week
high hit in the previous session, as investors awaited a confirmation hearing
for U.S. Federal Reserve chair nominee Jerome Powell and a possible Senate vote
on U.S. tax reforms.
    * The UK blue chip index closed down 0.3 percent at 7,386.92 on Monday,
weighed down by energy and mining stocks as oil prices fell on prospects of
higher U.S. output and metals traded lower on weakening demand from China.
