FTSE 100 Seen Opening Little Changed

0649 GMT - The FTSE 100 is expected to open little changed on the last day of the month and first quarter after four consecutive days of gains following an easing in banking sector worries. IG futures data show the London index of blue-chip stocks opening flat after closing 56 points higher on Thursday. Data from the Office for National Statistics Friday showed the U.K. economy grew 0.1% in the fourth quarter compared to the previous quarter, up from a previous estimate of flat growth. However, Nationwide also reported Friday that U.K. house prices fell 3.1% on year in March, the biggest annual decline since July 2009. (

Market Talk: 

UK Isn't Deploying Drax, Lynemouth Carbon Capture Projects Now

1552 ET - The UK government announced eight carbon capture storage and utilization projects today, but submissions from Drax and Lynemouth Power weren't among them. The UK said it's concluded the power bioenergy with carbon capture, use and storage project assessment process, and Drax's and Lynemouth's projects met minimum criteria for deliverability by 2027 but won't be selected for deployment in the first stage, or Track-1, of the efforts. Drax said today it's in formal discussions with the UK government on large-scale power Beccs. The UK government says it will be in touch with projects included in the Beccs assessment process to provide more feedback and let them know about next steps and that "Track-1 is not the extent of our ambition."
