Nov 5 (Reuters) - Britain's FTSE 100 .FTSE index is seen opening up 17 points higher at 7,387 on Tuesday, according to financial bookmakers.

* ENERGY FIRMS: Drax DRX.L , Equinor EQNR.OL and National Grid NG.L announced plans to develop the world's first net zero emissions industrial zone in the north east of England by 2040, a move they said could help Britain meet its climate targets. COPPER: Prices rose after copper producer Antofagasta ANTO.L cut its output forecast from Chile due to nationwide protests in the world's biggest copper producer. GOLD: Prices edged down as hopes of a Sino-U.S. trade pact boosted the dollar and spurred appetite for riskier assets, blunting investors' interest in holding the non-yielding bullion. The UK blue chip index surged nearly 1% to a more than one-month high on Monday as heavyweight banks, miners and oil stocks were driven higher by hopes of a trade deal between the U.S. and China.
