August 22 (Reuters) - Stock futures indicate a lower opening for Canada's main stock index on Monday due to a drop in oil prices as China ramped up exports of refined products and U.S. producers added more rigs.

September futures on the S&P TSX index were down 0.29 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET.

Canada's main stock index closed a fraction lower on Friday as investors awaited bank earnings and more talk from the U.S. Federal Reserve next week, giving the TSX its third straight directionless day.

Dow Jones Industrial Average e-mini futures were down 0.28 percent at 7:15 a.m. ET. S&P 500 e-mini futures were down 0.23 percent and Nasdaq 100 e-mini futures were down 0.23 percent.
