Keppel Corporation’s net profit rose 6.4 percent to $360.2 million for the quarter ended 31 March 2015, attributable to lower taxation for the period and a smaller portion of profit attributable to non-controlling interests. However, revenue slid 6.1 percent to $2.8 billion, due to lower contributions from its infrastructure unit. The group said it will focus on areas beyond drilling rigs, expecting demand to remain resilient and is already building non-drilling vessels such as accommodation semis and liftboats.
