Singapore's Keppel Corp., the world's largest builder of offshore oil rigs , says first quarter earnings gained 7.8 percent as costs fell. Keppel said Wednesday that net profit rose to 346 million Singapore dollars ($277 million) for the three months ended March 31 from SG$321 million a year earlier. Revenue was steady at SG$2.4 billion while materials and subcontracting costs dropped 3.9 percent to SG$1.5 billion. Chief Executive Choo Chiau Beng said so far this year Keppel's offshore and marine division had secured SG$5 billion of new orders, more than the company signed all last year. Choo said rising global consumption of crude oil should help keep demand for Keppel's rigs high this year.
