Singapore's Keppel Q3 Profit Falls 38% On Weak Rig Orders


SINGAPORE, Oct 20 (Reuters) - Singaporean conglomerate Keppel Corp posted a 38 percent fall in third-quarter profit, hurt by weak orders for its rigs due to a slump in oil prices.

The company reported a net profit of S$225 million ($162 million) for the three months ended Sept. 30, compared with S$363 million a year ago.
