Jacobs and Co., and the surplus could rise to 150 million tons at the end of 1976. The surplus was made up of 41.3 million tons of laid up tankers, 2.1 million tons of laid up combined carriers, the equivalent of 55.6 million tons for 18 percent slow steaming by tankers and 15 million tons for various inefficiencies.
