Example 11-3: The Virginia Hills Beaverhill Lake field is a volumetric undersatured reservoir.

Volumetric calculations indicate the reservoir contains 270,6 MMSTB of oil initially in place.
The initial reservoir pressure is 3685 psi. The following additional data is available:

Swi 0.24
Cw 3.62E-06 psi^-1
Cf 4.95E-06 psi^-1
Bw 1 bbl/STB
Pb 1500 psi
N 270.6 MMSTB

The field production and PVT data are summarized below:
