Exact solutions associated with the problem of a compressible or an incompressible fluid displacing a compressible reservoir fluid are derived. Simplified forms for the fluid leak-off coefficients, available in the literature, are deduced as special cases. Nondimensionalized expressions suitable for parameter sensitivity calculations and assumption validation are also presented.
