at a deep-sea station 200m below the surface of the Pacific Ocean, workers live in a highly pressurized environment. How many lites of gas at STP must be compressed on the surface to fill the underwater environmen with 2.00 x 10^7 of gas at 20.0 atm?

What gas law do you use to find this?

P1V1 = P2V2
1 atm *V1 = 20 atm*2.00 x 10^7 L
Solve for V1. This assumes the T in the underwater compartment is standard although it probably isn't.
