Bulk Gas Production Unit
Historically, Seneca Resources installed a dedicated gas processing unit (GPU) for each gas well on a pad location. Recently, bulk GPUs have been installed at a number of these locations. This advancement in production technology allows for the flow of up to eight wells through a single bulk GPU. This maximizes the size of area that can be reclaimed, which benefits the environment. Bulk GPUs improve production efficiency and reduce maintenance costs. They also require fewer equipment connections and components (particularly pneumatic controllers), which helps to reduce air emissions.
