Gas Production Units (GPUs)
A Gas Production Unit (GPU) is a skid packaged piece of equipment used to regulate well stream flow, pressure, and temperature while helping to remove liquids from gas prior to further processing or pipeline delivery. GPUs are enclosed, self-contained equipment that perform a majority of the well stream fluid separation and are most commonly found in the Marcellus, Utica and Rockies Regions.
A GPU is the first step in liquid separation downstream of the wellhead. The GPU contains either a 2-Phase or 3-Phase Separator (depending on application) and includes an Indirect Fired Heater which utilizes a glycol/water mixture bath, firetube, and process coil. The firetube will heat the glycol/water mixture up to, most commonly, approximately 120 deg. F. so that the well stream fluid has adequate heat transferred through the coil prior to a pressure/temperature cut, which takes place at the coil choke. This pressure cut is necessary due to separator and / or downstream sales line restrictions.
