In accordance with one aspect of the invention, a method of operating a well using gas processed at a same well site is provided. The method discloses of providing a well site defined by a perimeter. In ground fossil fuel is extracted and distributed to a processing facility. The processing facility is wholly located within the perimeter of the well site. Once the fossil-fuel is processed into an engine quality combustible gas, it is moved to a downstream destination. Preferably, the downstream destination is located within the perimeter. An exemplary downstream destination is a combustion engine, wherein the processed gas is burned to create an amount of work. The work drives a device also located within the perimeter. Thus, this method provides a way to draw fossil fuel upwards, process it, and burn it, all within the perimeter of the well site.

The present invention provides a housing for a gas processing apparatus formed by a plurality of walls joined together to form a box-like structure defining a chamber therein. The chamber is configured to retain a pair or more of gas processing pressure vessels in a vertically stacked configuration. The housing has a width less the United States Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration maximum width for a commercial vehicle to allow transportation of the housing without the need for an oversized load shipping permit. The floor width inside the chamber less than a width for said pair of pressure vessels if said vessels were in a side-by-side configuration.
