1. A system comprising:

  • a fracturing manifold;

    a plurality of fracturing trees coupled to the fracturing manifold; and

    a plurality of fluid conduits, wherein the plurality of fracturing trees is coupled to the fracturing manifold via the plurality of fluid conduits, multiple fracturing trees of the plurality of fracturing trees are each coupled to the fracturing manifold by only a single fluid conduit of the plurality of fluid conduits to facilitate receipt by each of the multiple fracturing trees of fracturing fluid from the fracturing manifold via its respective single fluid conduit, each of the single fluid conduits coupling a respective fracturing tree of the multiple fracturing trees to the fracturing manifold includes a rigid fluid conduit and does not include an additional manifold connected between the respective fracturing tree and the fracturing manifold, each rigid fluid conduit extends from the respective fracturing tree to the fracturing manifold and includes an adjustable fluid conduit that allows an operator to vary a dimension of the rigid fluid conduit to facilitate coupling of the rigid fluid conduit between its respective fracturing tree and the fracturing manifold, the adjustable fluid conduit includes a linearly variable adjustment joint that enables the operator to vary the dimension of the rigid fluid conduit to facilitate coupling of the rigid fluid conduit between its respective fracturing tree and the fracturing manifold.
