1. A module adapted to connect to a skid and form part of a manifold used to hydraulically fracture a subterranean formation within which a wellbore extends, the module comprising:

  • a first mounting bracket;

    a first port connected to the first mounting bracket and adapted to be in fluid communication with a first pump, wherein the first pump is adapted to pressurize fluid to be conveyed to the wellbore to hydraulically fracture the subterranean formation within which the wellbore extends;

    a second port connected to the first mounting bracket and adapted to be in fluid communication with a second pump that is different from the first pump, wherein the second pump is adapted to pressurize fluid to be conveyed to the wellbore to hydraulically fracture the subterranean formation within which the wellbore extends; and

    a first fitting connected to the first mounting bracket and in fluid communication with at least one of the first and second ports;

    wherein the module provides a vertical offset between the first fitting and;

    the skid when the module is connected to the skid; and

    a horizontal surface upon which the module is adapted to rest when the module is disconnected from the skid;

    wherein the module is adapted to be connected to, and in fluid communication with, another module used to hydraulically fracture the subterranean formation within which the wellbore extends.
