"More or less. It's riding the lava flow. We'll need to be fast to catch it."

This base was a Confederacy of Independent Systems chemical factory located on the planet Queyta during the Clone Wars. The base was located on a small island that flowed along a river of lava. It was where the chemical weapon swamp gas was being manufactured.
It was destroyed in 21.7 BBY by a strike team of five Jedi Masters which consisted of of Obi-Wan Kenobi and four nomadic Jedi: the Bothan Knol Ven'nari, the mysterious Jon Antilles, the renowned emancipator of slaves Nico Diath, and the ancient Jedi Master Fay. The objective of their mission was to retrieve an antidote for swamp gas before the Separatist could use it against the clone troopers of the Grand Army of the Republic. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, Separatist commander Asajj Ventress and the Gen'Dai assassin Durge were aware of their mission and prepared accordingly for their arrival. A skirmish ensued inside the factory where in Durge shot a Skakoan sentry with his blaster. Due to the pressurized suits the Skakoans were wearing in order to accommodate their need to breathe methane, a large explosion occurred which compromised the facility and caused it to sink.
