Tibanna gas platform JKTCG

A tibanna gas mining platform.

Tibanna gas platforms were large floating structures that were used to extract tibanna gas.


Tibanna gas stations could be found on different gas giants, like Bespin,[1] Kaer,[2] Kril'Dor[3] and Ord Ibanna.

Rogue Squadron raided the Galactic Empire's platforms on Taloraan several months after the Battle of Yavin.[4]

Following the confrontation at Bespin's Cloud City between Darth Vader, Han Solo and Leia Organa, Imperial forces remained on the planet and had a garrison of starfighters watch over the platforms' mining operations. Rebel troopers fought against stormtroopers for control of a platform during a battle on Bespin.[5] The Rebel Alliance also raided the platforms to steal tibanna supplies.[6] Rogue Squadron was assigned to destroy an Imperial research base on Destrillion, but instead found a gas platform guarded by TIE Hunters.[7]

The Jedi Knight Jaden Korr, along with the New Republic pilot Wedge Antilles, liberated another platform on Kril'Dor from the Empire.

Behind the scenesEdit

Tibanna gas platforms first appeared in Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. They have appeared on various planets in various sources.
