The Drift Station is a production structure located near the Ghost Island far north-west of Archipelago. It was originally introduced on October 26, 2015 as part of the timed quest called Ghost Island.[1]

A total of 160 assets are needed to complete construction of the Drift Station. This is equivalent to 175 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
