Cold Lake is a large lake in North East Alberta, Canada. The lake straddles the Alberta/Saskatchewan border, and has a water area of 373km2 (144sqmi). It is also one of the deepest lakes in Alberta with a maximum depth of 99.1m (325.1ft). It has around 24 known species of fish in it and is a major ice fishing lake. It is also major stop for many migrating birds, and is home to one of the largestwarbler population in Alberta. A surface of 248km2 (96sqmi) lies in the province of Alberta.
The Cold Lake Radio Amateurs meet every Saturday morning 10.00am for breakfast @ The Lakeland Inn.
Cold Lake is located in the heart of the Oil and Gas field.
Alberta’s oil reserves play an important role in the Canadian and global economy, supplying stable, reliable energy to the world. Alberta's oil sands have been described by Time Magazine as "Canada's greatest buried energy treasure." But what is oil sand exactly?
Oil sand is a naturally occurring mixture of sand, clay or other minerals, water and bitumen, which is a heavy and extremely viscous oil that must be treated before it can be used by refineries to produce usable fuels such as gasoline and diesel. Bitumen is so viscous that at room temperature it acts much like cold molasses. A variety of treatment methods are currently available to oil sands producers and new methods are put into practice as more research is completed and new technology is developed.
Oil sand can be found in several locations around the globe, including Venezuela, the United States and Russia, but the deposit in Alberta is the largest, most developed and utilizes the most technologically advanced production processes.
