Cold Lake

Stream Description

The main players in the Cold Lake oil sands deposit are Imperial Oil Resources, Cenovus Energy, and Canadian Natural Resources Limited. Cold Lake production is bitumen based and requires the use of steam to release the bitumen from the underground reservoirs, and the use of diluents to meet pipeline viscosity and density specifications.
