A Delta Airlines Boeing 757-200, registration N692DL performing flight DL-1601 from Minneapolis,MN to Anchorage,AK (USA) with 180 passengers and 6 crew, was enroute at FL360 about 25nm east of Fort St. John,BC (Canada) when the crew noticed the oil quantity indication for the left hand engine (PW2037) had decreased to zero. A low engine oil pressure indication activated, pressure indicated was 70psi. The crew worked the related checklists, reduced the engine to idle, drifted the aircraft down to FL200 and decided to divert to Edmonton,AB (Canada), where the aircraft landed safely about 50 minutes after leaving FL360.
