The Foundation Chairman also addressed the need for every worker to be diligent in their work by always being in the field protecting CNL pipelines and other oil facilities from vandals rampaging the creeks. He, therefore, implored the contractors being beneficiaries of the Community Pipeline and Facilities Surveillance Program (CPFSP) to see it as a responsibility to protect the oil field facilities of CNL from third party interference and vandalism, as well as provide the needed environment for CNL operations to thrive in the region.
