Paxton Energy, Inc., being advised by operator Bayshore Exploration LLC, that sales of sweet crude oil have commenced effective November 17th 2005 from the Cooke Ranch #3 Escondito discovery well (CR#3) at the Cooke Ranch Field, La Salle County, Texas. Currently, the CR#3 is producing natural gas at rates of 250 thousand cubic feet of gas per day (mcf) through a "14/64" choke and 175 barrels of oil per day (bbls) while recovering completion fluids. Production characteristics from the Cooke Ranch #3 well are expected to be consistent with existing production in the area from other Escondito fields.

Several Escondito fields in the area are currently producing in excess of 8 million cubic feet a day of natural gas equivalent. The Escondito represents a low risk development resource that will greatly enhance shareholder value and will be our focus in the company's 2006 drilling schedule."
