We, Nopaxton.com, are a growing group of Lodi and Saline residents that are concerned about the impact that oil and gas drilling and associated operations may have on our land and environment. Those who live here appreciate the natural beauty, clean water and air, and relative peace and quiet, and want to keep it that way. Based on substantial freely and publicly available information, it is clear that exploitation of oil, gas, and other mineral resources under our land may result in a variety of unintended, unwelcome side-effects, and we do not intend to allow that to happen.

If you live in Lodi or Saline and have been approached by a company calling itself Paxton Resources, or are concerned about potential side-effects of oil and gas drilling on your or your neighbors properties and want to learn more, please contact us at: nopaxton at gmail dot com

Quote from Buck Brannaman

“On my place, for the last three years, it’s looked like an industrial zone, with pits and open trenches and wellheads — unprotected, with no fences around them. There were roads put in where they had no authority to do it, and they drove right through my place, where I do business with my clients, as if they owned it. I felt like I was a guest at my own place — and even an unwelcome guest.”

“They told my wife in a meeting one time, they said, ‘Mary, this is the same as you and I being married. We can do whatever we want, whenever we want, and however we want.’ Now, if that was just an isolated statement, you could say he just made a mistake. But it turns out that that was how Paxton Energy was going to do business for the next three years.”
