Yes, there is a way to do it. Each section in the document contains up to three footers so there are lots of story ranges to loop through. The page number itself is a field and is likely to be only one of the numbers you showed in the screen shot eg 8 or 14 or 1 or 8-14. Also depending on how your footers are created, the page number could be sitting directly in the footer or inside a floating text frame in the footer. The code would be different for either case so you would need to provide an actual sample doc.

When you say 'extract', do you mean remove the field or are you trying to extract a specific page's number and put it somewhere else?
