April 23, 2009, AUSTIN, Texas

First American Spatial Solutions, a member of The First American Corporation (NYSE: FAF) family of companies and a leader in spatial and natural hazard risk solutions, and P2 Energy Solutions, a leader in oil and gas information technology, announced today that they have signed an agreement that will enable P2 Energy Solutions to distribute the First American ParcelPoint® database.

ParcelPoint is a national database containing information on more than 113 million U.S. land parcels. The data, which includes the parcel boundary, centroid (or geometric center of the parcel) and physical address is highly accurate and regularly updated by First American Spatial Solutions.

ParcelPoint is part of First American Spatial Solutions’ vast portfolio of data resources that allow industries to accurately locate properties for asset management and property-level risk assessment. Parcels can be used for identifying correct property locations for compliance, tax and risk management purposes.

This level of precise property data allows energy customers to utilize information that can help them with asset placement, right-of-way planning, product transportation and regulatory compliance. ParcelPoint will complement and enhance the information and asset management solutions that P2Energy Solutions supplies to its customers in the oil and gas, wind and solar markets.

“First American is excited to partner with P2Energy Solutions to provide its energy customers with data to help them more efficiently locate and manage their field assets,” said Scott Little, vice president and general manger of First American Spatial Solutions. “By providing access to the most accurate and comprehensive parcel database in the U.S., we enable energy companies to improve decision making, reduce lease acquisition time and quickly identify new areas for drilling.”

“Like First American, P2 Energy Solutions prides itself on attention to detail and makes a commitment to our customers to provide accurate and comprehensive spatial data information,” said Bret Bolin, president and chief executive officer of P2 Energy Solutions. “First American’s ParcelPoint is a natural complement to our extensive Tobin Map Data line of products. This combined offering will give our customers a competitive edge when mapping out their exploration and production strategy.”
