For the past few years, Mr. Dutta has been working as the project manager for the Hydraulic Fracture Rule for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). He has helped with crafting the preamble and the rule language for  HYPERLINK "https://www.federalregister.gov/articles/2015/03/26/2015-06658/oil-and-gas-hydraulic-fracturing-on-federal-and-indian-lands" Final Hydraulic Fracture Rule, published in the Federal Register, March 26, 2014.  Mr. Dutta led a team of professionals to develop this rule in house with expertise from within the Federal Agency. The team has responded to 1.3 million comments and incorporated suggestions and inputs from these comments to finalize the rule. This has saved the BLM over Five Million Dollars in cost. The primary purpose of this rule is to isolate and protect usable water from the drilling and completion operations; safe management of flow back fluids, and chemical disclosure of 'fracking' fluids. Having worked for USEPA for 20 years, proper environmental management of the oil and gas operations is his keen area of focus. Mr. Dutta coordinates with EPA routinely on related issues and have resolved a number of issues pertaining to the rule for the BLM on chemical disclosures and groundwater protection. He is the author of the following books: “Environmental Treatment Technologies for Hazardous and Medical Wastes – Remedial Scope and Efficacy”, published in March 2002 by Tata McGraw Hill Publishing Company. Mr. Dutta coauthored the following book: “Sustainable Mining Practices – A Global Perspective”, published July 2005  by Balkema Publishers (now a subsidiary Francis & Taylor Group, UK) , coauthored with Dr. Raj Rajaram, and Dr. K. Prarameswaram.
