The Strategy sets priorities of the state energy policy, tasks and key measures for the development of the energy sector. A few measures related to methane abatement are mentioned, including rational use of associated petroleum gas and minimizing the volume of its flaring alongside an overall goal for reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.  

One of the indicators of the Strategy is a "coefficient of efficient utilisation of associated petroleum gas" (%) which is targeted to increase from the current 85.1% (in 2018) to 90% in 2024 and 95% in 2035.
