I believe part of the expense of fuel in West Africa is due to be the lack of refineries, rather than a lack of production.

Less profitable African routes will also be more difficult to justify at a full airport, that’s why the amount of African traffic at Heathrow is falling year over year. BA have cut DAR, VS have cut NBO and ACC. SAA have dropped CPT.
