try a search - I think it's called the oil filter adapter and folks have had to re-seal it.

maybe yours is like this? ;http://opposedforces...illustration_1/

not uncommon, I suppose there are other possibilities. Are you sure it's oil and not old power steering fluid?

Buy all the gaskets associated with the oil cooler and filter adaptor. Common oil leak along with valve cover gaskets on your engine.
