Smile Versa Oil Leak

2012 Versa SL 1.6. It leaks while engine is running. If it idles for 10 -15 minuts or so, it will leak a small puddle, but when not running, it barely leaks at all. I degreased to try to help identify the source of the leak, and it seems to be coming from the side of the engine closest to the firewall. It is not the oil pan or drain plug. I have not had time to jack it up to try to get under it and take a look.

The cross memeber behind the engine is coated with oil, indicating that it is leaking while driving.

My first thought was oil pressure sending unit, but I have no idea of the location on this car. I have found nothing on the internet.

UPDATE: I had time to get under with it running,and the oil filter housing o ring is leaking pretty badly. I looked like it was coming from the rear, but that was just the way it blows back while driving
