Oil pump.....
I had it go on my old Outback, they replaced the seal 3 x before they replaced the whole pump assy. (Under warranty).

It could be one of many things. A cam shaft seal, oil pump seal, valve cover seal, blah blah

If it's your cam or crank seals you might want to check your PCV valve. I blew my crank seal from a pinched PCV hose.
