Yeah, I gotta say that is deffinatly the o-ring on the oil pump. Super common.
Um, the front crank seal goes through the center of the oil pump, and as for the rest

It's likely the crank seal, and if not that, the oil pump to engine block seal. They are both very easy to replace once you have the timing covers off, and they are both very cheap parts. No highly specialized tools necessary, and no need to dismantle the engine to get at them . You'll need an 806733030 and an 10991AA000 or 806919050 (either will work, though the 806919050 is meant for your car and is about $0.50 more) to get the job done, and you might consider picking up some RTV and resealing the oil pump for good measure while you're in there.
No real need to restate the solutions that he already has
