the oil pressure sender is a common leaker as well as the intake end seals the only way to find the exact leak source or sources (high likely-hood of many leaks with the mileage you have) is clean the entire engine preferably with steam and a good engine cleaner and add a dye that will show under a black light , but be prepared for multiple sources, were it my engine i would remove it and reseal the entire thing BUT that would be costly if you had to pay labor
