There appears to be some oil leaking from a circular plastic component to the left of the exhaust manifold. Just wondering what this part is called?

Oil filter housing.

There should be an 'o' ring that seals it, I have never seen one leak before, so I would check the o-ring is still present.



How to remove the oil filter:

You get a new o-ring with each oil filter you buy and you can get a new oil filter with its o-ring - here.
