    Has the leaking occurred recently after you have changed your last oil filter? In the past I removed the old oil filter but the gasket remained and I didn't notice, parts of the gasket got stuck on the mounting part of the engine body and created a bad seal when I put on the new filter.

It may be the gasket for the oil filter housing I wouldn't attempt this job because there may be a spring loaded check ball that can fly out and get lost when unbolting it, however you can try tightening up the bolts do this in a criss cross pattern and be sure not to over tighten.
