Well, that's the turbo. Not uncommon for some oil to leak past the pipe seals. Given the age of the car doesn't look too bad.

Second that - also considering the crank case vents oily vapours directly into the pre turbo intake pipe that one does not look that bad. I had a leak in a similar place but replaced the pipe and band clamp and it went away.
