When you put it back together, be very conservative with the sealant, If you block off the drain galleys on the end of the cover, you'll be building up pressure in the engine and popping those green end caps off.
No need to loosen the cam cover and risk causing a leak, just pry the cap out or stab it in the center with a awl type tool & lever off.
