You will have to spray some engine cleaner on everything thats wet with oil and hose it off with water. Then drive the car a little and look for where the fresh oil is coming from to know whats leaking.
There are no sealing washers on any of those lines, they're tapered conical compression fittings and you could try loosening and re tightening them a little bit and see if that helps.
Make sure some oil or grease is on the threads so they tighten on easier and don't damage the male threads on the oil tank.

If you want to save some money it's not hard to remove the rubber part of the long return line that may be the leaker and clamp on a new section of hose like this.
The rubber part of that hose was slowly leaking where it attached to the oil tank when I got my car in '06 and I replaced it with this stainless braided hose and two small t-bolt clamps around 8 years ago and it's never leaked.
