Engine oil leak???

Have anyone has this issue? See pic. Oil is leaking from the area that I have circled. Is that the valve cover gasket? Anyone has fixed this previously?
Also my check engine light is on, engine shaking roughly when start up. I have not driven the car for few days. I have a 2007 328i

looks like eccentric shaft sensor. If you pull the plug from the sensor, is the plug connector (the metal connector teeth) covered with oil?

Here's a DIY describing the issue and fix, (if the sensor is the problem)
