is it definatly the passenger side? get a flashlight and see if you can see any oil in the valley (under the turbo). if there is i'd say oil return from the turbo, if not then its probably a lower valve cover gasket

id say the lower valve cover gasket is leaking. not too many other places mid engine area that would leak.
