V6 Engine Oil Leak - Help Needed!

Hi all,

I have just found an oil leak around the area where the gear box meets the engine. I first discovers the leak when I found a small amount of smoke rising out of front of the bonnet passengers side.

In the area of the pictures there is a small flow of oil of some kind, but this only seems to happen when the car is warning up. After 15 minutes the flow stops. Before the oil burns it looks a different color to the oil from the dip stick. It almost looks "fresh" and looks greenish to me. There didn't seem to be any less oil in the engine from the dip stick. The car also drives perfectly well.

The car has recently this month had an mot from a reputable indie. They gave the car a good check and said the car was in good conditio. They did regas and reoil the air condoning. In the two weeks since the air conditioning no longer cools the air. Could this be the source of the oil?
