1995 90 Quattro front oil leak

Hi everyone, my friend has a 1995 90 Quattro 6 cylinder with a pretty fast oil leak. A dealer told him it was the front crank seal leaking, however when I looked at it I could see it was from a sensor just down and left (about the 7 o-clock position) from the A/C compressor when looking at the engine from the front. I assumed it was the oil pressure sensor but I am not sure if that is what the sensor really is.
It is clearly washing the grunge away with the oil leak.
Can anyone verify what sensor IS in that location if it's not the oil pressure sensor?
Heres a picture.
