Sounds like your dipstick tube or mount came loose. If your lucky, you can just pull the tube and replace the orings. If you only have a little luck, you can just vary carefully pull the dipstick mount on the pan apart to reseal it. If your have no luck, the nut came off and you will need to pull the engine.

No power is to be expected, you need oil to fire the injectors, you loose too much and it won't fire at all.

Where you are describing the oil coming from is where the engine valley drains from.

Check the dipstick like stated, but it could be a number of things.

Sounds to me like a lot of oil, so I would start with checking the HPOP and the oil lines for loose fititngs/cracks. Work back from there. Could also be turbo, turbo pedestal (Mine has a small pedestal leak) a few sensors, etc.

Time to do some hunting/cleaning and locate the leak.

Just out of curiousity was it preceeded by a loud bang, clunk or something to indicate some catastrophic engine failure flinging parts through the block?

OIl spout doesn't sound good.....
