Oil leak ?

My friend has a 2000 F-350, 7.3, 6 speed. He has an oil leak and it is in the valley. He said it looks like it is coming from a plug in the engine valley that is held in by an internal snap ring. Is this plug what took the place of the fuel pump on the OBS trucks and can you replace the O-ring?

His aren't the actual lines leaking. It is coming from the big plug that is on the back side of the pump and is help in with an internal snap ring. Can that plug be removed and the O-ring replaced? I know there is a plug that you can't remove but not sure which one it is.

Got the rear snap ring removed, removed and replaced the o-ring, reinstalled the snap ring and then removed plug on back side, removed and replaced o-ring, reinstalled plug, topped off with oil. Started truck and check for leaks. All appears okay at this time.
