Not sure if I've got the full picture(lol) or details because of the angle of this picture, but what about power steering pump? I understand and have experienced this fault. If it is the the PSP then get it sorted soonest. Mine went a few months before the warranty ran out. The pump leaks on the first thing below it - the alternator. Alternator blows - Very expensive and not uncommon fault. I didn't notice mine leaking on to the alternator but noticed more of an oil mist around the engine. The dealer identified it as a PSP failure. here wasn't even a noticeable loss of PSP oil. I've now got a shiney new PSP attached to the engine. I've no longer got the leak so it must have been correct. Good luck.

PS. Perhaps you could get someone to move steering fully from one side to the other and back whilst your watching under the bonnet. Try it hot and cold. Experience tells me leaks can be difficult to find at times.

It is common for an oily residue inside the intercooler pipe. Comes from the engine fumes. Your oil will be either power steering fluid or engine oil. Once identified you can then narrow it down. You can tell by colour and smell which is which.
To me it looks as if the oil/psp fluid is dripping onto the belt and being thrown around and turning into an oily mist
