Mysterious Oil leak Passenger side PICS

Trying to track down this passenger side oil leak and having a bit of trouble figuring out where it comes from. Have taken both valve covers and upper timing covers off. She's been like this for a month and I still see oil leaking and collecting at two points. Bottom of the Compressor and at the engine mount. Both Passenger side. My only thought is the lower timing cover, but before I yank off the water pump and go down that road I'd really like any input. Cheers M
