Default What is this thing? It's leaking oil.

I'm having a problem with my '08 Altima 2.5L. It is intermittently leaving an oil slick on my driveway. At first, I thought it may be from the oil drain plug or a bad seal on the oil filter, but both are clean. It looks like it is coming from some device I've never seen before on the back side of the engine under the intake manifold. It looks like a stack of metal plates on some sort of aluminum base with what looks like two coolant hoses coming out of it. Is this some sort of oil cooler? Here's a picture of it.

Can it be rehabed or do I need to replace it?

Thanks.
