How Can I Fix This Oil Leak? Pix Attached

My 87 300SDL is leaking oil from the plug in the attached pic. I was thinking it may have something to do with the timing chain tensioner, so I haven't messed with it yet.

Is this something that has a seal or can I just take a socket and tighten it?

It is dripping about 6-8 drops on the garage floor each night.
