What part is this?

Hi, does anybody know what the part circled in the photo is? (The black pipe with the green nipple) And should it have play in it? It appears to be weeping/misting engine oil from where it attaches to the engine and can be moved in and out about 5-10mm at the point where it attaches, the misting is focussed at that point so do think itís coming from elsewhere such as valve cover as that is clean, thanks.

I actually have a spare one lying around but it is a 3 way check valve that connects to brake boost vacuum. On my car a 09 CCTA TSI that capped line is hooked up to a hard line that goes across turbo heat shield to down by the coolant tank. And you should be able to rotate it a bit since it just slides on and off, but I guess it could fail too since its a valve

Thanks, my engine is a Euro CCZB so presumably the capped line is normal for that engine! Should there be any engine oil at the check point location? Could it even be coming from there at all?
