Wouldn't be any oil in this area of the heads, antifreeze maybe, no oil. Still seems like valve covers. Put a thin layer of blue RTV gasket sealer on both sides of the gasket when you replace it, tighten the covers mildly, don't overtighten. Might need to try a different set of covers. Make sure the bolt hole area is not bent from overtightening the bolts.
