if there's a 'chunk' missing is there any 'oil' missing? I should suspect that the oil would be evacuting as soon as possible....right?

that most certainly appears to be a new oil pan situation. I wonder if whatever caused that major damage to the pan didn't also do something else untoward. I guess that will be evident when the pan is replaced...good luck
