You could try Dr Beckmanns Stain Slayer. My friend says it takes everything out!

Biological washing powder or washing up liquid work well on oily marks. Try a very diluted solution first, then add more if that doesn't work. Soft cloth and dab the stain, then soak up by pressing with kitchen paper.

Mix 1tbsp. white vinegar and 2cups of warm water. Sponge the area with it and blot dry with paper towels. Repeat several times. If you can still see the stain try adding some lemon juice into the mixture. When it seems like the stain is gone, sponge the area with clear water to remove whatever remained of the cleanser.

I'd start by gently rubbing some cornflour in, to try and get the worst of the oil out.

Manage to clean suncream spots from the car seats using paint thinner and salt. Might be worth giving this a try

Not sure if it's good for nubuck though, suppose you should first test on a small piece of your sofa?

Good to know. I didn't think anything removed oil!
