It's either 5/8 or 1/2 BSP, and I'm 90% certain it's 5/8.

Tap? could be difficult, try this instead.

Go to a local hydraulic hose specialist and buy one fitting of the correct size, 90degree type. cut the old swage ring off your pipe (cut along it without cutting into the rubber pipe). Use two good quality hose clips to hold it on. It should be fine, as the oil pressure isn't really that high, and you can ask the hydraulic hose specialist (who will supply the hose clips as well if you don't have some) to confirm it will be fine (just remember to let them know the max oil pressure the car can achieve).
