pipe coming out of the sump

Hi, on the LD28 in my boat. On the right hand side of the sump looking from the front of the motor there is a pipe coming out of the sump. It only comes up a short distance and has been blanked off. Could anyone tell me what this would be for. I am sure its not an addition and is from the factory.

Greatful for any advise. Thanks Pete

Return to sump drain for the oil from the vac pump mounted on the rear of the alternator.

yes because the vac pump has been removed hence the blank off. I was worried it could be under pressure. Thank you for the information. Pete
