I always recommend downloading the latest version of opatch prior to applying any patches. As far as I know, opatch does not use the OUI, although it does read and update the global inventory. Opatch is a Perl-based utility that is used to apply CPUs and one-off patches. The OUI is used for installing Oracle software and performing upgrades or migrations.

Oracle's Metalink Web site contains a good document about opatch worth reviewing (Doc ID #224346.1 "Where can I find the latest version of opatch?"). Download the latest release of opatch and follow the readme file for information on how to install and run opatch.
