Default Torque requirement for oil pan bolts

Anyone know, off hand, what the torque rating is for the oil pan (lower) bolts? Got a 2002 3.5L Maxima with a fresh hole in the oil pan. Any other replacement tips would be greatly appreciated as well.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

If I'm reading that correctly, that is the requirement for the "Drain plug." I need torque rating for the actual bolts that hold the lower oil pan. Thanks anyway.

After looking a little closer the value you listed is actually in-lbs. not ft-lbs. Thanks for the info.
