    TC PipeLines said the offer was subject to approval by its 
board of directors. 
    The Iroquois pipeline is jointly operated by TransCanada and 
Dominion Resources Inc  D.N  and extends from the TransCanada 
Mainline system at the U.S. border near New York to markets in 
the U.S. Northeast.  
   The Portland pipeline connects with the TransQuebec and 
Maritimes pipelines at the Canadian border and shares facilities 
with the Maritimes and Northeast Pipeline from Westbrook, Maine 
to a connection with the Tennessee gas system near Boston.
