NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Anadarko Petroleum (APC)  shares closed Thursday's trading session down 0.04% to $46.27 on declining oil prices. 

Crude oil (WTI) is slipping 0.58% to $39.56 per barrel and Brent crude is sliding 0.07% to $40.44 per barrel. 

Record high U.S. stockpiles and a stronger dollar put pressure on oil futures even though Baker Hughes (BHI) reported a bullish report this afternoon.

The firm said the number of rigs operating in the U.S. dropped by 15 to 372 in the previous week.

However, concerns about the overall production persists, the Wall Street Journal reports.
