Petroleum systems have a high level of complexity due to the presence of a huge variety of organic compounds, mainly hydrocarbons. These characteristics, not only make difficult its recovery but also its study. In this sense, the study of parameters, such as the local variation of interfacial tension (IFT) is essential to understanding the behavior of different interfaces that arise through the extraction, transport and oil refining processes. Accordingly, in the present study, theoretical estimations of IFTs of linear-hydrocarbon-water, linear-hydrocarbon-glycerol, and mixtures of 11 types of organic-liquid with water were performed. The system elements were built by using coarse-graining technique and the dynamics were carried out by the Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD). With this technique was possible to reproduce, in a systematic way, an important set of IFT values for systems of oil industrial interest, which reproduced trends obtained from experimental analogous conditions.
