Publication number: US20220178220A1
Application number: 17/540,842

A wiper barrier plug assembly can include a wiper plug, an expandable plug, and a trigger device that includes a trigger that is communicably coupled to the expandable plug, where the wiper plug, the expandable plug, and the trigger device are coupled to each other. The trigger device can be configured to detect a trigger condition while the trigger device is pumped down a cavity of the casing string. The trigger device can also be configured to operate, upon detecting the trigger condition, the expandable plug from a default position to an expanded position, where the expandable plug, when in the expanded position, is configured to abut against an inner surface of the casing string and to prevent the expandable plug from moving relative to the casing string.
