Barrels can be set up to be part of an ME Network from Applied Energistics by attaching an ME Storage Bus under the Barrel and setting the item to be stored in the Barrel to store in the Bus' GUI. It is also recommended to configure priority properly such that the item set to be stored is actually stored in the barrel and not in other ME storage inventories on the network.

Items can be inserted into the barrel using a Buildcraft Transport Pipe into the top side, and can be pumped out from the bottom side.
