LNG Cargo Operations

I am trying to get an idea of how the tanks on a large LNG tanker are gauged to determine how much cargo is discharged. What is the method used and are the tanks gauged by an independent authority and just witnessed by ship and terminal personnel?

I believe that most terminals have a representative on board throughtout the discharge. What would be this persons title and what is the extent of his role in the overall cargo operation?

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.
