A fire caused by the attack was extinguished in around 40 minutes with no casualties, he said.
Aramco is still assessing the extent of the damage from Monday's strike, which tore a hole measuring roughly two square meters in a diesel storage tank containing about 480,000 barrels, the official said.
"It was a big fire, it was a big explosion but it was controlled".
Brig. Gen. Yahya Sarea, the spokesman for Yemen's northern Houthi rebels, said in a tweet Monday morning that "with God's help and support, the missile force was able to target the Aramco distribution station".

Charred debris, which Aramco said would be examined as part of the investigation, had been laid out on the ground.
KUALA LUMPUR, Nov 25 ― Malaysia has strongly condemned the missile attack targeting the Saudi Aramco oil facility in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Monday.
Yemen has been mired in conflict since the coalition intervened in March 2015 to restore the Yemeni government ousted from power in the capital Sanaa by the Houthis.
The energy giant took reporters to the distribution facility where damage to the tank was visible the day after the attack, with the top rim left fire-blackened and the railings above buckled from the heat.More news: Donald Trump 'plans to pardon former aide Michael Flynn'
"With Yemen at risk of starvation, the Huthis must cease their aggression and work with the United Nations to achieve peace", Raab wrote on Twitter.
"What happened yesterday was another hostile attack, similar to what happened at Khurais and Abqaiq", he said.
"However, this will only demonstrate that Aramco's resilience to such (a) hostile attack will remain, and demonstrate the reliability of our energy supply" within and outside the kingdom, he added.
Houthi forces have carried out many missile and drone strikes on civilian airports and oil infrastructure in Saudi Arabia, including on the capital Riyadh.More news: Scotland Becomes First Country to Provide Free Menstrual Products
The latest attack occurred as the United States deliberates tagging the rebels a "terrorist organization", a move that has drawn concern from humanitarian agencies who say it could cripple aid delivery and tip the country into starvation.
The Saudi-led Arab coalition that has been fighting rebels in Yemen argued shortly thereafter that the Houthis' missile strike in Jeddah was in actual fact an attack on global energy security rather than the country's domestic assets.More news: Taylor Swift 'Folklore' Concert Film to Debut on Disney Plus
