Resonance Simulations by Emel’yanenko and Kiseleva in 2007 show that (131696) 2001 XT254 is librating in a 3:7 resonance with Neptune.<ref name="Emel2008">{{#invoke:Citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=journal }}</ref> This libration can be stable for less than 100 million to billions of years.<ref name="Emel2008"/>

It has been observed 22 times over 4 oppositions.<ref name="jpldata"/>
