We have examined the possible construction of a stationary, spherically symmetric and spatially inhomogeneous wormhole spacetime supported by the phantom energy. The latter is supposed to be represented by the modified Chaplygin gas equation of state. The solutions so obtained satisfy the flare-out and the asymptotic-flatness conditions. It is also shown that the averaged null-energy condition has to be violated for the existence of the wormhole.
