Yes, you need to work with two video tracks, use the crop and scale effect.

  1. Create a sequence from your clip.
  2. Apply the crop effect and set it to left: 50%
  3. Locate the scale settings under the always present motion effect
  4. Disable uniform scaling and set scale width to whatever you like
  5. Add the clip again as a new track on top
  6. Apply the crop effect on this track too and set it to right: 50%

And that's it.
