Charlie Alpha is correct...NO GE90 for this plane, United used different engines. Those are used on all 777LR and 777-300ER models.

A little more info: (Wikipedia) The General Electric GE90 is a family of high-bypass turbofan aircraft engines built by GE Aviation for the Boeing 777, with thrust ratings ranging from 74,000 to 115,000 lbf (330 to 510 kN). It entered service with British Airways in November 1995. Currently the world’s largest turbofan engine, it is one of three options for the 777-200, -200ER, and -300 versions, and the exclusive engine of the -200LR, -300ER, and 777F.
